The costume originated in Europe, and structure of costume goes back to German national dress that came south from Northern Europe. It is said that at that time it was worn by Western European fishermen. They lived with sea all year round and earned from sea. It was convenient to fish by wearing loose collars and fewer buttons. It is based on principle of separating and combining structure of activity characteristics of human body and body shape, and forms method of sewing clothes with folds (preservation), splitting and splitting, and sets popular model of clothing structure into future. There is also information that costume is traditional clothing of British royal family. It is a men's three-piece suit in same fabric, consisting of a jacket, vest and trousers. In terms of shape, it continues basic shape of a man's dress. It refers to orthodox dress in everyday wear. It is used on a wide variety of occasions and has influenced international community from Europe. It has become guiding garment of world, that is, international clothing.
The development of costumes dates back about 300 years and is divided into four stages:
Stage 1.Classic suit
Currently, costume is characterized by cutting pieces of fabric with concept of a three-dimensional geometric structure, and then stitching them into clothes. "Justauk orps" (justauc orps) - oldest men's uniform of western model, which existed around 1670-1770. It's just that Cole doesn't button front placket at all, and usually fastens only a few buttons above and below waist line - this is a modern single-breasted suit.
Second stage: suit
The frock coat is an orthodox example of a costume dress from 1770s-1870s. Until first half of nineteenth century, semi-leggings called "kiorot" were popular among European men and nobility. Later, during French Revolution, it was popular to wear "pontalon" trousers to express one's opposition to nobility. By second half of nineteenth century, legs generally became looser, shaping style of modern suit trousers.
Phase Three: Standard Suit The current suit model refers to "bag suit" from around 1870-1970.
Stage Four: Casual Suit
A modified style of suit is called "Lounge Jacket", that is, "casual jacket" has existed from 1850 to present. Everyday costume from 150 years to present is a "hybrid variation" of Orthodox costume model.
There are also some "strong-willed" trends in costume design, for example: In 1940, cross-shoulder suit was popular during World War II. At that time, people really liked powerful military demeanor, so military uniform was popular with both men and women.
Roughly since 1940, Bold look style has been popular in menswear. The so-called "daring" means daring, which is characterized by a bold exaggeration and emphasizing broad and strong shoulders of men with thick and wide shoulder pads. Accordingly, collar, lapel and tie also became wider, and arc in lower corner of front hem also became square and rigid. Pants are baggy and have a long stride.
In 1982 (80s) came retro era for rustic suits. With recovery of world economy, traditional western culture of construction clothing has become appreciated again. The inverted A-line suit in late 1970s returned to traditional British style at this time, but what made it different from past is that in this traditional style, people strove for comfort. Loose combinations of one-piece tops and trousers in different colors are popular. People prefer a relaxed casual vibe in traditional styles and look for traditional beauty in loose and comfortable casual wear. In this context, "pastoral style" of tweed in Britain is very fashionable, and since then casual suits have become more and more prosperous.
The reason why suits last forever is not only that effect of clothing can reflect generosity and simplicity, regularity, exquisite craftsmanship and fit, but also that the age of their wearers is great. First choice for important occasions. Another important reason is that costumes have a long and rich history full of deep cultural connotations.
