A Duke's Attire.

In the Druce case remarkable details were given as to the apparel of the late Duke of Portland. His eccentric Grace always, it appears, ordered three frock coats to every suit. When the weather was hot he wore one only; when it was a little less hot, two; and when it was cool, all three. Besides these he always kept three greatcoats in wear, so that when winter came on he wore three frock coats and one great coat; asĀ it advanced three frock coats and two great coats; while, when there was a real frost, he turned out in all the six.
