Bespoke Morning Coat

A black morning coat with matching black waistcoat is the most formal option. Considered slightly less formal, the bespoke morning coat can be worn in variant referred to as morning grey dress. Which has mid-grey matching morning coat, waistcoat, and trousers.

The name originated from the practice of gentlemen in the 19th century riding a horse in the morning. With a cutaway front, single breasted morning coat.

In the Edwardian era it took over in popularity from the frock coat as the standard daytime form of men’s full dress.

The traditional shaped English style of coat is still the most popular style and understandably so. To be honest, not much looks better than a well-cut suit with a clean chest. A  sharp defined shoulder line with a nicely shaped lapel leading down to the shaping into the waist. And a moderate flair given over the hips.

The loose material that shows itself at the waist needs shrinking away to ensure a good fit at the waist level. As already mentioned, manipulation plays a very important part in the production of a bespoke morning coat. The back has a brick tack. It forms a continuation of the the centre back seam.

Prices for a Desmond Merrion bespoke morning coat start at £3,600 ex VAT.
