Because men are boring and to preoccupied with not seeming effeminate I guess. The elaborate Swedish Ceremonial Costume made out of silk and heavily embroidered with silver thread was last used at the coronation of Oscar I on 28 September 1844. It was probably discontinued because of the changes to men's fashion that occurred during the mid-1800s. It got increasingly simpler and more like the dark suits of today.

The male courtiers still wear the different male versions of the court dress during Royal ceremonies and on gala occasions.

Wonderful photo of the State Opening of Swedish Parliament from 1956.
Queen Louise, Princess Sibilla with her daughters Princesses Margaretha and Brigitta wearing the State Robes.
Less than 20 years later these became a relic of the past like so much.
