Frock coat, morning coat, waistcoat, tuxedo . . . All these garments were familiar to every fashionable man in the 1890s. Only the tuxedo (trendy 100 years ago) has endured as a classic symbol of the fashionable man. Today the latest fashion for some men means Versace or Parasuco. Still, despite evidence to the contrary, few men are willing to admit to more than a slight interest in fashion.
