Over his crimson cloth of gold doublet and breeches Ludovick Stuart wears a luxurious nightgown together with an embroidered nightcap. Wearing these items simultaneously clearly indicates the nightgown and nightcap were not reserved solely for informal occasions or for wearing at night. The nightcap is apparently worn with a second lace-trimmed one beneath with the lace turned up around the brim.
