    if its original, its very cool! I would wear it even if it wasn't. I have an ORIGINAL Reagan Bush 84 shirt. I see the people with the new ones every once in a while.

    Very nice, a frock coat in something other than heavyweight navy or black. I could use a new ratcatcher coat, though there's one more button than I'm technically entitled to. I could probably make it work, though, and it's actually the right number for my father. Shoot me some details, Wes?

    That's it. I could not think of the right word.

    Hella small for you bro. About a 38 or so.

    Damn, usually are. Anyway, quick primer for interested parties:

    [​IMG]

    Tailcoat: still occasionally worn on horseback, but mostly worn for formal hunt balls nowadays

    [​IMG]

    Shadbelly: halfway between a frock coat and a tailcoat. Not commonly worn.


    [​IMG]

    Frock coat, the more common option for formal hunt attire. Black or navy with black buttons until you earn your colors, when you're given a set of brass buttons with the hunt's emblem and replace the collar with a piece of felt in the primary color of the hunt. Women replace the collar and buttons on their black/navy jacket, while men will add the buttons and colors to a scarlet coat. The number of buttons on a coat is important as well, normal members have three buttons, staff and masters (owner of the hounds and maybe a few other particularly senior/respected/skilled members) have four, and five buttons is reserved for the huntsman (the person who actually hunts the hounds) and masters who hunt their own hounds.

    There's plenty more detail to the various levels and sub levels of proper hunt attire, but that's enough for a brief introduction. Why this matters to y'all as thrifters is that there's not really any budget offerings for hunt attire and even relatively worn secondhand gear can go for a pretty penny if you wait for the right buyer. New men's frock coats run $700-900 and don't go on sale, while new tailcoats are hard to find under a grand.
