    1755-1765 British Suit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York - From the curators' comments: "The British aesthetic during the 18th century tended to veer away from the ostentatious French styles being worn at the same time. The textiles were more somber, the silhouettes more simple and the fashions more basic while decoration and elaborate textiles flourished in France....This particular British suit is exemplary...with its somber wool, minimal decoration and plain buttons."

Suit, 1765-75, French, silk, metal and cotton. "The distinctive buttons on this 18th-century suit characterize the flamboyance with which French men dressed to match the opulence of their female counterparts. The liberally applied buttons would have been a lively pink color and glittering in candlelight next to the elegant textile and salmon-colored lining."

Suit (Frockcoat, waistcoat and breeches), Italian, 1740-1760, silk, metal, cotton, linen. 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. Unlike most suits of the period, this suit can be undoubtedly linked through matching buttons on the coat, breeches and waistcoat.
