Unique hand made and highly ornate floor length crimson frock coat. The body of the coat is made of a heavyweight crushed blood red velvet. The embellishments for this coat have a lightning and flames look and are in black velvet and are applied to the sleeves and fronts. The notched lapels are matching black velvet with decorative silver stitching. The oversized fold over collar and pointed cuffs are in black velvet and paned in matching red velvet with silver stitching. Jagged black faux leather pauldrons paned in iridescent color change black/red satin are sculpted to the fit of the shoulders. The back of the coat has an intricate black faux leather applique,securely tacked down, and is finished in black hammered satin box pleats on either side of the slitted back, and large silver toggle buttons above the sharp V seam. The front is closed by large tarnished silver buttons and looks equally good worn open or closed. It is fully lined in black satin and I have reinforced the yoke (neck and shoulders) as this is the first place to wear out on coat linings. I've tried to take pictures in differing lights to show the natural color variations of the fabrics, indoors and outdoor sun, as the most of the velvets and satins have some color changes and shadings in the various light sources. If you have any questions or comments please ask, I always appreciate any input. Thanks very much for looking.
