The Perfect Tailcoat
Tailcoats, also called morning coats, date back to the nineteenth century. This single or double-breasted coat is cut with a longer back and was originally made for horseback riding, a gentleman’s sport. While today the coat isn’t so commonly worn for sport, it is often worn at races such as Royal Ascot and the Derby.
It’s also commonly seen at official governmental or Royal functions, as well as weddings. Every one of these events will almost certainly be filled with well-dressed, high-class people. Invest in a tailor-made, customized morning coat and let Edit Suits Co. help you dress up to standard.
Below you can find a small selection of tailcoats from our collection. With thousands of fabrics and countless customisation options available, we can help ease the pressure of finding the perfect tailcoat by helping you to create your own.
Traditionally, tailcoats are made of black or dark grey herringbone wool. The coat is frequently paired with a contrasting waistcoat. We recommend a light grey or beige wool fabric for your waistcoat. To complete the look, go for a pair of pinstripe trousers.

While people wear tailcoats to look smart, they only really look smart when their tailcoat fits them properly. We give those men who understand the importance of fit the opportunity to customize their ensemble.
We’ll use our expertise to make sure your tailcoat fits your shoulders and chest and hangs in a way that’s flattering for your individual body type. But we don’t merely offer the opportunity to customize the fit. We’ll also help you transform the otherwise traditional tailcoat into something that’s uniquely yours. For example, you could line the coat with a vibrant paisley fabric, or even monogram your new jacket.
It’s simple: unless a tailcoat was made for you, it wasn’t. And it shows: buying off the rack almost guarantees disappointment in terms of fit, style, and personality. It’s worth spending just a little bit more for something that you’ve had made exclusively for yourself, rather than cutting corners and settling for a tailcoat that is just like many thousands of others.
At an event like a wedding or the Royal Ascot, it is especially important not to be dressed just like everyone else. You want to stand out. And with our help, you could even be best dressed.
Based in both London and Singapore, we have the expertise and tools to make the tailcoat you wear to your next special event something that’s uniquely yours.
