Jubon - Vest, ca. 1770, Madrid. Blue silk and taffeta silk in ivory. With neck placket and long sleeves and narrow. The back ends in its lower edge in a queue. Decorated with a silk cord application and metallic threads in gold silk braid. Majismo costume, part of the movement in late 18thC Spanish clothing away from the influence of the French and towards a more Spanish style of clothing. 

For those of you that don’t know, jubón simply means “doublet” in Spanish!
