Medium: Print on paper
Gentlemen had to dress themselves very carefully in the 19th Century because clothes were a reflection of a person’s social standing and status. His clothes had to fit him perfectly, hats and shoes had to be spotless and highly polished, hair brushed carefully and suits and coats spotless. Men wore business suites everyday and evening suites when they visited the theatre, opera or attended balls.
