Gentlemen’s evening tailcoat. This is a modern speed tailored garment in traditional evening style, for wearing at white tie events. It has somewhat theatrical styling, with wide lapels and higher sleeve heads than is usual. There is one external welt pocket and one internal pocket. The buttons are corded silk covered buttons.
The gentleman is large, with narrow sloping shoulders, so we drafted the pattern for him.
This is a Jolly Dicey project, jointly drafted and sewn by my partner Su and I.
The body of the coat is made from world’s finest 100% wool Barathea from Hainsworths, with lapels faced in wool satin. It is constructed using fusible hair canvas, cupro taffeta lining, and wool felt shoulder pads. The sleeves are lined with a silk and rayon mix twill satin.
Sip cocktails by the fire in faux fur, patterned silks, and more luxurious fabrics.
