PostSubject: The gift of clothing was eliminated for women beginning in 1   Sun Aug 21, 2011 6:18 pm

The gift of clothing was eliminated for women beginning in 1724, as the recipients immediately tried on the gifts and exchanged ill-fitting ones with each other, a practice thought unseemly in a church. The women were instead given 35 shillings (decimalised as 1.75).[25] For men, the clothing gift was replaced by woollen cloth that year.[26] Men continued to be given cloth until 1883, when royal officials realised that many of the recipients were too poor to have the cloth made into garments and were instead selling it. Men were given 45 shillings (decimalised as 2.25) in lieu of the cloth, an amount increased in 1973 to 3 for both men and women.[25]
