MEN’S VINTAGE EDWARDIAN FROCK COAT c1910

Edwardian Frock Coat

Your chance to own and wear an extremely rare example of a genuine Edwardian frock coat ~ and a handsome example it is too!

Whilst the majority of coats at this time were typically black, this gentleman’s frock coat, as the photographs show, is an unusual and very distinctive blue-grey tone. The black velvet lapels, which are generously cut, form a striking contrast, suggesting that whoever commissioned this piece had a sound grasp of what constituted haute couture.

The design and cut of this unique garment underlines the oft quoted expression, ‘they don’t make them like this anymore’. The shoulders have a strong square outline, the back is neatly tucked and seamed to accentuate the fit, as well as being an integral part of the cosmetic appeal, and the pleated tail of the coat extends gracefully with a slightly decadent flair from the hip. The coat fastens on two mother-of-pearl faceted buttons, and two buttons, in the same style, punctuate the downward seams at the back as they flow from shoulder to hem. Lined throughout, with quilted sections, the interior of the coat is as sumptuous on the inside as it is elegant on the outside.

The entire ensemble spells sophistication with more than a hint of decadence. Think Mr Selfridge and Downton Abbey!

For its advanced years the condition of this charming coat has weathered well. However, there are some loose threads on the back seams which will need attention before the coat is pressed into service again (see photographs), some small age marks and some stitching to the lining.

Measurements (with garment laid flat)

(all measurements approximate, but taken carefully):

Underarm to Underarm: 20 ins {51cm}

Collar to Hem: 45 1/2 ins {115.5cm}

Shoulder Seam to Cuff: 25 ins {63.5cm}

Aficionados of vintage cannot help but appreciate the style and elegance of this authentic coat. Our mannequin has always been a bit of a dandy and couldn’t wait to don a winged collar shirt, Edwardian waistcoat, red silk cravat and cravat pin. If he can do it, so can you. The perfect addition to a true gentleman’s wardrobe, a must for those adventurous types who seek to address the dross and mediocrity of today’s dressed-down society and an excellent, authentic garment for theatrical productions and vintage events.
