Carrick

fashionable men's coat from the beginning of the 19th century, notable at the time for its quietness and elegance. Had a largecollar, which in winter was of fur; at the waist it was close-fitting and its lower edge was generously gathered. It reached to approx. 10cm from the ground. For the most part it was worn in inclement weather and in winter. The name is derived from the Irish town of Carrick.
