From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Luis Francisco de la Cerda (later Duke of Medinacelli) in a red justacorps with horizontal pockets and lavish decoration.

A justacorps or justaucorps is a garment worn in the latter 17th century and earlier 18th century. Of French origin, the justacorps was a knee-length coat, fitted to the waist and flared below, without a waist seam. It featured deep, turn-back cuffs and was worn over a long vest or waistcoat and breeches.

The justacorps was an aristocratic garment worn primarily by men, although some women wore the justacorps with a matching petticoat as a riding habit.[1]
