Middle class Actor studying his role while walking. (1778)

 Though the Dress of Men is less varied than that of Women, yet the little-masters are come to spread a great diversity in material, in trims and accessories; informal suits felt the strangest and most changes: we have occasion to give one by the following detailed description.

For the moment,this is a half beverlet* with a coupé collar.  The word coupé, in tailors' terms, when one is speaking of material, signifies a different color; straight sleeves with little matching buttons on them; beverlet lining, matching the vest and breeches in color; gold garters, with square d'Artois buckles.

Fur hat, the two hat stays pulled up on the sides; a gold cord around the crown and coming back to the front; large finger-curls in Marseilles style.

* A fabric of some sort, but I'm not sure what it consists of yet.
