Jan Vermeer
Male Costume Colours

Please Note: these are Dutch paintings and while Holland was the fashion leader in the 1650s and the early 1660s, towards the end of the 1660s England and France developed their own fashion styles. It is safe though to turn to the Dutch paintings ion search of acceptable colours, because those would have been the same. All of the below images are details of paintings by Vermeer, from the 1650s to mid 1670.
