The Full Dress Suit.

When to T^HE Full Dress Suit is distinctively the evening-


Wear it. JL dress, and should never be worn before the even-
ing dinner. It can be worn anywhere in the evening and

must be worn on all occasions of formal ceremony, such as weddings, parties,


dinners, receptions, theatre and opera parties, and other occasions whose
formal character is indicated by a formal invitation, and where social
amenities are at their highest. A Full Dress Suit should not be worn
during the day on any occasion whatever, but during the evening it may
be worn whenever and wherever the wearer likes ; but for formal occasions
it is absolutely requisite.

Material. Fine' black worsted, either of very narrow diagonal or


of fine wales running nearly straight across the web, is the
proper material for coat, trousers and vest; or, if desired,

the latter may be of white silk or satin.

The Coat. Coats may have collars cut either with or without lapels.
The roll in either case is light and long, extending to
within five inches of the waist. Both styles are faced wich
satin — the lapels for about half their width, the "shawl " collar (that with-

out lapels) to the outer edge. The skirts taper from the hips to a narrow
bottom. Sleeves are moderately close, finished with real or imitation cuffs.
The edges are bound with very narrow binding.

The Vest. Handsome embroidery upon the vest is very desirable, but
not absolutely essential. If the material is the same
as the suit, it may be either plain or embroidered with
any degree of elegance for which the wearer is willing to pay. The em-
The Full Dress Suit.
broidery is applied about an inch from the edge, along the collar, down the

frontand across the bottom and pockets. If of white silk or satin, it may be
embroidered in the same manner, or may have an all-over embossed or em-
broidered pattern. The silk or satin vests are favored by elegant dressers.
The vest may have either three buttons, spaced about 1% inches apart, or
four buttons, spaced about 2 inches apart. The opening is moderately
curved, or shield-shape, and the collar narrow.

TheTrousers. About 17^ inches at the knee and 17 inches at the bottom
is the proper size, making the trousers neither tight nor
baggy, but trim and shapely. They are finished plain with
no braid down the side seams.

The Collar. The collar should be moderately high, and may be either
straight or with turn-over points. The height should be I %
and 1 }( or 1^ inches behind If straight,
or 2 inches in front
the corners should be sharp, and the opening should be from to inches. % %
Collars that lap are no longer fashionable. The collars Nos. I, 2, 3,
illustrated on page 11, are typical shapes suitable for full dress.

The Shirt. The Full Dress Shirt may have either a linen or pique bosom,
opening in front. If of linen it may be either plain,
pleated or embroidered. The embroidered front is
most desirable, the pleated front the least so, and the latter is not greatly in
vogue. The plain front may have either a corded or hemstitched edge, the
latter being very genteel. The embroidered front may have a very
delicate line of embroidery running down the center upon the line of the

eyelets : or it may have a similar double line, one on each flap with about
two inches plain space between, in which are the eyelets. Large florid pat-
terns of embroidery running over the whole front should be avoided. Neat
all-over patterns of small dots, sprigs or other minute patterns, are in high
favor and excellent taste. Pique woven pattern are
shirts of plain ribbed or

still worn but are not so popular as formerly. Embroidered piques on a fine
ribbed ground, similar to those of embroidered linen, are in high favor.
Some shirts are embroidered in colors more or less delicate. They are not
suitable for full dress. One, two, or three studs may be used, according to
the individual fancy, but two studs are considered the best form.

The Tie. There is but one kind of tie permissible for full dress, —
plain lawn tie % to y% inches wide, tied by the wearer.
Made-up ties should be avoided. Satin or silk ties are not
used at present.

The Cuffs. These may either lap for buttons, or barely meet, for links.
The preference is for the latter, the latest shapes having a
slight opening along their entire length. They may have
either round or square corners, like the cuffs on page II.

The "Jewelry. Absence of display being a characteristic of a modern gen-


tleman's dress, no jewelry whatever is used except that
which has a direct purpose, and this is kept as simple as pos-
sible. and cuff buttons, with a partial exception in

sirable luster. two or three studs are worn, they should be of modest

longer worn by gentlemen. A pin of any kind in the shirt front is the
height of vulgarity. A gold watch chain should never be worn with a dress
suit. Many gentlemen do not wear any chains. A plain black silk guard
chain, or the same mounted with gold, is in good taste.

The Gloves. Pearl kids, with stitching of the same color, are the only
proper gloves for full dress. They should be worn on all

occasions of ceremony.

The Shoes. Congress gaiters, with patent leather uppers and imitation
silk stocking tops.
The Prince Albert Suit.
The Hat. The crush hat is no longer in use. A light-weight silk
hat is the only wear, with full dress.

Miscellan- An undervest of silk or woolen is a necessity with full


eons. dress,.to protect the wearer against pneumonia and other
diseases liable to result from wearing a low-cut vest with-
out an additional undergarment. A muffler to protect the shirt front from
soiling, and to be worn with the overcoat, is also a necessity. It should be
of white silk. Many gentlemen, upon removing it, thrust it within the vest,
leaving it slightly protruding over the shirt front. Such a disposal of it is

unsightly and affected. It would better be left with the overcoat.

The Prince Albert Suit.


When to 'T^HE Prince Albert Suit maybe called the suit for
Wear it. JL formal dress by day, as the Dress Suit is the suit
par excellence of evening dress. It should be worn at wed-
dings, receptions, dinners, and other formal occasions by daylight; and
may be worn on any It may be summar-
occasion but these in the evening.
ized as the formal afternoon suit and the informal evening suit that is, it —
is obligatory at formal affairs in the day, and optional at informal affairs in

the evening. Well along in the afternoon a man may put on his Prince
Albert Suit, and wear it on the street, at informal dinners, at the theatre or
opera, for social calls, and, in fact, anywhere during the evening except at
formal entertainments, where only full dress is suitable. As a rule, men of
moderate tastes will wear the Prince Albert Suit in preference to the Full
Dress or Cutaway, whenever the occasion permits of a choice.

The Mate- For strict dress narrow wale worsteds, black or dark, of
rials. very fine quality, should be used for the coat and the ;

trousers and vest may be of the same material, if desired,


but preferably different. The vest maybe made of any neat fancy vesting,
or of plain or delicately tinted silk or Marseilles. The trousers should be
of line goods, either checked or striped, and ranging from moderately dark
to as light as the wearer may wish. Dove color or fawn in delicate stripes
or checks are popular colorings, but almost any latitude is allowable. For
street wear, and times when strict dress is not necessary, lighter colored
goods may be used, gray worsteds, or modestly striped cheviots.

The Cut. The coat is cut to close moderately high or to roll free, is

silk-faced to end of button-holes and finished with flat


braid. The vest should close with six buttons and have a
notched collar, and the trousers should average 18 inches at the knee and
17^ at the bottom.

The Collar With is more latitude for choice


the Prince Albert Suit there
and Ctiffs. in collars,and besides those described in connection with
the Full Dress Suit, any of the patterns shown on page 11
may be used, according to the individual fancy, only remembering that
violent extremes are not in good taste. The same is true of the cuffs.

The Shirt. A plain white shirt with linen bosom ismost suitable, al-
though pique may be worn if desired, and there is no ob-
jection to embroidery, except that it is almost entirely cov-
ered. Shirts with color in them, such as cheviots, Madras, and fancy
pique, should not be worn with a Prince Albert Suit, except, perhaps, with a
light colored suit, on the street, at the race-track, or on similar occasions.

The Scarf. A Four-in-Hand scarf 2 inches wide, tied by the wearer,


is proper for strict dress. It may be pure white, white
with small pattern in delicate colors, or of solid color of what
are called "evening tints" —mauve, corn, azure, heliotrope, shrimp, etc.,
the latter of gros grain or Ottoman silk. A flat may be worn if de-

stiff shape, the best dressers prefer the Four-in-Hand. For half dress the
latitude in the matter of scarfs is very large, covering the whole range of
colors from black to white, and not only silks but also a wide range of sum-
mer fabrics ; in fact the selection of the scarf is purely a matter of individ-
ual taste. In New York the popular taste in summer wear this season is
for light colors and whites, in silks, pongees, crepes, grenadines, piques,
ducks, etc.

The Gloves. For all formal occasions, pearl kids with stitching of me-
dium size of the same color. For informal occasions, the
street, etc., tan color, dressed or undressed kids, with
medium stitching, either the same color or black.

Shoes. For strict dress, patent leather, kid tops, with buttons.
For the street, laced gaiters of leather, with kid top, toe-
cap and round toe.

Hats. Only a tall hat should be worn with a Prince Albert Suit.
A silk hat is proper for formal dress, and a white, pearl or
fawn for street wear.

.The Cutaway and the Sack Suits.


The Cutaway T^HE Cutaway Suit may 'almost be called the Suit

and its Occasions . 1 Universal, for it is suitable to a greater variety of


occasions, and is more affected by all sorts and conditions
of people than any other. Its convenience and comfort render it popular
for business; its neatness adapt it for most social occasions ;
and it reaches
from one end of the scale almost to the other. Some maintain that the

Cutaway is solely a business, walking, or morning coat — "morning," in a

social sense, meaning the time before the formal dinner, say 6 p.m. but ;

this view is entirely too stringent, for good usage approves the Cutaway of
10

dark, fine material for all occasions except the most formal — such as wed-
dings, parties, dinners, etc., whose character is indicated by written invita-
tions.
For dinners en famille or by verbal invitation, for the theatre or the
opera — except with, parties— for ordinary social calls, for church, for the
street — for these occasions the Cutaway Suit
all is entirely proper ; although
it does not by any means exclude the more formal Prince Albert or Dress
Suit. It must always be borne in mind, however, that with this suit mate-
rial is of much importance ; that coarse materials and bone buttons are
never in place in the evening ; and that the Cutaway when worn socially, so
to speak,must be dark and fine as to coat, while the trousers may be either
dark, which is always good form, or lightish.
It may be said for the Cutaway that it is the suit of good sense ; for it is

alike adapted to the man who is fastidious in dress and him who only desires
to avoid social gaucherie.

The Sack and The proper purpose of the Sack Suit is business, or outdoor
Its Occasions. pursuits or amusements. It is neglige, informal and com-
fortable ; but its social status is that of the shirt sleeves
it has no place in the house. It is permissible anywhere in the morning ;

at business, on the veranda, at a picnic or where formality is absent, and a


comfortable relaxing takes its place ; but when the ladies dress, after lunch-
eon, the Sack Suit must disappear from the house, and be replaced by the
trimmer and therefore more formal Cutaway.
In shape, the Sack may be cut with either round or square corners as the
taste of the wearer may dictate and material too, is a matter of so wide
;

range that it need not be touched on, further than to say that it is entirely
subject to individual preference.

Accessories. The latitude for selection as to what may be worn with


these two suits is so great that there is very little necessity
for instruction. In the selection of suitings, of scarfs, of
vests, of collars, one may please his own fancy, selecting only such articles

as are not fantastic or unusual. Elsewhere, the types of prevailing styles in


minor articles are described with requisite fullness, and a selection to please
the individual fancy may safely be made amongst those types.

The Shape. Both Cutaway and Sack are now made with a longer roll

to the collar, to permit a small portion of the shirt front to


be seen. The vests are cut considerably lower and with
wider openings than last season, showing a bosom
fair share of the shirt
when worn open. The shapes of the scarfs are adjusted to this,
the coat is

the Four-in-Hand and Teck being'the favorites. This wider opening of the
vests is also favorable to the wearing of fancy shirts of colored pique, pat-
tern percales, cheviots, etc., which are only proper with a Cutaway or Sack
Suit.

Vests. White and fancy vests of duck, or similar material, are


very desirable with Cutaway or Sack Suits, especially for
summer wear.

Hats. Any hat may be worn with a Cutaway Suit, and any hat
but a silk hat may be worn with a Sack Suit.

Collars and Cuffs.


FO R full dress the

page, are types. and large points have been
Collars of extreme height
abandoned by good dressers, and the tendency is toward less height and
smaller points. The height in front above the button-hole may range
from 1^ to iyz as extremes, with 2 inches as the favorite medium, and from
\]/2 in the back to 1^ inches high. In straight seam collars the corners are
sharp as shown in the cuts. The opening may vary from exact perpendicu-
13

lar to very slightly V-shaped, and from % to ^ inches in width. If turned


points are preferred, the points should not be longer than those shown on
No. 3. The points should close at the bottom, and the size should not vary
much from 2 inches height in front and \% behind.

For half dress and neglige the range for selection is considerably wider,
the only actual requirement being the avoidance of extreme heights, such as
the 2Y2, inch patterns and the very long and large points.

The type of cuff most recommended is that of which No. 4 is an

example. Link cuffs are by far the most fashionable, but button cuffs, of
course, always retain a degree of popularity. The link cuff may also be
rounded slightly at the corners as shown in No. 5.

Shirts

FULL dress requires a plain white linen


ribbed pique shirt, or either

a plain white

Pleated bosoms are somewhat used but are not greatly in favor. The em-
broidery should be in a single narrow delicate line down the front, or in two
lines, one on each flap, and about two inches apart. Large florid embroi-
dery is in bad taste. No color is admissible. An all-over embroidered pat-
tern of small spots, delicate sprigs or similar design, is also in excellent taste.
One, two, or three studs may be used, but two studs are the best form.

Half Dress, with the Prince Albert or Cutaway Suits, requires a plain
white shirt.

With street dress, morning dress, business dress, or neglige, either white
or fancy shirts may be worn, as desired. Fancy pique's with colored patterns
or embroidery, percales, cheviots, etc., are proper only for business or rec-
reation, and should never be worn in the evening nor for afternoon calling, nor
14

in the house on any occasion except when neglige dress is permissible, as at


the seaside or at summer resorts.

For business, for the street and for morning wear, fancy percale, pique or
cheviot shirts, are most suitable and becoming, and are in some respects
preferable to whit* shirts. They may be worn either with white
collars and cuffs, with collars and cuffs to match the shirt, or with collar to
match, with turned points of white.

considered good form with full dress.

The Four-in-Hand Scarf, tied by the wearer, and the Teck, or made-up
Four-in-Hand, are by far the most fashionable scarfs of this year. The
proper width is 2 or 2% inches with the narrower width in most favor.
Ties of greater width than 1% inches have gone out entirely. They are
worn with every style of suit except the Full Dress. They are necessary
with the Prince Albert Suit for strict dress, and when so worn should be of
silk or satin, either plain white, white with delicate colored pattern, or in
solid tints of delicate colors, such as corn, mauve, saffron, azure, heliotrope,

pink, etc. For informal dress, street wear, business, etc., they may embrace

any material or color whatsoever, silk, satin, grenadine, crepe, pongee,
pique or duck, ranging from white to black and including both high and low
colors. Favorite grounds are indigos, with white or light blue spots of all

sizes, slates and electric blues with flame and flesh-colored spots. Silk
crepes and grenadines, embroidered with white and colors in small figures, are
the choicest things of the season. The delicate colorings and fabrics that are

most suitable for evening and house wear are worn this season a good deal upon
15

the street also. A scarf pin should not be worn with a Four-in-Handor Teck
scarf.

The Flat Scarf may be worn with half dress, for street, business or neg-
lige. The wide patterns should be avoided and the long and narrow shape
selected, that the shirt bosom may show upon each side of it to conform to
the prevailing lower cut of the vests. Any material or color may be worn,
as observed of the Four-in-Hand. A small scarf pin should always be worn
with a flat scarf.

The Windsor tie is most suitable for neglige dress, and may be worn with
a Sack Suit, with boating, yachting, hunting, shooting, or lounging gar-
ments, in the country, at the seaside or elsewhere, where ease goes before
stiffness and formality.
A made-up Windsor, or Windsor band bow, has been introduced this
season, and is a handsome and appropriate substitute for the Windsor,
which is difficult to tie nicely. The diagram herewith will show how to tie
the Windsor.

The De Joinville is a handsome scarf but little worn, mainly because of the
difficulty in tying it. It may either be worn with a
tied as shown
ring, or
in the accompanying diagram and secured with a pin. In bright colors it is
a handsome and suitable scarf for street wear with a Prince Albert Suit, and
in delicate colors is no less suitable for house wear, although not at present
fashionable with strict dress. Before wearing, it should be folded and
pressed with an iron, to form a band about the neck, the ends remaining
un pressed.

For the street, a leather laced gaiter shoe with round toe and toe-cap is

recommended ; and for walking, a heavy double-sole laced shoe of leather


with kid tops.
