The sack coat or lounge coat continued to replace the frock coat for most informal and semi-formal occasions. Three-piece suits consisting of a sack coat with matching waistcoat (U.S. vest) and trousers were worn, as were matching coat and waistcoat with contrasting trousers, or matching coat and trousers with contrasting waistcoat. Trousers were ankle length with turn-ups orcuffs, and were creased front and back using a trouser press. The gap between the shorter trousers and the shoes was filled with short gaiters or spats
Waistcoats fastened lower on the chest, and were collarless.
The blazer, a navy blue or brightly-colored or striped flannel coat cut like a sack coat with patch pockets and brass buttons, was worn for sports, sailing, and other casual activities.The Norfolk jacket remained fashionable for shooting and rugged outdoor pursuits. It was made of sturdy tweed or similar fabric and featured paired box pleats over the chest and back, with a fabric belt. Worn with matching breeches or (U.S. knickerbockers), it became the Norfolk suit, suitable for bicycling or golf with knee-length stockings and low shoes, or for hunting with sturdy boots or shoeswith leather gaiters.
The cutaway morning coat was still worn for formal day occasions in Europe and major cities elsewhere, with striped trousers.

The Gibson Girl was it the last year of its popularity. Women were beginning to want to think more ofcomfort during the 1910s, although many quickly fell for the hobble skirt. Fabrics became lighter, colors are brighter, and styles are looser. Lowered necklines became popular and sales of cold cream and lemon extract escalate. The Tea Gown was worn 'at home.' The sack, the sheath, oriental costumes, harem trousers, and the Hellenic tunic were all introduced. These were important years for furs.Head gear was worn, very costum-y. When the war began, fashion design and export came to a standstill. "Made in America" fad began. New materials and technologies made more colors available. The suffragettes started a more comfortable fashion - no more hobble skirt - and lots of pockets. Hemlines inched up (to show ankles).
