By the 1760s men’s formal day wear was becoming more subdued in colour and decoration. This suit of wool instead of silk, with only a narrow trimming of braid, is an example of the new restraint evident in men’s clothing. By 1760 the fronts of the coat were starting to curve back. The side pleats are less voluminous than they were earlier in the century. The waistcoat has shortened to mid-thigh length, and the sleeves are cut more tightly than in the 1750s.
