The History of Jackets and Coats

The jacket, a garment with history

A Blazer should have their natural place in every man’s wardrobe. Ideally, a man owning at least two jackets, a jacket as part of a costume and a to odd Blazer or blazer for times when a suit is too much but just a shirt for a bit. But how does the jacket’s history? Why does today’s jacket looks like it does?

Morning gown and Frock

The jacket has its background in a number of different articles of clothing that are all closely related.
An origin is from the morning coat with rounded bottom and cut a forked cool brittle at the back to be used for riding on the day in which the past is almost exclusively used. This morning the coat came in the 1880 ‘s to be accepted for use during the day to replace frock that was knee-length and not as practical for horseback riding and other activities. Today the morning coat almost exclusively on formal occasions such as weddings, receptions, and some horse racing.

Tailcoat

For dinner and the evening was replaced by the morning coat tailcoat that was considered to be a more formal evening garment worn alone. Frackjackan that are worn untucked, the double-breasted is higher and more straight cut at the waist than morning coat and had pointed types in comparison with the stubby kind that exist on the morning coat. In addition, frackjackan the characteristic cool-tails at the back.

The jacket is born

In the late 1800 ‘s and early 1900 ‘s started the Blazer which we today know to arrive. First as an informal garment to wear during the day, especially during outdoor activities such as sports or other outdoor activities.
In the beginning it was used primarily for private events but came in time to be used for more widespread and more informal context. At more formal events during the day were used this morning coat that increasingly pushed aside the frock. It was mainly elderly gentlemen who long kept behind in the use of the first frock coat, and then this morning in front of the shorter jackets that were popular among the younger generation of men. Frock stopped be used fully even in the most formal sammahangen of the 1930s.

The tuxedo

During this time also came the tuxedo will increasingly displace tailcoat as formal clothing in the evening, except among the most conservative who continued to prefer dress coat in the evening.

Smokingjackan is slightly longer in the waist than frackjackan, lacks the cool-tails and its nature can appear in slightly different ways. In addition, the Smokingjackan usually worn buttoned and can be either single or double-breasted.

The suit

Kostymkavajen was from the beginning first double-breasted but soon became the standard single button closure. Beaten on the jacket was most common pointed. Before the mid-1930s were coats slim fit and then completely change and become more straight fit.

After World War II brought additional changes to the jacket. Much of this was due to the rationing that took place during the second world war, which led to several changes. Many men came to prefer the single buttoned jacket in front of the double-breasted, and the jacket’s fit came to change during the decades from broad to narrow in the waist. Also beaten was to change during the time and switched back and forth between wide and narrow.

The jacket becomes the default

In the 1970s came the costume to go on sale as a separate jacket and trousers, which meant that the man himself was able to choose the size of the jacket and the pants that fit him.
From the 1980s to now have the jacket’s design has been changed several times, depending on trends. Today, most sports jackets made to fit most fits and styles, however, blunted beats and simple buttoned the most common.
Jackets may also have either one, two or totally lack the slit in the back, although the two are most common when it is considered to be the most suitable for most people.

The jacket has evolved greatly over the last century, but has a long history stretching back hundreds of years. A garment to wear with pride.
