Men's Regency Coat

From the seller:

Extremely rare menswear from the early 1800s. Fantastic olive green boiled wool jacket with printed silk lining. Circa 1820. M shaped notch in lapel indicates age. Double breasted at waist, silk covered buttons on either side up to neckline to button from either side. Missing one button above waist, wear to lowest buttons...buttons hidden by lapels are in great shape! Missing buttons at sleeve cuffs. Lined in a gorgeous cotton, tails lined in a deep olive green silk. Some overall wear, a few moth holes.....interior lining needs re-sewn at some seams, left to purchaser to restore as they see fit. A few tears in lining of tails. Very solid and wearable condition.

16" shoulders, 39" chest, 30" waist, 39" long to tails, 19" long to waist, 27" sleeves

From Me:

I swear, this looks like it came straight out of a fashion plate from 1826!
