GENERAL DESCRIPTION
By the early 19th century the standard men’s outfit had evolved a bit from the mid-18th-century styles. The Work Smock and standard Workshirt stayed the same, but the waistcoat worn over the shirt was shorter, and trousers were commonly worn instead of breeches. Neckwear was still very standard at this time, and a cotton cravat was worn. The shoes were similar to those worn in the 18th-century, but in an outdoor working situation like this, laces typically replaced buckles. To top it all off, the round straw hat provided plenty of protection from the sun. *
