Custom Tailcoats for Weddings and Events

We make custom tailcoats.

Classic 1930s, Edwardian, Steampunk, a bit retro, a bit modern.

Just let us know what you are looking for and we will start sketching and putting fabrics together.

Our complete suits are muslin fit.

This means that we mail you a mock-up of the pieces sewn in cotton so that you can try them on before we make the final garments.

You send us a pic of yourself wearing the muslins and we alter the patterns to get just the right fit and look.Tailcoat Wedding Picture

The pics show some of our most recent outfits.

The pictures of the elephant grey tailcoat show a complete outfit that we made.

The tailcoat is a classic open front style with silk shantung lapels that add a beautiful sheen to the look.

The vest is double-breasted and made from a silk brocade to coordinate with the wedding dress and the hat is a completely handsewn wool and silk buckram and wire frame piece that we made.

Each piece is uniquely designed and individually made-to-measure.

This means that we can design something exactly in your style with all of the right details to match the look you are going for.

The pants are made without a front crease for a slim Victorian look.

The black tailcoats show two different versions of our classic open front tailcoats.

One was made for a 1930s style wedding.

This tailcoat has a pointed hem and wide lapels made from gorgeous silk grosgrain.

It is shown with a handmade backless white cotton pique vest, a bibbed detachable collar white pique shirt, and bowtie.

Chocolate Brown TailcoatThe other black tailcoat has smaller peak lapels, also made from silk grosgrain, and a straight cut hem for a look that is both Edwardian and very modern.

The chocolate brown tailcoat is cut from a wool gabardine with wide grosgrain lapels, also in chocolate, brass buttons, and a silk duppioni lining.

The pants are in a Victorian style with a fishtail and back belt.

The grey pinstripe military tailcoat was made for a steampunk wedding.

It is cut from a gorgeous wool flannel and shown with a matching Wellington style top hat.

We also made the boy’s vests and pants that are shown in the wedding pictures.

The navy blue tailcoat (shown with a seersucker vest) shows another version of our popular military tails.

We can do many types of military tailcoats.

So just contact us if you would like to see more ideas in this vein.

The final pics show a black lambskin tailcoat with embossed cuffs and side laces.

If you are thinking about ordering a tailcoat or complete ensemble, just contact us ( so that we can talk about your project and start getting together fabrics to mail to you.

If you aren’t sure quite which details you like, just tell us a bit about yourself and the events that you will attend and we will start sketching.
