Dressing jacket


Not on view

The design of this dressing jacket has incorporated the slashing found in men's Renaissance doublets in the yoke bands. During the 1890s, historical influences were quite common and so it is appropriate that this jacket is an expression of that once fashionable garment. The decorative pattern made by these deliberate cuts is a handsome addition to this functional piece of morning wear.
