For sale here is a wonderful item and one of the most interesting we've had the fortune to find. It is a bespoke Henry Poole white tie tailcoat but what makes this special is the shawl collar design. We've had a couple before but either later European styles or Edwardian but not in great condition. This is a Savile Row garment made in that style which is slightly different. The lapels, sleeve linings and lining are made of silk satin, the buttons are a covered domed type and the cuff is working. In addition .... this was made for Lord John Spencer Churchill and so related to Diana and Winston among many others. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Spencer-Churchill,_10th_Duke_of_Marlborough
A superb and rare item. We will be buying a new smaller mannequin shortly so apologies for the half hanging.
Sleeve - 26
Shoulder - 16
Length - 42.5
Chest - 17.5
Fit - A 35 longish, he would have been relatively young at the time and so its a very slim fit .
There is a repair around the collar and other light signs of wear but generally excellent.
