Front and Back View of Walking Suit6 viewsThese photos were taken in daylight to better capture the rich colouring of the wool. The suit is shown with a reproduction Edwardian cloche-style hat, trimmed with black silk taffeta.

In 1912, a suit like this would have been worn either with a grand broad-brimmed hat or the smaller "cloche" hats that were beginning to become very fashionable.
