THIS IS A VERY RARE WOOL FRATERNAL FROCK COAT FROM THE 1890S . THE KNIGHTS TEMPLARS PURCHASED THEIR OWN FROCKS, AND THE FROCKS CAME FROM DIFFERENT MANUFACTURERS. SOME OF THE COATS WERE MADE BY THE AMES SWORD CO MILITARY AND SOCIETY GOODS, OTHERS ARE UNBRANDED OR MADE BY OTHER COMPANIES. THIS COAT WAS MADE BY IHLING BROS. EVERHARD CO. IN KALIMAZOO, MI. (THIS COMPANY WAS IN BUSINESS FROM 1869 TO 1995.)
WHITE ADD-ON COLLAR READS: “MADE IN ENGLAND. 100% COTTON.” ALSO: “ARROW,” “CLUETT, PEABODY CO. INC. U.S.A.”
ALSO: “MILITARY REGULAR. FOR SHIRT SIZE 16”
THE BACK OF THE BUTTONS ARE STAMPED WITH THE WORD “DEFIANCE”.
THERE ARE POCKETS IN THE BACK TAILS.
THERE IS ONE BUTTON MISSING ON ONE OF THE CUFFS.
THERE IS ONE REPAIR ON ONE SLEEVE TOWARD THE CUFF – IT LOOKS TO HAVE BEEN TORN SLIGHTLY AND REPAIRED WITH BLACK THREAD.

IT DOES RESEMBLE A CIVIL WAR CALVARY FROCK COAT, HOWEVER IT IS NEITHER A CIVIL WAR FROCK COAT OR A CIVIL WAR REPRODUCTION. THIS IS AN AUTHENTIC FRATERNAL FROCK COAT WORN BY KNIGHTS TEMPLARS IN THE LATE 1800's AND EARLY 1900's. THE DESIGN ONLY RESEMBLES THE CIVIL WAR FROCK COATS AS THEY WERE MADE BY THE COMPANIES THAT MADE THE UNIFORMS FOR THE CIVIL WAR.
WE HAVE HEARD THE VALUES OF CIVIL WAR REPRODUCTIONS MADE DURING THE EARLY 1900's ARE VALUED AROUND $1000
THIS FRATERNAL FROCK COAT IS AN EXCELLENT ADDITION FOR ANY COLLECTOR OR FOR USE AS REINACTMENT CLOTHES.
THIS WOULD ALSO SERVE TO MAKE A BEAUTIFUL ADDITION TO ANY STEAMPUNK WARDROBE.

Chest: 40-42
