Men's Regency Tailcoat with Five Collar and Lapel Options. Period 1810 - 1830
This tailcoat has a waist seam and is double breasted with the bottom two buttons meant to be buttoned. (If you want a similar coat with no waist seam, see pattern LMM #122.)  When buttoned the collar and lapels bow out to make room for shirt, cravat, and up to two vests. The collar stands approximately 3 inches tall at the back of the neck when folded over. The front of the coat is cut broad and the back narrow, forcing an erect stance or may even throw the shoulders back. The fit is very close. The sleeves are very long, meaning to end at the wrist or longer, with the cuffs adding another 3 inches so that the sleeves with cuffs end at the knuckles of the hand. The sleeves fit very closely except at the top where they are puffed and full.  The shoulders are cut very narrow. There are two separate tails that overlap at center back. The coat has an inside breast pocket and there are two tail pockets. The back has two pocket flaps that are only decorative. View A can be made with any wool. Views B, D, D, and E have a collar and lapel that must be
made with wool that does not ravel or ravels very little. View A lapel is a simple notched collar, which could be made with the upper collar of velvet if desired. View B is a small "M" notch. View C was called a "Lark's Tongue" notch and is very pointed. View D is a wide "M" notch. View E is a long touching "M" notch. The instructions have both period and modem (theatrical) tailoring instructions. Information about fabric, interfacing, lining, fit, and supplies sources are included inside the pattern.
