Inspired by a recent show in LA of 18th century finery, a client commissioned me to make him a coat similar to the one shown in the LA County Museum of Art's show.. The Red Hunting Jacket is made of fine red wool, lined with a cotton/rayon blend of matching red material. Fabulous buttons accentuate the cut and styling.
This style of coat-dress was called a joseph or riding coat (borrowed in French as redingote), usually of unadorned or simply trimmed woolen fabric, with full-length, tight sleeves and a broad collar with lapels or revers. The redingote was later worn as an overcoat with the light-weight chemise dress.
