Men's Fashion from the 18th Century Part 1
I have always been fascinated by men's suiting from the 18th Century. I can not wear any of it, since I am not a man and don't live in the 18th century, but I do love the look of it.

Maria Feodorovna appears to like stripes. This dress lacks panniers and could even be compared to a dress from the early 1900s, save for the lack of a pouter pigeon bodice. The dress has a stomacher section, though not a stomacher, that matches the under-skirt while the rest of the bodice matches the over-skirt.

Object: Farm labourer's clothing (clothing)
These rare surviving examples of early 18th century work clothes were found stuffed up a chimney in Toft monks, Norfolk. It is uncertain whether the clothes were placed up the chimney to stop draughts or as a ritual protection against evil.
