Royal Naval uniform: pattern 1812
This 1812 pattern dress coat, belonging to a rear-admiral, reflects the influence of contemporary fashions on uniform. The lapels have been stitched down, the buttonholes are non-working and have been edged with bands of gold lace. The front of the coat fastens with 14 heavy brass hooks and eyes to create a very solid effect. This is further enhanced by additional padding in the lining of the chest and shoulders. The front is cut straight across and the skirts slant back in the style of the cut-away coat. The crown over the anchor on the buttons was introduced in the regulations for 1812.
