A basic Victorian men’s outfit starts with high waist pants held up by suspenders in solid wool, plaid, or dark stripes. Next, add a loose Victorian men’s shirt in a white or solid color for working classes. A mid to upper-class man wore a Victorian suit with matching vest. Poor classes may have only afforded a mismatched vest and jacket. Use a cravat or ascot in lieu of a necktie. Wear button-up or lace-up boots on your feet and a Victorian top hat, bowler or cap on your head. Complete the look with a Victorian men’s frock coat, cutaway or morning coat (tailcoat.) Add men’s accessories such as gloves and a pocket watch to really make your costume stand out.
