Officer's "justaucorps" or coat 1695-1715
Early 18th century officer's coat or justaucorps, faithfully copied from an original specimen still preserved in the Victoria & Albert museum that I was allowed to examine, and whose pattern is reproduced in N. Waugh's "The cut of men's clothes". This style of coat with buttonholes worked in metal thread was common to both civilian and military attire, and can be made in any colour combination for most European armies. Lined with twill silk or taffeta, cuffs faced with same or contrasting colour cloth.
Available on measure only.
