Lingwood London Cambridge Eton Tailcoat Morning Coat Mens Size 44
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a tailcoat made by venerable Jermyn Street London tailor New & Lingwood. The company was originally formed in 1865 to serve the scholars of Eton, the most famous of English public (private) schools and has continued to do so ever since. Aside from supplying Eton, New & Lingwood is both a bespoke and ready-to-wear tailor to the general public.
This tailcoat is suitable for “morning dress”. It is an off the rack piece and sized as a 44. A label on the interior identifies the lining as being made of 100% polyester, but there is no content label for the shell - I think that it is a wool and mohair blend, but I can’t be certain. In any case, this is obviously an excellent quality piece, as one would expect from New & Lingwood.
Sizing: As mentioned, size 44 is indicated, but please rely on the following measurements for fit (compare measurement with a similar jacket/tailcoat that you presently own or to your own body measurements, taking the cut of the garment into account):
Shoulders: 19” across from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeves: 26” from the shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeve inseam: 18”
Chest: 47” around, taken under the arms
Waist: 44” around
Overall length: 45 1/2” down the back, measured flat
Condition: It is in excellent condition with no wear, tear or staining - this tailcoat looks to have seen very little use.
This is a quality tailcoat by a respected London tailor - wonderful for a wedding or other formal occasion!
