In the Regency era men wore tight fit clothing. The trousers and jackets, made from linen or wool. With wide blouse and waistcoat or vest, and a cravat draped around the collar, tight into a bow or a knot. The cravat was made of a light coloured strip of fabric. Men wore a neckband or cravat, draped over the collar. Made of a light coloured strip of fabric. It is possible that cravats were initially worn to hide shirts which were not immaculately clean.
During the day long trousers were worn with boots. In the evening knee long trousers with flat shoes.
Different to the Barok period less decoration and colour was used.
