Men's Clothing from 1900

After the Civil War, grooming and tailoring improved. More variety could be seen in men and women's clothing. The term "dude" came into being for men. It described a "dandy", or a man who wore fancier clothing and spent more time on his appearance. A man's silhouette tended to appear somewhat shapeless with square shoulders, straight waists, and looser-fitting clothing.
