This is a very elegant style jacket. Lots of detail and trim all over the front as well as cuffs and on the tail. This Jacket does have tails! Very traditional looking. It would be great for music man or even for a military jacket in a play. The front buttons up with fancy buttons down the front. Detail work and more decorative buttons on the sleeves. the shoulders and collar also have lots of detail trim. This is embroidered on so would need to be covered with a patch. I also have some uniforms that look identical except they have a school name embroidered on the shoulders.
