Man's 18th Century Court Vest

This vest exemplifies men's fashions of this time; men were the peacocks, and women were a little more muted.

This lovely vest is made from floral cotton, and is lined and backed with pale turquoise silk charmeuse. It was typical for the front to be longer than the back, so to show better under the man's jacket. The buttons are mirrored filigree, and set off the vest nicely. The vest is most reasonably priced at $90.
