During the 19th century, men's clothes became less colourful, reflecting a standardisation of dresscodes for those in clerical jobs. Jackets and trousers or suits were generally plain and invariably made in grey, brown, navy blue or black. Shirts were worn in different colours by different classes: professional men generally wore plain white shirts, while men doing manual work wore patterned or coloured shirts. This leaflet is advertising a men's clothing store in Ludgate Hill.
