Bijoux #3 is a Single Breasted Notched Collar Vest and is typical of the type worn with both frock coats and sack suits. The collar is notched, it buttons very high on the chest, has four welt pockets and two inside breast pockets. There is a cinch belt, also called a “back strap” in the back. The collar is “Laid on”, the term for a collar that does not go all the way around the neck. This is typical of mid to late 19th c. vest collars. The center front at the waist comes to a very subtle point.
