Our selection of victorian coats covers the full range of period-correct styles, from rustic to fancy to formal. Here is a brief overview.
In the mid to late 19th century, men were wearing Frock coats and double-breasted Frock coats as a standard "uniform" for more formal daywear. As the era progressed, the shorter, less structured sack coat stepped onto the scene, often spotted in a variety of plaids, checks and tweed. The Cutaway coat became the coat of choice for day wear by businessmen and gentleman. For formal events, the distinctive Tailcoat and Tuxedo Coat were the benchmark for elegance and good breeding, and no victorian gentleman would be without a proper smoking jacket for nights in the parlor.
