The sombre colour of this suit befits the sober profession of its wearer, Thomas Coutts (1735-1822), the founder of Coutts Bank. The notched collar and cut-away front of the coat reflect early 19th-century fashions. On the other hand, the old-fashioned breeches are appropriate for Mr Coutts's advanced age.
