18th century frock coats

A rare, lightweight man's coat for summer wear - in France or its colonies - 1760s. Sold at the Hotel Drouot, Paris (2010), the striped silk taffeta in shades of green & pastel pink instantly appeals to today's eye. What makes it unusual is an attached vest. The two front sections of the vest are sewn directly to the armholes of the coat, so there is no back to the vest, just the coat itself.  Courtesy, www.thierrydemaigret.com
