Abstract:Curiously enough, men's dress during this period had very little noteworthy about it. There was nothing spectacular in the way of styles and there seemed to be some want of inventiveness and orginality in design. We at the "Tailor and Cutter" are often asked by museums and art galleries if we can supply garments typical of the day-to-day dress of the male. Regretfully, we have to admit our inability to oblige. It is probable that the "ordinariness" of 1890–1914 male dress is the reason for the paucity of good examples.
