Contessa Coats

PRICE: $115 (regular price $255). 

Probably our most popular design ever.  These have never been put on discount before, and possibly never will again.

Hooded Contessa coats are super-comfortable!  They’re especially cut to prevent binding at the sleeves and shoulders, even when you reach up or forward. The sleeves come to a point at the wrist and are generously sized, so even if you have larger biceps, you shouldn’t have a problem (contact me if you want to double-check sleeve size).

They come in Regular cup size *and* a Full Bust cup size.  If your bust is noticeably larger than the rest of you, you’ll love the Full Bust cut.

There’s a “surprise pleat” in the back, made from a contrasting or coordinating fabric, which opens up when you walk or bend to show a flash of colour (and also makes the hip fit more flexible).

Fitting 

You can adjust sizes by a couple of inches with the buckle straps, and pull in the waist several inches with the back lacings, so fit is somewhat flexible. 

Colours

Plain black coats are made from some kind of suiting or faux suede.  Black jacquards are made from an assorted combination of black-on-black textured or print fabric and plan black. Back lacing loops and “surprise pleat” fabrics vary between each item (usually but not always some kind of silver/black for the black coats, coppers or browns for the teal or brown coats, and neutrals or coordinating colours for the others).

Sizes 

The measurements given are for the actual coat itself, *not* your body, taken with the buckles done up to the middle hole of 3. Choose one that’s about the same size as you are at the waist (you need a little more ease at the chest) if you want a snug fit without any layering underneath.  Choose one that’s 2-3 inches larger than you if you want it to feel like a fitted jacket, and 4-6 inches larger than you for a looser and more coat-like fit that allows for layering for cooler weather.

Regency Jackets

PRICE: $88 (regular price $255; the sale price is below cost of materials). 

Inject a little Jane Austen/Bridgerton/Regency drama into your wardrobe with these head-turning jackets.  A Regency jacket can liven up plain dresses and elevate boring old T-shirts and jeans into a Right-Proper Outfit — and they’re amazingly comfortable.

The side panels and sleeves that have a little stretch so they don’t bind when you reach forward or up.  The biceps are generously cut, so even if sleeves are often tight on you, you shouldn’t have a problem (contact me if you want to double-check).

The skirt of the jacket is made with a series of rear pleats, so they flare out dramatically when you walk — and drape gracefully behind you if you’re on horseback!

The L and XL black ones are made from a textured black-on-black jacquard (pictured); the others are a combination of plain faux suedes and suitings.  Buttons and exact fabrics will vary, but basically be pretty similar to one another.

Fitting

Since the Regency jacket is open-fronted below the chest area, choose your size by your Rib cage and Full chest measurements (photos shown on roughly where to measure).  The rib cage looks best when quite fitted, but the full chest can have a couple inches wearing ease.

Sizes

I have one per colour per size; they’ll fit more snugly if you fall into the larger end of the range.  If your size is gone, it probably sold while during early viewing on Patreon.

Tailcoats

PRICE: $85 (originally $265)

Tailcoats make interesting alternatives to suit  or tuxedo jackets for dress-up events! 

They have split-tailed back, contrast cuffs and lapels, and are meant to be worn open to show off a vest underneath (Edmund or Bennett vests are best for this).  But you can also wear it buttoned closed if you wish. 

The body and tails are fully lined; the sleeves are unlined to keep them a bit cooler. 

You can wear a regular old button-down shirt with tailcoats, or accent the neckline with a tie-on jabot or neck ruffle (see separate sale post for these) if you want a more Victorian, Regency, or steampunk vibe.

This is a non-binary/straight-cut/traditionally menswear design, so if you have significant chest curvature, you will either need to bind flat, or go for a loose-fitting look.  Hip curvature isn’t critical, as the coat is only fitted to the waist and the tails are split.

Fitting

If you want to wear these closed in front, the measurements given are the actual dimensions of the garment, meaning you need to be about the same size or a bit smaller.  But these look best worn open to showcase a beautiful vest or shirt (especially ruffled), in which case you can be several inches larger than the numbers given.

  • Royal blue with black flocking (black satin lapels and cuffs): about 36 inches at the waist and 39 inches at the chest.  This fabric has a good deal of give, so you can be pretty much the same size as this, or even be an inch or so larger, and still wear it closed (or several inches larger if you wear it open)
  • True red wool suiting (black/gold/red bamboo silk brocade lapels and cuffs): about 35 inches at the waist and 39 inches at the chest.  Not quite as much give as the royal blue one, so these are your maximum measurements if you wear it closed (though you can be several inches larger if you intend to wear it open).
  • Teal faux suede (black/teal silk brocade lapels and cuffs): about 32 inches at the waist and 34 inches at the chest.  Fabric has very little give, so you either need to be smaller than this — or (much better!) wear it open over a shirt or vest, as shown, in which case you can be much larger.  This one in particular was specifically cut to be worn open, with the slightly exaggerated broad shoulder in the Regency style and a nipped-in waist.

Victoria Jackets

PRICE: $85 (regular price $235; the sale price is actually below cost of materials!).  The price may go up if these go really fast, so grab one soon if you want it.

These are the most comfortable suit jacket ever!  Due to careful material selection and shaping, you can reach up or hug yourself with ZERO binding.  I’ve made a point of making the bicep fit very generous, so even if tight sleeves are a regular issue for you, you shouldn’t have a problem (if in doubt, email me for a sleeve measurement).

I feel this design looks especially amazing on larger sizes and people with boxy shapes.  If jackets usually feel like straitjackets to you, or you owe it to yourself to give Victoria a chance. 

Things to Note

  • Because the chest area is open and the hip size is irrelevant due to the peplum design, choose these by your waist size – NOT your “usual” size in jackets.  You can tighten the waist by several inches using the rear lacings. 
  • Victoria jackets look best when quite fitted, so if in doubt, go down a size, unless you want to layer thicker garments underneath. 
  • Details like buttons, the exact fabric of the collar, rear lacing loops, sleeve adjustment channels, and any trim will differ from piece to piece. 
  • All black jacquards are a bit different from each other — they’re subtle tone-on-tone textures or patterns of black on black.  Please ONLY request a photo if you really need one to make a decision!
