Men's Clothing; Fashion; Harris Tweed
This is an example of a Norfolk Jacket, a style originally popular in outdoor activities was later adopted by the general public. This style of coat was also adopted by the Rifle Corps in the 1860s. The jacket is made of Harris Tweed and the boxy cut of the jacket highlights broad shoulders and holds in the waist of the wearer. This piece illustrates the relationship between the clothing of the upper classes being adopted by those in the middle class.
