The Prince Albert Frock Coat
Edwardian Signature Collection
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.
