1850s Looser fitting, thigh length cutaway coats began to make an appearance though tail and frock coats were still popular. Jackets and matching suits were developing but were only worn in the country or for sports never in town. Waistcoats were generally plainer in light colours or matching material to the coat. Bow ties became popular, trousers were much more imaginative with check, plaid, and striped designs in a variety of colours being acceptable. Whiskers and moustaches fashionable.
