SPECIAL NOTICE: This doublet is elegant, suave and a bit provocative. It is not intended for shrinking violets because you WILL be noticed while wearing it. Necks will crane, mouths will gape and grandmothers will experience a fluttering of girlish delight to merely be in the presence of the man who dares wear it. If you can’t handle this kind of attention, then please do not buy the doublet.
The magnificent doublet is made with a luxurious chenille tapestry with the most delectable woven design. It is accented with a lattice designed olive jacquard. The lining is a medium weight jacquard fabric in shades of champagne and taupe and it is interlined with heavy weight interfacing. Lightweight boning has been inserted at the grommets for added structure and support. Heavy, natural cording laces through twenty machine pressed grommets at the front openings.. The cording ends are crimped with aiglets for ease of threading and a nice finished look.
The shoulders of this collared doublet have been embellished with ‘caps’ and the waist has a striking tabbed peplum…so dashing!
The sleeves are detachable and tie with cording (crimped with aiglets) to d-rings which have been placed inconspicuously inside the doublet armholes. It has elegant buttons attached at five places along the opening of each sleeve. The sleeves are designed to allow glimpses of the shirt worn underneath. As you can see, it looks spectacular with or without the sleeves and is available for purchase either way.
If you’d prefer a different type of closure rather than the grommets and cording, such as cloak-type clasps or frog closures, there will be an extra charge. The amount will vary depending on the type of closure you select and the cost of the materials.
This doublet is made when ordered in standard chest sizes 30 through 52.
