Unique hand made and designed ornate tuxedo style blue frock coat. The body of the coat is made of a medium weight heavily brocaded midnight blue matelasse fabric with silver thread running throughout. Embellishments applied to lapels and fronts are in deep black velvet and paned in ice blue satin, hand made in all original serpentine designs. The fold over collar and large pointed cuffs are in a black faux leather with decorative stitching in black and silver thread and backed in dark blue velvet. Channel seams are used at the back and shoulders in a black faux leather. The back of the coat is finished in black brocade box pleats on either side of the slitted back, below a sharp V seam. Large silver buttons finish the back with a removable button plaquard in black faux leather and silver brocade. The cut away tuxedo style front is closed by 3 ornate silver clasps and ends in highly decorative hatchet shaped faux leather and velvet embellishments. It can be worn either open or closed. It is fully lined in black satin with a concealed breast pocket hidden in the seam. I have reinforced the yoke (neck and shoulders) as this is the first place to wear out on coat linings. This coat has a very nice tailored look is well made and is suitable for everyday use as well as a costume. I've tried to take pictures in differing lights to show the natural color variations of the fabrics, indoors and outdoor sun, as the most of the velvets and satins have some color changes and shadings in the various light sources. If you have any questions or comments please ask, I always appreciate any input. Thanks very much for looking.
