The sitter in this photograph is a Member of Parliament, and is shown wearing formal business dress of the 1900s. He is wearing a jacket, waistcoat, high starched 'winged' collar, and sports a fashionable curled moustache. 

Though male fashions did not change as rapidly as women's, his waistcoat is fastened lower on the chest than was fashionable in the 1890s.
