Back view, Gentleman's suit, England, c 1760. Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Bright yellow silk robe à la française with white linen and cotton ruffles, British, ca. 1760.

The absence of ornament, other than basic ruffles, makes this a perfect example, free from distractions and affirming thereby the adorned beauty of 18th C. silhouette and style, so often masked under frills and coquetry.
