1878 Sack Suit

The pattern for this three-piece suit is based on an 1878 drafting system created by J.O. Madison and an 1870s suit in the Wisconsin Historical Societyís costume collection. According to contemporary sources, men wore sack suits for traveling, business, and morning wear on the street.
