Queen Victoria's Privy Council Dress, worn at her first Privy Council on June 1837

Waistcoat, France, 1775-80. Pink silk overlaid with machine-made net and embroidered in colored silks. Pink was a popular color for men’s dress, particularly in the 1770s during the period of the Macaronis – as young dandies, who dressed in the latest French and Italian styles on returning from the Grand Tour were known. This waistcoat is typical in style for the 1770s; the skirts have shortened to the top of the thigh.


1775 men's waistcoat made of silk. The bright pink and green colors indicate that perhaps a Macaroni or very loud dressing man could have worn this waistcoat.
