  The Boat (Diag. LVI.), the Marquise, 
Porkpie (Diag. LVII.), and many other shapes, 
when built on tailor principles, severe lines, 
absence of trimming, or only trimmed in the 
simplest or stiffest form, may all be classed with 
the ready-to-wear, and as such can be properly 
worn in the morning, and when shopping, and 
on all other occasions when the costume is in 
keeping, or tailor-built.
