1810 Sailor

Missing Image

GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The 19th-century brought more changes to the sailor’s wardrobe. The outerwear was still a Short Jacket, but it was double-breasted and featured a collar. By this time, the wide Sailor Slops had gone out of fashion, and were replaced by narrow-legged trousers. An 18th Century Workshirt was worn beneath the Short Jacket. An Early 19th Century Waistcoat would also be a good addition along with the Silk Cravat. For going ashore, the Top Hat would have been a perfect finish to the sailor’s wardrobe. *
