Livingston Brushed Cotton Frock Coat - Black

Frock Coat

Item: 006314



Distinguished for the day, our Livingston Brushed Cotton Frock Coat in Black is an indispensable garment in the wardrobe of a 19th century gentleman it would be reprehensible to go out without.

This black jacket features a slim fit with skirt that falls to the knee. Longer and seamed at the waist, our traditional frock coat features a notched lapel, a four button front, and intricate detailing on the back. Necessities can be kept at hand in the interior breast pocket. However, should you encounter an unsavory character in some back alley or less-traveled road, your valuables will stay hidden in two cleverly tucked-away tail pockets.

Fashioned with a 100% cotton shell and 100% polyester lining. Imported. Dry clean. Available in sizes 38-52. Part of our Livingston collection and available in different colors.

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.

The fabric is sturdy--essentially denim. Brushed, so with the soft hand of old denim, but with the stiffness of new denim. The fit is correct to slim--for a more casual fit, maybe order one size up. I'm not wholly happy with the seems on the shoulders--they don't lay quite right, but perhaps as the garment breaks in, the folds will relax into a more flattering lay. Still, overall, a very nice coat.

Wonderful coat, comfortable and well-made
As I mentioned in my review of the Livingston Black Brushed Cotton Vest (which I love), I am a professional carriage driver and I wanted some Victorian era clothing to help me look the part more. While this coat, like it's matching vest, does tend to attract horse hair rather well (which is remedied with the simple application of a lint-roller) I am absolutely in love with it. The fabric is high-quality, as is the stitching that holds it all together. I love the simple yet elegant design of the coat, as well as the handy inside chest pocket and the (very cleverly hidden) two inside tail pockets. These tail pockets were so cleverly hidden that my girlfriend and I couldn't seem to find them, though the wonderful customer service representative at Historical Emporium gladly pointed me right to their location inside the tails of the coat in the lining. This coat is also rather warm on a chilly night, but not so warm that I cannot wear it on the warmer days. I have a 43-inch chest, and I ordered this coat in a size 46. It fits me quite comfortably over my vest(s) and other attire. I would gladly recommend both the Historical Emporium and this frock coat to others!

Very Simple
This coat, (as I named the review) is very simple. The material has a very thick industrial feel. It's possible that some of the frock coats of that period were. There are no pockets at all on this coat. So with these two facts I could not use this one. This coat is more outfitted for western wear the period maybe the mid 1800's if you are using the coat for costume it would be fine.

Good quality
It feels and looks great. High quality build and material. My only issue is it feels a tad stiff in the torso area.

Soft & Elegant
I bought this for a formal civil war dance; the fabric is soft and the fit is good. Looking forward to the white tie affair.

Frock Coat
Very nice coat. I personally added more decorative, shiny, fancy buttons to make it pop more because that's what I wanted. The coat is great without doing that and it will keep you warm! I enjoy steampunk and this coat is very period accurate for what I was looking for. And believe me, I looked everywhere! I have no regrets and I will purchase more clothing from here in the future.
