Starting about the 1950s, some Knight Commanders and Grand Commanders wanted a "modern" look with more comfort around the neck than the earlier 1880s standing collar version provided- so the open lapel frockcoat design was adopted by several Commanderies. Shown at left is the double breasted frockcoat with open lapel and laydown collar for Grand Commander which features 18 buttons on the front grouped in 3 sets of 3. Commanders have 9 buttons equally spaced on the front. Cuffs have 3 small buttons. Made using our 12 ounce black wool flannel with black cotton lining.
A deluxe 16 ounce black wool and black polished cotton lining are available at extra cost. Domed style buttons are 7/8" covered with black ribbed silk. Back skirt pockets with bi-point flap are included. One inside pocket. Two sword belt hooks at the waist. Ready for you to install your group's various sleeve insignia and chest badges. Made in the USA!
