Re: Which (Chasidic?) group do the clothes indicate, if any #austria-czech #galicia

The white "over pants", that are described, appear to be a "tallit katan", a (small tallis), worn by religious men. You can observe the tzitzit hanging down in the photo. It might also help to know from what city the family lived, as different chassidic sects were prominent in different cities. Is the man's hat symbolic of a particular group?  I've never seen that type hat as a religious symbol. I think that they just got dressed up for a formal photo.
