Cotton velvet spread rapidly after about the 1750s (and possibly much earlier) and were known as "Manchester goods". Manchester velvets were used in the 18th century for men's waistcoats, jackets and breeches. Velvets were also used for cuffs, collars and facings on coats and for women's shoes. In the early 19th century velvet was used for women's spencer. For example in the 1775 Connecticut Gazette an ad included, "Broke out of the Goal in New-London . . .  on suspicion of having robbed the Store . . .  Had on . . .  brown velvet breeches" cited in personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Brown linen thread matches this fabric as will brown quilter's thread for sewing button holes.
