One of the popular late Victorian fashions was to use the waistcoat and trousers from a suit in an ensemble with an odd jacket or blazer. The practice was common in summer when gentlemen preferred to wear thinner, less bulky jackets. Of course, no Victorian gentleman would be seen dead without a waistcoat.

Hmmm...really digging the doulbe breasted waistcoat and the trousers. But the colour of the tie does not really match with the underlying shirt...anyway, still looking dapper as ever.

Really? I thought blue and light brown to be a rather conventional combination?

Having said that, I can't seem to find any other examples. Haha.

Admittedly, it's a slightly different brown but this combination (blue/light brown) is fairly common. I like the earth/water, warm/cool contrast.
