    According to “The Gentlemen's Book of Etiquette,” the first rule of guidance for the 1860s Victorian gentleman in matters of clothing is, "Let the dress suit the occasion." It is advised that it is just as absurd for a man to go into the street in the morning with his dress coat, white kid gloves, and dancing boots, as it is for a lady to promenade the fashionable streets in full evening dress.

    Victorian Morning Costume Features a suit of grey Scotch stripe; the coat is the single-breasted university style with short turnovers closing by two buttons on the chest. The edges are plain and there are pockets in the back pleats. The sleeves have cuffs and two buttons at the seams. The suit includes a single-breasted university waistcoat and trousers.

    Single breasted morning coat c.1900: suitable for formal occasions, but less formal than the frock coat. Note the shoes tied with ribbon laces.

    Frock coat - A frock coat is a man's coat characterised by knee-length skirts all around the base, popular during the Victorian and Edwardian periods. The double-breasted style is sometimes called a Prince Albert (after the consort to Queen Victoria). The frock coat is a fitted, long-sleeved coat with a centre vent at the back, and some features unusual in post-Victorian dress
