Unusual costume piece: acquired from a collector of theatrical costumes. It is an exaggerated version of a coat for an Infantry Musician. Made of cotton with canvas interior to keep the shape. Gold ribbon and piping decoration and brass buttons. Likely made as theatrical piece in the 1920s/1930s.

Closes using hooks and eyes down front. All buttons are ornamental. Epaulettes have been removed. Inside one of the sleeves is the stamp of the tailor: P. LELOGEAIS tailleur 10 place des petits pères Paris.

As can be seen in the photos, there is internal and external discoloration and wear holes to the exterior and interior. Part of the ribbon are loose as is some of the stitching. There are tears under the armpit and repairs have been made in places.

Like most tailcoats, it is designed to buttoned up but can obviously be work loose. Measurements below are for item laid flat and buttoned:

Armpit to armpit: 19" 49cm
Shoulder to shoulder: 19" 49cm
Shoulder to cuff: 21" 54cm
Armpit to cuff: 17" 43cm
Length down back: 46" 107cm
Length down front: 19.5" 49cm

Thanks for visiting Cabinet de Merveilles!
