Victorian Portrait Gallery - 1890 Clothing
These strapping young men are photographed with sporting equipment of the era and you can see a wide range of clothing. From daily dress wear to the proper athletic attire of the gentlemen in the front row. Note the ubiquitous derby and four-in-hand ties. The third gentleman from the left shows the popular narrow lapel on his jacket and is fully buttoned so that only a small bit of his tie is visible. Others display the more loosely tied Full Windsor knot.
