More paintings... less words

Barthelemy Charles, Comte de Dreux-Nancre, 1797, Martin Drolling

This is an excellent example of the waistcoat that seems to have been most popular right before the turn of the century... The button placement for the double-breasted front is right above the sides of the fall-front of his breeches. That seems a little wide, but I like it.
