Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0914046284, Paperback)The end of Men as Dandies & peacocks! Fashions did not change much since they were set by George IV and Beau Brummell except they were less extreme. This book is a good look at what they were between the 1820s up to 1850 and how to make them. After that they got more drab and less interesting. George Walker's rare "The Tailor's Masterpiece" of 1838 is paired with the full text of "Hints on Etiquette" 1836 and fashion plates from Modes de Paris to give a full picture of what was worn and when, what was proper and what was not. The manual features a wide range of all types of coats, capes, jackets, waistcoats, and uniforms.
