The Prince Albert Frock Coat


 

Through­out the Vic­to­rian era and into the Edwar­dian era, the double-breasted Prince Albert frock coat dom­i­nated the gentleman’s daily cos­tume as the most dig­ni­fied of all gentlemen’s attire.  Though it sur­vived well into the first quar­ter of the 20th cen­tury, it pri­mar­ily trans­formed into a cer­e­mo­nial out­fit of the states­man, politi­cian and non-conformist clergyman.
The model shown below is a 20th cen­tury Edwar­dian style, button-3/one show fea­tur­ing corded silk lapels, stoted lapel revers, made of worsted wool/cashmere blend. The lin­ing is quilted Bem­berg, and fea­tures hid­den rear pleat pock­ets. The gar­ment is fin­ished by hand with silk thread.  Com­monly accom­pa­nied with plain-top trousers and sin­gle or d.b. waistcoat.
