Regency men's dresscoat By the turn of the 19th century, the dresscoat was the coat of choice for every day use. The coat fronts were sharply cut away from just below the waist, with the back finished in a single pleat each side of the center back vent. The garment lacked any sense of shapeliness until a waist seam and button-stand were introduced in the 1820's, giving the tailor more seams with which to work.

The waistcoat was made short and square in appearance with wide, rectangular welt pockets and a high stand collar. By 1810 the length gradually increased and more shape was given at the side seams while the 'boat pockets' and stand-up collar became less substantial in width. Wool, cotton and silk with patterns and stripes (stripes running horizontal rather than vertical were popular), were found in the early part of the century, with later waistcoats in solid shades embellished with elaborate embroidery. Narrow fall-front breeches were worn in the early part of the 19th century but gradually gave way to the longer pantaloons and trousers. Cotton and linen in twill and satin weaves were used for summer, while the heavier woollens in darker shades in plain, checks or stripes were reserved for winter.

"...the collar and lapel fall back on the shoulder; the sleeve small all the way down, and very small at the hand, the cuff is about 2 1/2" wide. The trousers are made of half-milled kerseymere; they are made very tight all the way down, except below the calf."
