WILKINSON & SON Gentlemen's Court Suit, London, ca. 1910

WILKINSON & SON Gentlemen's Court Suit, London, ca. 1910

antique court suit 1910

Court suits were worn for important cermonial occasions and at court. Despite the changes in fashion during the 19th century, court suits resemble the type of clothes a late 18th-century gentleman might have worn.

After 1869 new regulations were introduced for gentlemen's court dress. The cut and form of the this style of suit were much the same as before, but the coat and breeches were usually made of black/dark blue velvet instead of dark cloth. Waistcoats also tended to be made of plain white/cream silk or black velvet.

By 1900 there were two main designs for court dress. This court suit is an example of the 'new style', which included a dark blue velvet tailcoat which was worn open. The 'old style' consisted of a velvet frock coat with fronts sloping back from the waist, stand collar and black silk wig-bag (source: V&A Museum).

This velvet dress suit was worn ca. 1910 in London. Maker: Wilkinson & Son, London. Complete with jacket/tailcoat (A); knee-breeches (B), and cream satin waistcoat (C) all with cut-steel buttons, bicorne hat (D), pair of buckled shoes (E), and sword (F) and an original metal case (G). All in very good to excellent condition.
