Dress of the Day - June 14, 2011

Dress of the Day: I decided to feature menswear occasionally, especially iconic garments such as the frock coat and top hat, staples of menswear throughout the 19th century into the 20th. Worn in different colors and fabrics depending on the formality of the event - covering the gamut of weddings, spectator sports, and in this case, for Parliament. The photo features Winston Churchill and David Lloyd George in 1910. Churchill never appeared before the House without frock coat and top hat.
