Royal Naval uniform: pattern 1787
In November 1787, the Admiralty issued the most comprehensive uniform regulations to date. These included modifications on dress and undress uniforms for captains both over and under three years seniority. This uniform, worn by Alexander Hood (1758-98), is a dress coat for a captain over three years seniority. A particular feature is the double row of lace on the cuff. The influence of contemporary fashion is also seen with the narrow lapels, high stand-up collar, narrow skirts and large buttons.
