Suit ca. 1740-1760 via The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art This suit is the epitome of mid-18th century men’s wear with its curved jacket front, fitted breeches, narrow sleeves and decorative mid-thigh length waistcoat. Waistcoats of the time were a vehicle for imagination and, in this case, add an ornate aspect to an otherwise conservative ensemble. Items of suit linked through matching buttons.
