From the museum curator: The long tight sleeves, puffed and padded at the shoulder, and thickly padded chest seen here are characteristic of fashionable men’s coats in the late 1820s. The double row of buttons accentuates the wide shoulders and narrow waist.
This type of cut-away coat remained formal daywear for men until the 1850s1828-1830 ca. Gentleman's Brown Wool Tailcoat, British. #Regency #Fashion Click To Tweet
