Many people assume that, throughout history, men’s fashion didn’t change very much. After all, today’s men have been wearing the very same shirts, jackets, coats, and even shoes as those of past eras, with only small details changing. But modern menswear actually got its start hundreds of years ago during the Victorian era.
The Victorian era (also referred to as the Edwardian era) set in motion so many fashion trends. Between the years of 1830 and 1910, Victorian men around the world adopted a new style of dress popular in the United Kingdom and every other area within the British Empire. Unlike years past, the years of the Victorian period saw huge changes in fashion. Thanks to the industrial revolution happening in England, clothing was suddenly available in mass quantities — and it was mass produced for the first time! New sewing machines allowed clothing to be made faster and more affordably, and new fashion magazines taught men the latest high fashion trends they needed to don.
For the first time, high-class and middle-class men could wear the very same fashions and styles. And starting in the 1840s, men’s clothing moved away from breeches, wigs, and decorated vests. Instead, the frock coat became the new norm. Every man wore a calf-length frock coat during this time period, acting as a formal piece of outwear perfect for any occasion. A predecessor to today’s three-piece suit, the Victorian frock coat was worn over a collared shirt and a waistcoat or vest. No man of any age, any class, or any profession went without his frock coat when leaving home.
An exclusive piece in our Heritage Costumes collection of historical clothing, this Victorian era men’s frock coat is authentic to the men’s attire of 19th century in Europe and America. Your costume includes a single fully lined black frock coat. The frock coat features matching velvet lapels to accentuate style and the classic Victorian look. Pair this Victorian frock coat with our wide selection of Victorian-era clothing pieces, accessories, and added details to create your very own personalized period costume.
This high-quality costume men’s Victorian frock coat can be used for a period ball, historical reenactment, masquerade, or simply a fun day of experiencing life during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Made with pride and care right in the United States, this men’s Victorian frock coat is built to last.
