A "stock" was a more formal men's wear accessory for the mid 19th century. They were often black or white, made of silk, starched, and further reinforced to be stiff around the neck. With the chin forced up, the wearer was thought to look more important and formal. Stocks buckled or hooked up the back and sometimes had bows or ruffles attached to the front.
