#1531-The 1830 Civilian Double Breasted Tailcoat

Features the collar and cuffs in fabric that matches the coat body. A harmonizing velvet color can be used on the collar and cuffs, if desired. During the 1830s to 1850s, double breasted coats were most common. Our reproduction features wide lapels with a notched high rolling collar and narrow half and half sleeves with gathered (slightly "puffy") sleeve caps and narrow shoulders- fashion style typical of the day for men. Functional split cuffs close with two buttons. One inside breast pocket. Exterior pockets are available on the back of the skirt- see picture enlargement. If this option is chosen, the back inside lining pockets are dropped.

Made in the USA!

Two button placement styles are available- #1531-4 has four buttons which close the front. Four buttons on the left side are for decoration. The #1531-5 design has three buttons which actually close the front and 2 extra false decorative buttonholes on the lapel. A fourth button is added to the front for decoration on each side. Both these styles carried over into the 1850s when collars became smaller and shorter; sleeves and shoulders wider and skirt tail a little shorter.

All tail coats are custom made for each individual order- allow 6 weeks. Because custom orders are not returnable, please visit our measurements page, and submit with your order.
