If you are attending one such party and want to go with the style then here is your guide.Choose to go with coats that come with tails and pair them with knee breaches and silk stockings.

The 1800s after Beau Brummell

As much as the 1800s was every fashion lover's nightmare this was also the period when the savoir of men's fashion came along. Beau Brummell was a part of the court at that time and arguably a total hipster. The man had radical thinking and helped the men get over the old British style suits of that period.Instead of the frock coats and breeches, Beau Brummell introduced the style of the simple jackets and the full length trousers. Beau Brummell's vision of the suits formed the basis of the suit style that we have now.

Beau Brummell was serious about his vision and it is said that he utilized his connection with the people in the upper echelon of the British society and became friends with the Prince. With the recommendation from the Prince himself the design of Beau Brummell soon gained popularity. Beau Brummell's style of the suits were followed till the end of the 1800s.

The 1900s

With the start of the new century, the mens garments became more subtle. The tailcoats were losing their importance with the people choosing the old style wedding suits over the tuxedos even for important events like weddings. Then came the modern tuxedo style that we have right now. The tail in the tailcoat was left behind and the tuxedo jacket became short. There was even a time when people preferred the midnight blue tuxedos over the black tuxedos.

As for the suits, the working class men went with suits that were of dark colors and made from thicker materials. A lot of manual work was needed at that time and hence people chose the sturdy fabrics. There was also the matter of cold to consider. The heating and the cooling systems of that time weren't very developed and people used layered garments to keep themselves warm.

The 1920s is often termed as the roaring 1920s since fashion at that time was considered to be at the top. There were different sects of people and each chose a style that would be convenient for them. However the 1920s classic fit old style suits are the ones that are closest to the style of the modern suits that we have now.While the working class men chose suits that were subtle, there were the gangsters who went with the eye catching styles. Prohibition was prevalent at that time and the gangsters were abundant since transporting alcohol illegally gained a lot of money. The old British style suits at that time were made from heavy wool and were usually in dark grey or black colors. If you are a fan of the peaky blinders then you can choose to go with the iconic style of the three piece wool old style suit paired with a white dress shirt and a long tie. Add a newsboy cap, a cigar, a pair of leather casual boots and a long overcoat to perfect the look.
