    The coat sleeve length could use alterations, yes. The other man's is right, and he's still not showing any cuff. I suppose even back then it was a no-no?

    Great photo Fabienne.
    Wow... there are some of my grandfather when he was a young tailor in Torquay (I think - maybe those were while he was on the Row), in some seriously dashing suits. Unfortunately they are about 6k miles away [​IMG]

    Two ancestors - just old photographs of the original paintings or daguerrotypes. Funny how these costumes are probably just fifty years or slightly more apart - fashion certainly changed. There's the late 18th century bewigged and lace-cravatted civil servant, and the early 19th century merchant, with the Brummell influence in between. [​IMG] [​IMG]
