Goyesco bullfighter jackets from the tailor Justo Algaba.
Goyesco-style bullfighter costumes are worn during special bullfights.
The Goyesco suit was the suit worn in Madrid from the second half of the 18th century to the middle of the 19th century and was adopted by the upper classes copying it from popular suits, following in part the slogans of sobriety and populism exported throughout Europe by the French Revolution.
The majo or Goya man essentially wears a white shirt, a sash, a short buttoned jacket decorated with embroidery (or a vest); neckerchief matching the sash; tight pants and reaches below the knees, showing white leggings or stockings. He also wears a black embroidered hairnet on his head, topped by a tassel or “strawberry tree” at its end. It is complemented by the Castilian (or Spanish) cape and blanket, and different types of tricorn to adorn or protect the head.
