Morning Dress Guide
The morning coat is the epitome of men’s formal daywear. With its horizontal seam at the waist, cutaway skirt, and archaic buttons in the back, the coat has been a favorite of British aristocrats since the 19th century. Sven Raphael Schneider’s Morning Dress Guide covers the garment’s impeccable history, but his site is not merely a nostalgic mash note to the past. Schneider also offers tips for contemporary men, such as how to match a coat with the right pair of shoes and vest; how to wear a boutonniere; and how to make sure the coat fits so its unforgiving cut does not produce unsightly wrinkles at the waist.
