Get your Beau Brummell on!
By the end of the 18th century, men's fashion had transformed. Necklines came close to the neck, often with small stand collars. Front openings became straight and double-breasted versions were common. Revers were faced with contrasting fabric that would show if the revers were worn open. The bottom of the waistcoat now ended at the natural waist, in keeping with the cut-away fronts of the frock coat.
