Redingote

coat which is close-fitting at the waist and the back of which has a similar cut to that of evening dress; has side seams below the shoulders, which are arch-shaped. Extends towards the lower edge. Its lapel collar is adapted to meet the demands of fashion, and it may be single- or double-breasted. Has its origins in England, where in the 18th century it served as ridingwear. The name is given by the English "riding coat". Later became popular as a lounge coat in France; in the 19th century it was a rudimentary garment. May be a ladies' or men's coat.
