I'm in need of some extra money to work on my car, so I must part with my newly made frock coat.
Contract Frock is 100% made by me. I used period methods and construction while making it. I rounded up photos of originals to look at, so not one detail would be missed. I bought the dark blue wool kersey from WW&Co. so its good stuff. Lots of hand work!
Features: Black corded silk button holes, wool(alpaca like) quilted breast lining, brown polished cotton tail pockets, folded cloth sky blue piping, Two of the facings have a brighter shade of blue kersey to represent war time production, pieced tails, nine button front, functioning cuffs, muslin lined sleeves, earlier war 2” tall collar, hooks and eyes at the collar and tails.
I took no short cuts at all on this coat, as I made it for myself. I wore it once for a few hours at a ball and it shows no sign of use. It is a size 42-44(sung 44). I’ll accept money orders, and Paypal (must add the 3% for their fee). If you have any questions or need pictures please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org I’d like to get $380 for it.
