Regency men's garment

crafted using historical sewing techniques

The Regency men's garment was made for Living History performances at the Hamburg-Kiekeberg Open-Air Museum mainly by hand using historical sewing techniques and assembled with clearly visible hand stitches; all outer edges, hems, buttonholes and eyelets as well as all buttons are handmade, the neckerchief was hand-rolled.

The tailcoat is made of dark red virgin wool with a slightly shortened top in keeping with contemporary tastes, so that the waistcoat underneath remains visible. It has a double-breasted button fastening and the fashionably high and heavily stiffened stand-up collar reaches up to the ears.

The fabric for the waistcoat was woven on a hand loom according to an original pattern from 1805.
