1800 - 1820 Men's M-Notch and Roll Collar Tailcoat Pattern
1800 - 1820 Men's M-Notch and Roll Collar Tailcoat Pattern

CWM01 - 1800 - 1820 Men's M-Notch and Roll Collar Tailcoat Pattern. Sizes Medium-XL included. This tailcoat pattern is a well made civilian tailcoat pattern specific to the first two decades of the 19th century. The pattern comes with three sizes included: Medium, Large and XLarge. Great for Regency Living History. Excellent for Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility and other Regency era impressions. Beau Brummell wore a Regency period dress coat as daytime dress. The coat is able to close and the tails are knee length. Beau Brummell set the fashion for dandyism in British society from the mid-1790s, which was characterized by immaculate personal cleanliness, immaculate linen shirts with high collars, perfectly tied cravats, and exquisitely tailored plain dark coats (contrasting in many respects with the "maccaroni" of the earlier eighteenth century). Brummell abandoned his wig and cut his hair short in a Roman fashion dubbed la Brutus, echoing the fashion for all things classical seen in women's wear of this period. He also led the move from breeches to snugly-tailored pantaloons or trousers, often light-colored for day and dark for evening, based on working-class clothing adopted by all classes in France in the wake of the Revolution. A tailcoat is a coat with the front of the skirt cut away, so as to leave only the rear section of the skirt, known as the tails. The historical reason coats were cut this way was to make it easier for the wearer to ride a horse, but over the years tailcoats of varying types have evolved into forms of formal dress for both day and evening wear. Although there are several different types of tailcoat, the term tailcoat is popularly taken to be synonymous with the type of dress coat still worn today in the evening with white tie. This dress coat, one of the two main surviving tailcoats, is a dark evening coat with a squarely cut away front. The other one is the morning coat (or cutaway in American English), which is cut away at the front in a gradual taper. (Wikipedia).
