1765 British silk coat at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York - I deliberately chose the back view of this coat as opposed to the front view (although both look nice), because I wanted to show off the pleats that would have made the flared bottom commonly seen in mens clothes of the period.  I actually prefer the simple but closely-tailored British style to its more elaborate French counterpart.  How about you?
