Collection: Tailcoat

The late 18th century tailcoat was a significant piece of men’s fashion during that era, characterized by its high turned-down collar, narrow back, wide lapels, and exaggerated silhouette inspired by post-revolutionary France. This style of tailcoat was popular for both day and evening wear, reflecting a shift towards understated elegance and functionality suited for outdoor activities like riding and hunting. The coat typically featured somber colors such as black, navy, or green, with a cutaway front for riding comfort and tails divided into two coattails at the back. The trend of wearing tailcoats in the late 18th century was influenced by figures like Beau Brummell, known for setting fashion standards of the time.
