The image depicts two couples by the shore, one comments on the other, talking about the chic dressing of the other couple. This cartoon features men and women's clothing as the subject and satirizes the outlandish styles of both. The 'chic' man is dressed in a large bow and bell-bottomed trousers with a large coat to match. This image is contrasted with the other man who is dressed more sedately. The ostentatious style of clothing is clearly being mocked.
