Emerson Frock Coat - Brown Herringbone Tweed

Another fine product

Item: 006987



If you are in want of better work (or a better wife), our Emerson Frock Coat transforms any man into the catch of the year. Distinguished, dashing, and bound to get the job done; the perfect hire for your Victorian-inspired wardrobe.

Before the shorter, boxy jacket of the “sack” suit (still being worn today), the frock coat was the standard silhouette for men. Longer and seamed at the waist, our vintage-look coat features brown herringbone fabric, three button front, a notched lapel and intricate detailing on the back. Necessities can be kept at hand in the interior breast pocket.

Herringbone tweed fabric is 25% wool, 40% acrylic, and 35% polyester with a full acetate lining. Imported. Dry Clean Only. Available in sizes 38-52.

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.

Nice fabric, great style
I loved this coat when I first saw it on HE modeled with some trousers I was interested in. While I tend only to purchase natural fiber fabrics, I was very pleased with the look and feel of this blend! I was especially happy that it is a lighter/medium weight fabric than it may appear in the photos. But it's not an inexpensive feeling lightness -- it has a very nice hand. I already have long coats for cold weather wearing here in the PNW, so this one is absolutely perfect for spring, and even summer and fall. I'll be wearing it a lot! This coat is nicely constructed, and will likely hold up for my lifetime. The only negative is the plastic buttons. For me, they detract from the otherwise elegant look of this coat, but the price point for such a fine garment was very reasonable. I did replace them with some nice leather buttons, which likely would have added a lot to the shipped price, but make a big difference in the overall effect.

The size is a little small but that's OK because I wear it in lieu of a jacket and wear it open. If I was going to wear it as an overcoat I would order a larger size. Light weight for southern living.

Vented frock coat
Nice length . It is vented which was not in the description. Shoulder were too big for a size 38 so have had them altered at $ 35.00 expense. Col Bob

Very Nice Coat
I really like the Emerson Frock Coat. I usually stick to 100% cotton or wool, but this coat is a very nice blend. The material is soft and comfortable and it has the weight of an average sports coat. It seems to be the same material as the tweed Inverness coat. The flap pockets on the front are functional, not just for show. The detailing is solid. All around, this is a nice, well made Frock coat. I am delighted to have added it to my collection.

Frock coat
Coat is well made, fits properly and looks great on. The only negative I might offer is that the nap of the lapel doesn’t seem to lie flat. It may be tailored incorrectly but it might just need a good pressing. I haven’t had a chance to sort it out yet. At any rate good value for the money spent.
