1870-1890 Men's Sack Coat

(7 reviews) Write a Review
Front view

This coat covers the time period just following the Civil War all the way up through the dawn of the 20th Century.  This is "the" coat of the western expansion and "Old West" period.  We are excited to be offering this coat, which features 3 external functional pockets and one internal functional pocket.  There is no split in the back.  Our sack is offered in a variety of wools, wool/cotton jeans cloth, and linen.  Buttons are cloth covered unless otherwise requested.  The coat is lined in brown polished cotton and features hand sewn button holes.  If a later period is being interpreted, button holes can be machine sewn upon special request.    

*most coats are not in stock and will require the appropriate wait time, so please make note of that when ordering.  Thank you.

    I ordered in February and received my coat late March. The coat is sewn amazingly, aswell as the sizing is great and the brow color is beautiful. I can't wait to continue assembling my outfit with the assistance of SUM!

    Reenactment Sack Coat

    Posted by Morgan Trenshaw on 30th Jul 2023

    I bought this coat with a lot of expectations to when I could get to wear it. I was NOT disappointed and in fact the finished product blew away any and every expectation that I had! The fit is true to the time period, and I really do love the hand sewn button holes. I do living history and this will definately go in not only that wardrobe, but my everyday wear. I highly recommend this sack coat, if it is your first time buying clothing from SUM then contact Chris. I did not need to, however I have been told that he has excellent knowledge and communication to get you the right size! Thanks Mr. Chris I cannot thank you enough!!

    Very well made fits good! If I had one thing to say I’d say make the armpit area a bit bigger

    Really well made coat actually, both inside and outside, big in size though, I'm usually a size 36 but could’ve easily gone down one size.
