All officers have small waists and wear with belts or sashes; they have bulging chests and wear high collars and narrow coat-tails. They all have tight sleeves, high padded shoulders with plumes or animal hair projecting from the helmet or large shako [a tall, cylindrical military hat] they wear. A Life Guards in the left background wears a pair of boots, wide at the top, that almost reaches his thigh. At right, an officer seen from behind [possibly the Duke of York?], wears the plumed hat of a field-marshal and walks is arm-in-arm with a tall thin officer.
