The Cutaway Coat, also known as a Morning Suit or Swallowtail Coat, vied with the Frock for popularity. With its curved front panel, this elegant choice is far less bulky than the Frock and excellent for all day comfort and style.
History books first date the fashionable cutaway coat style to the pre-1830s as a staple of equestrian attire. The coat became popular daywear during the mid 19th century and was seen as late as 1919 when Woodrow Wilson showed up to sign the treaty of Versailles wearing a cutaway.
In modern times, Cutaways are used for very formal events, especially weddings, and as a alternative to a modern tuxedo coat.
We are pleased to offer a broad selection of vintage cutaway coats, and hope you will contact us if you have any additional questions.
