Vintage 1920s Mens Cutaway Frock Coat Morning Coat Sz M L


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This product is unavailable

This is a vintage custom tailored mens morning coat that came out of an old trunk - some refer to this type of tailcoat as a formal cutaway frock coat.  There had been woven striped pants with it, but these were in disrepair, so discarded. It dates most likely to the 1920s era, perhaps a bit earlier.  It is made of a very good quality charcoal grey, almost black, wool with padded shoulders, a chest pocket, peaked lapels and a single link button closure.  It is edged in silk at the lapels, the opening, the pocket and down the lower back.  There are two buttons at the back and each cuff has three buttons.  The interior of this morning coat is lined in a twill fabric, possibly rayon, but maybe silk, I’m not sure.  This morning coat is expertly hand tailored - please note the close-up of the stitching at the sleeve lining.  There are no labels and please note that no pants are included.     

Sizing: The morning coat should fit a medium to large size, perhaps a modern size 42, but please rely on the following measurements for fit, comparing them to another morning coat that you may own or your body measurements, allowing some room for fit:

Shoulders: 20 3/4” across seam-to-seam

Sleeves: 24 1/2” long

Sleeve Inseam: 17 3/4” long

Chest: 47 1/2” around, taken under the arms

Waist: 42” around

Overall length: 46“ to the bottom, measured flat at the back

Condition:  It is in very clean condition with no pronounced wear, tear, holes, nibbles, stains or odours.  

This is a beautifully tailored morning coat - wonderful style!
