Advances in tailoring techniques focussed attention on the construction rather than the colour of men's coats. Tailors skilfully measured, cut and manipulated the cloth to ensure a perfect fit and conceal human imperfections such as rounded shoulders. Here the precise shaping of the collar, close-fitting sleeves and waist seam help show the figure off to its best advantage.The donor of this coat was a master-tailor of Glastonbury.
