Suit & waistcoat circa late 1770s/1780s. French. Court dress. Silk, silver thread, burgundy. Part of the exhibition ‘Déboutonner la mode’ (Unbutton fashion) at Paris’ decorative arts’ museum. The large silver buttons are entirely decorative.
This would be among the very blingiest of suits, even for late 18th century France.
Brand new from Canali for spring, this blended wool-silk-linen lightweight sport coat in a vibrant blue check with patch pockets and butterfly lined interior makes a great one to wear during the day with bright brown trousers and chestnut wingtips.
“I’m wearing a long linen coat from Urban Outfitters, white boxy t-shirt from Old Navy, black slim jeans from Guess, and Nike Hurache whole black shoes. I like simple, casual, minimalist clothes, the price and the brand do not matter. It is about how you play with different kinds of clothes.”
