Representation of mens fashion. Backside with hand drawn pattern.
In the second half of the 19th century, the overall fashion effort decreased. In the period since the founding years after the Franco-Prussian War 1870-1871, however, a rapid and arbitrary change began. Wide and tight, long and short skirts, high and low hairstyles, big and small hats came and went. Throughout the time, men's fashion did not follow the variety of women's fashion, either in terms of shape or color. Rather, in this period of economic and social change, it had a pronounced pull towards simplicity. Clothing should not be an obstacle to work and movement. The complicated neck bandies of the Biedermeier period gradually disappeared. Functional jackets with long, differently colored pants and a colored tie were preferred. Outside the house, the gentleman was wearing an overskirt, a low, stiff hat, and low-heeled shoes. Beards and sober hairstyles completed the look.
