During the early 1900s, easy to see Edwardian men’s clothing was relatively formal, with specific outfits worn at different times of the day. Interestingly, it was during the 1900-1919 years that for the first time, clothing started to be mass-produced. This reduced the need to have something tailor-made and ready made clothing more accessible for all, regardless of wealth or social position.
Before the turn of the 20th century, older gentlemen wore frock coats while younger men were opting for morning coats. However, in 1900, sartorial rules were beginning to become less restrictive and men would be seen in either a frock coat, a morning coat or a sack suit.
