Dressed for an honest day’s work managing the printing press in town, our Bosworth Sack Coat gave him enough authority that he never had to get sullied up on the line. Despite the sweltering temperatures from the steam-operated press, he never showed his bare shirtsleeves on the job as occasionally a woman would drop by with a last-minute piece for the daily edition.

In the late 19th century, the frock coat fell out of favor for daywear. On-trend men began wearing the sack coat for business meetings and even less formal, after-hours events. Don’t let the name “sack” fool you into thinking the garment is loose, oversized or in any way boxy. Rather, the term was coined from “sacque cut,” in reference to the specific way the two-piece back is pieced and tailored together.

This particular sack coat is nicely fitted and fastens with four buttons, common for the era. 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. Fully lined.

Body is 25% wool, 35% polyester, and 40% acrylic. Full lining is 100% acetate. Imported. Dry clean only. Available in men’s sizes 36 - 52.

Part of our Bosworth Collection.

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.
