Here's an outfit I recently made. I finished it just in time to wear it at Fort Nisqually brigade encampment. I copied the pattern for the linen frock coat from an original 1850s wool frock in a friend's collection. The trousers and waistcoat are drafted from Devers, the trousers are a heavy linen and the waistcoat is wool. I also made the shirt, cravat and walking stick. The top hat is an original from 1900 which I got for 40$ at the local flea market.

This is great.  I love seeing more gentlemen in good civilian attire.

Looks great. And reminds me that I REALLY need to lose weight to look as dapper as you do in such a garment. Wink
