With less than a month to go before Successionville, I decided I really wanted a CS frock coat based on a particular pattern found in a museum. Other vendors I contacted said they could supply me with a frock coat only based upon their house patterns, and it would take 2-6 months to deliver.

I contacted Nick Sekela at Historic Clothiers and not only did he agree to have it done for me in time for the event but he also agreed to pattern it off of the photos I sent him. I confirmed the order on 24 October and it arrived today, just in time for me to load it in the car for the drive to Charleston.

The work is exactly what you would expect from Mr Sekela; impeccable tailoring and attention to all the details. The original had a lining made from multiple fabrics, and so does my copy.

Phenomenal service from the best tailor in the business. This consumer couldn't ask for more.
