English Costume History by Dion Clayton Calthrop


The occupational dress costume history images shown below are from the illustrations appendix to the chapter on late C18th English dress 1760-1820, and taken from English Costume by Dion Clayton Calthrop. As there are so many illustrations to this particular chapter, I have divided it into 3 sections. This page - Page 2 - Shows the occupational dress plates of men's clothing of this 60 year Georgian reign. For the Introduction to this book see this introduction written by Dion Clayton Calthrop.  My comments are in italics.

Men's English Costume Drawings GEORGE III

Calthrop wrote:-Throughout this long reign the changes of costume are so frequent, so varied, and so jumbled together, that any precise account of them would be impossible. I have endeavoured to give a leading example of most kind of styles in the budget of drawings which goes with this chapter.
