1880 Men's Clothing Styles of late Victorian overcoats are featured in this plate from 1882. The styles represented are known by different names, such as the Albert, Coaching, and Newmarket and were popular for many years, the principal changes in their shapes being in the length of waist.
According to “The Gentlemen's Book of Etiquette,” the first rule of guidance for the 1860s Victorian gentleman in matters of clothing is, "Let the dress suit the occasion." It is advised that it is just as absurd for a man to go into the street in the morning with his dress coat, white kid gloves, and dancing boots, as it is for a lady to promenade the fashionable streets in full evening dress.
