Working Men's clothes. 1850s

undefined

'Farmers and poorer men wore things like sturdy wool, denim, and corduroy because of their tough working conditions. They had wool shirts, and then trousers, sometimes with suspenders. They also had tough boots for working in the field. They always made very good use of old or used dress clothes.' http://victorianfashionproject.weebly.com/mens-styles.html
