Civilian Tails Coat / Tailcoat

Item Last Updated: Sunday, 30-Oct-2016 15:29:25 EDT

Civilain Tailscoat (Tail Coat) in Black, 19th Century (1800s) Men's Clothing
Victorian in Black
Civilain Tailscoat (Tail Coat) in Black (back View), 19th Century (1800s) Men's Clothing
Victorian - Back
     The Tailcoat needs very little introduction. It is probably one of the most impressive coats available. This cut-in tail coat was adopted for all dress occasions and by 1850's was long-bodied and sleek. As early as 1860 it was worn for formal evening dress. The basic principal of cutting a dress-coat had not changed since 1840, only variations in proportions. This coat is available in either single or double breasted version. Velvet trim can be added to the collar or collar and cuffs, if desired. The single breasted version is shown. Two cloth covered buttons are close the front and are supplied, but not sewn on.

    Because of the short waist length of this coat, if one wears a vest it will show at the bottom of the coat front. This is quite normal and is the reason why vests usually matched either the trousers or coat so that the vest would blend in and not create a "scene " at the bottom of the coat. Proper shirt for this coat is the Pleated Front Dress Shirt.

    Our civilian tails coat is made from quality lighter weight woolens than our military frockcoat.

    This REPRODUCTION Clothing item is Made in the USA. This a quality reproduction item made as close as is modernly possible. Sewing is done by machine to keep costs down (except where hand sewing is required) and most do not show externally. Some items offer hand sewing on exposed stitching (such as buttonholes) for an additional cost.

    Pictures of the item on this page are pictures of the item we sold. All pictures of items we sell are Copyrighted, either by us or our supplier of the item.

    This is not a costume that is made using modern construction or components that did not exist during the time of its original usage (IE: zippers, etc.). Beware of fakes, especially ones using images stolen from this site (Copyright Infringement).

    Periods: The style of these coats changed over time, mostly in the collar, sleeve and body fit.

       1800/1816-1830: This has the stand and fall collar, it is cut narrower across the shoulders, a smaller sleeve hole, a more of a tubular sleeve and a more tailored body. When made correctly it is much less comfortable than the 1830 and later coats. We currently do not offer this period of coat. If you are interested, call is to talk about it.

       1830-1850 (Dickens and more): This has the rise and fall collar, it is cut narrower across the shoulders, a smaller sleeve hole, a more of a tubular sleeve and a more tailored body. When made correctly it is much less comfortable than the 1850 and later coats. Because most people do not like the true period cut/fit, we modify it somewhat in the body, shoulder and sleeve hole fit to make it more acceptable to modern taste. It is in between the American Civil War fit and the correct earlier fit.

       1850 On (Victorian: Civil War / Old West): This is our standard coat. There were style changes to this coat over time, mostly in the collar and lapels. Sometimes there were wide collars and sometimes narrow collars. We cannot cater to the various changes, so we only make the version shown. It has a somewhat wide collar and is most appropriate for 1850 through 1900.

Civilian Vests (Shawl Collar and Notched Collar)

Item Last Updated: Sunday, 30-Oct-2016 15:29:25 EDT

Civilain Double Breasted Shawl Collar Vest, 19th Century (1800s) Men's Clothing
    The Waistcoat (vest) was single or double breasted, with or without collars and revers and usually waist length. They were usually in rich materials, plain or patterned, often brightly colored. By 1860, for formal wear, were usually lighter in color and fabric. For evening wear were always white or black. Black was correct formal wear from 1860's to the end of the 1880's. CIVILIAN VESTS were quite commonly worn by the enlisted men on both sides of the conflict. The vests were usually brought from home or procured locally. The vest features two front pockets.

    The SHAWL COLLAR VEST has a laydown collar style. Five cloth button front closure, the back is adjustable by means of a belt and buckle. Also available in Double Breasted version. The Partial Collar stops at the shoulder seams, while the Full Collar goes all the way around the neck.

    The NOTCHED COLLAR VEST has a seven cloth button button front closure. This vest can also be made in the military wools also.

    Our civilian vest is made from quality lighter weight woolens, our military woolens and also corduroy.

Civilian Cotton and Wool Trousers / Pants (1850s on)

Item Last Updated: Sunday, 30-Oct-2016 15:29:25 EDT

Civilian Trousers / Pants
Grey Stripe Wool
No longer available
    Our 1858 - 1889 Civilian style trousers feature a slightly different cut than the military trousers and different wools and fabrics are used. They come standard with side seam pockets. Mule Ear Pockets are available as an extra cost item. A right hand waistline watch pocket can be added as an option. Civilian trousers make an excellent Confederate Late War impression also.

    Usually in a civilian outfit (but not always), the vest and trousers will be made of the same wool, while the coat is a harmonizing color. Pewter buttons for fly and suspenders are supplied, but not sewn on. ONE front suspender button per side is standard. Select two front suspender buttons per side if desired.

    Period trousers also have a 1" higher rise than today's blue jeans and should be worn quite loose. The legs are left un-hemmed so that you can hem them the length that you want.

    The 1890's  Trousers were cut in the "peg top" style, meaning the legs were tapered from the crotch to the ankle.  Button fly, side seam front pockets and a single back right hip pocket are standard. Suspenders are still worn with these trousers, as belt loops were not added to civilian men's trousers until the 1920s.  Flat front is standard, with  pleated front offered as an option.

Also, an adjusting belt may be added to the back of the trousers.

    This REPRODUCTION Clothing item is Made in the USA. This a quality reproduction item made as close as is modernly possible. Sewing is done by machine to keep costs down (except where hand sewing is required) and most do not show externally. Some items offer hand sewing on exposed stitching (such as buttonholes) for an additional cost.
