Be the best dressed at the Ball!

By the 1860s, the Dress Coat became fully modern, cut double-breasted, and always worn open and unbuttoned. Many coats and jackets were trimmed with dark braid. By the 1880s, all of the braid and other decoration was gone. The Dress Coat of the 1880s is truly the modern Tail Coat.
