Royal Naval Waistcoat.
Royal Naval uniform: pattern 1795. Circa 1795. English. Cotton; gilt brass & wool.

This white wool waistcoat of the 1795 pattern. The rank and status of the wearer was indicated by the pattern of the button, in this case a flag officer. It is interesting to note that the waistcoat retains the three-point pocket flap, which would have been considered old fashioned in 1795. | Royal Museums Greenwich
