40 Amazing Tintypes of Victorian Teenage Boys

Unlike the women’s clothing, Victorian men’s fashion did not undergo any radical change. Men wore stove-pipe pants during the initial years of the century. The men’s costumes were to be formal, sober and elegant during the work hours and otherwise. The basic feature of the Victorian men’s clothing was clean and basic lines, use of dark color and a detailed work of the costume.

Around the 1840s, the general trend followed by men as far as clothes were concerned was to wear frock coats which fitted tightly and were up to the calf length. Along with the coat, men also wore waist-coats or vests. By the 1850s, men wore shirts with high collars and a bow. The aristocratic class normally wore the top-hats while the bowler hats were worn by the working-class.

During the 1860s, men’s fashion underwent a change. The neckties were broader and were to be tied in a bow or looped into a loose knot and tied with a stickpin. Another change that took place was that the frock coats became shorter.

Three-piece suits were invented around the 1870s and instantly were a hit among the people. During the mid-1800s, dinner jackets were also used for formal occasions. By the end of 1880s, men had started wearing the newly introduced blazers for outdoor activities like sports, sailing, etc.
