Introduction to the Morning Dress Guide

I have received countless inquiries concerning proper morning dress and due to the lack of proper information online, we decided to create the Morning Dress Guide.

For many people, a glimpse at a stately gentleman in morning dress often begs the question, why don’t men dress like that anymore? The answer, of course, is that many don’t know it exists. So when Royals get married, they don’t quite understand what men are wearing.

Yet, a number of elegant men still do dress that way today, whether it is at Royal Ascot or at formal weddings – and you can too.

To help you look your best and learn about the history of morning wear, we created the ultimate morning dress guide. We researched a number of books and old magazines, dug up over 100 vintage fashion illustrations and 200 photographs, clearly illustrating every little formal daywear detail step by step.

    Since we deal in manners here, you should never wish someone a “Happy Memorial Day”.

    There’s nothing “happy” about it for a lot of people.

    Just sayin’, in the current parlance.

    • Rico says:

      While I believe we all understand your point, It could be made for July 4th, Christmas, and a few of the other major holidays. Let’s be gentle with ourselves and accept the wish for a happy day with grace.

    • David says:

      Absolutely right. Memorial Day is the day we honor those who fought to defend our freedoms against the Nazis and the Fascists.

      • Chris says:

        Unfortunately, that is incorrect. Memorial Day is to honor those that gave the ultimate sacrifice to their country. Those of us who are still alive have Veterans Day.

    GENTLEMEN,
    MY HABERDASHER SOLD HIS LAST SILK TOP HAT IN 1960, AND NO LONGER CARRIES THEY. IN FACT, THE
    MACHINES THAT MADE THE SILK CLOTH HAVE BEEN DISCARDED. SO, WHERE CAN I BUY A LATE MODEL, SAY
    FROM THE 1940S. THEN I CAN LOOK AS DAPPER AS YOU DO.
    RESPECTFULLY,
    MICHAEL KOLIGIAN

    • David says:

      Exactly right…where can one find a silk top hat? Sven has not responded. Nor has he responded to other questions which have been posed on this forum. Be that as it may, I do believe that Lock & Co. in London still carries them.

      Try a dealer in antique or vintage clothing.
      See vintageexpo.com or Amazon Drygoods in Davenport, Iowa.
