1750s blue riding habit (Victoria and Albert Museum - London UK)

From demodecouture.com/2011/02/18th-century-riding-habitses.

An alternative to military frogging or simulations of it for riding clothes is plain material, in this case camlet (a woven fabric that might have originally been made of camel or goat's hair, now chiefly of goat's hair and silk, or of wool and cotton according to Wikipedia). This has a natural waistline and long sleeves ending with gold cuffs, a common complement to blue in military uniforms, a jabot, and ruffles emerging from the jacket sleeves.
