Popular during the first few years of the twentieth century this high buttoned jacket had distinctive short lapels.|
When seen in full length many of these, but not all, are drape jackets, worn with only the top button fastened. The style included a vertical starched round cornered shirt collar and soft fabric tie.
Loosely knotted the tie was usually tucked into a high waistcoat but never reaches the top of the shirt collar.
The knot is centered on the shirt collar opening covering the collar stud but leaving a gap of up to half an inch at the top.
A neat short hairstyle with no sideburns and a side parting completed the look. 8
