Sable Brushed Cotton Sack Coat

Sable Brushed Cotton Sack Coat

Item: 004971



Our Sable Sack Coat has your back for nearly every 19th century situation. Rewind to a bygone era and show off what was then the latest in men’s fashion. This Historical Emporium exclusive in rich brown is perfect for whatever the day holds, except perhaps a wedding, funeral or fancy social affair.

Wondering about the backstory? The ‘sack coat’ gained popularity over the longer and dressier frock coat and by the 1870s had become the regulation style for conducting business and casual recreational pursuits. In a way, the sack coat was a wearable rebellion against the formal and fussy traditions of the time.

Our version, highlighting all the style elements of the late 19th century, features a soft, brushed-cotton in sable brown finish and with a high-button front that was often worn fastened just at the top to let a vest show through below. Other notable design details include a notched collar, unvented back (to maintain sleek silhouette), decorative seaming and 3 buttons at each cuff. There are no outer pockets, but necessities may be stashed in the handy interior breast pocket. There’s also a hidden “ticket” pocket for concealing tickets, cash or other small valuables.

Part of our matched Sable Collection.

Fashioned with a 100% cotton shell and 100% polyester lining. Imported. Recommend Dry Cleaning. Available in sizes 38 - 52.

Note: This Sack Coat is a Slim Fit. If you wish to wear this coat buttoned up, or your belly is larger than your chest, we recommend going up one size.

Sizing Notes
Our coats are made with typical American sizing, meaning your chest measurement (in inches) is the size you should choose.
To measure your chest: Raise your arms slightly and measure just under your arms. Be sure to cross over the shoulder blades and the fullest part of the chest. If your belly measures larger than your chest, use your belly measurement for coat size.
Longs: If indicated in the selection list (e.g. 46L,) long sizes may also be available. Longs are approximately 2" longer in the back and sleeves.

Sable Brushed Cotton Sack Coat
Love this coat, fits like it was hand tailored for me. The price is exceptional, and the delivery was prompt. Before ordering, any questions I had were answered to my satisfaction. This coat will add to my living history presentations for both the late 1800's and early 1900's. I will be a return customer.

arm length TOO Short
This is a great coat, but I ordered in 42 and reordered in 44 and STILL the arm at least 1" too short.

Sable "brown" sack coat
This is a nice, well made, heavy coat; not a cheap costume piece. Ordered a size 50 to fit my 49 inch chest size for a perfect fit! The sleeves are always too long for me by about an inch and need hemming. I wear these coats all the time and just wish they were available in additional colors like a navy blue or burgundy and maybe in some lighter, summer weather fabrics !

Really Nice
I did find this jacket rather large for the size indicated... I had to have mine tailored, although I ordered the size of my chest measurement (38), it was very roomy. Perhaps best for a broad-shouldered gentleman! After some adjustments, it is a wonderful coat, Victorian, but subtle enough to wear every day with modern clothes too. Very heavy fabric, as others have indicated... suited to cool weather. Many thanks for this unique addition to my wardrobe!

Sable Brushed Cotton Sack Coat
The product is very heavy, but I have no doubt that it is authentic. I don't know how those people lived. I had to send it back because it was too large, and I am just waiting for one to come in in my size.
