This fellow with the proud expression and very dark eyes is wearing a wide open version of the wingtip collar with a thin bowtie. Amazing how many variations of collars and bowties/cravats and ties existed…Men’s fashion was all about the accessories. This is a nice card in great condition, and with uncommon grooves on the edges.
