Gents 38" Scarlet Evening Tail Coat with Atherstone Buttons.
Tailored by Scrutons of Birmingham - possibly in 1946.
The coat has 2 inner breast pockets and 2 glove pockets concealed in the tails.
Working cuffs to each sleeve, with 3 buttons on each.
Atherstone Hunt buttons (8 large and 6 small) made by Firmin of London will remain on the coat - the lining will need unpicking to remove them and replace with other buttons.
There is a little wear to the silver facings, but you would replace these with your own hunt colours.
Minor marks and signs of wear in general as to be expected, but overall in very good condition, with no external holes or repairs.
