One is trimmed with bands of velvet of a darker shade than the tweed, and finished with fancy ornaments. The other gives us a darker cloth dress, with a chic waistcoat and sleeve-puffs of striped silk and cord ornaments. The hats are felt, trimmed with velvet, flowers, and plumes.” — 1902 Illustrated London News
