The lounge or banyan coat was a common outer garment that was worn by gentlemen throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, and beyond. Ours is styled after mid-19th century coats and is made of paisley cotton exterior and wool lining for that night and early morning warmth. Both cloths were custom made for us and our reproduction. The coat also features wooden dish buttons and hand sewn button holes. While these garments were worn in the home, they were also worn in camp settings, as several images from the Civil War will show evidence of. This is an outer garment that is sorely missing from the living history community, and one that will definitely fine tune your appropriate impression. These are made to be a loose fitting over garment, so are offered in standard sizes listed in the options. Note - sizes in stock are reflected in options. I am in the process of grading the pattern for larger sizes.
