English: A satirical 1796 contrast between old 16th-century and cutting-edge Directoire clothing styles: "TOO MUCH and TOO LITTLE, or Summer Cloathing for 1556 & 1796", a caricature engraved by Isaac Cruikshank after a drawing by George M. Woodward, published February 8th 1796. For a smaller scan of an untinted version of this same print, see Image:Toomuch-1556_Toolittle-1796_caricature-unc.png. Scanned by H. Churchyard.

In 1796, the strongly neoclassically-influenced styles satirized on the right were still very new in England. Notice the single vertical feather springing from the hair of the 1796 woman.

The portraits on the wall behind the two ladies show corresponding male clothing styles for the two eras.
