Here, for sale, is an elegant Edwardian Black morning coat.  It has self-facing peaked lapels and fastens on a double button with a long shank to give more exposure to the waistcoat beneath. The button fixing is located higher above the waist in morning coats of this era as they were designed to be worn with high-waisted trousers. The cuffs are trimmed with a series of four buttons and there are two decorative buttons at the back.Edwardian Black Morning Coat

The coat is finely tailored, carefully fitted with three darts at the back, and the skirt has the traditional rounded and tapering cut. To assist in achieving the hourglass silhouette, quilted padding has been used, above the chest, shoulder blades etc. This also helps to create a visually appealing flair line from the tapering front to the tail. Edwardian Black Morning Coat

Modern, off-the-peg morning coats and suits just don’t hack it in this regard, as they are devoid of the design features incorporated specifically to achieve the standard of elegance demanded and expected during the early years of the 20th century.

The condition of this quality morning coat is extremely good. (Please note that any grey marks that appear on the photographs are due to the lighting and photographic process.)
