Men's Gaberdine Ivory Steam Punk (Frock) Coat
Men's Gaberdine Ivory Steam Punk Coat.
Ivory Frock Coat made from Gaberdine (Gabardine is a tough, tightly woven fabric used to make suits, overcoats, trousers, uniforms, windbreakers, and other garments. The word gabardine has been used to refer to a "dress, covering" since the 1590s. It has been used to mean "closely woven cloth" since 1904.). The period is the early 19th Century.
"A frock coat is a man's coat characterised by a knee-length skirt (often cut just above the knee) all around the base, popular during the Victorian and Edwardian periods. The double-breasted style is sometimes called a Prince Albert (after the consort to Queen Victoria). The frock coat is a fitted, long-sleeved coat with a center vent at the back, and some features unusual in post-Victorian dress. These include the reverse collar and lapels, where the outer edge of the lapel is cut from a separate piece of cloth from the main body, and also a high degree of waist suppression, where the coat's diameter round the waist is much less than round the chest. This is achieved by a high horizontal waist seam with side bodies, which are extra panels of fabric above the waist used to pull in the naturally cylindrical drape (source wikipedia)
This Frock coat is an authentic replica and there is a lot of attention to detail.
Ideal for reenactments, plays, music festivals, gigs, weddings, funerals or just being fashionably anarchic!
