Coat inspired by Victorians

Mētelis tika radīts, iedvesmojoties no otrā turnīra laikmeta (19.gs. 80. gadi) mēteļu un piegrieztā kostīma variantiem. Tipiski tā laika dienas tērpam, tam ir augsta apkakle un garas piedurknes, kurus rotā kruzuļi, radot vairāku kārtu efektu. Mēteļiem tāpat kā visiem citiem apģērbiem, kas bija garāki par jostas vietu, mugurpusē bija pagarinājums (basque) ieloču vai piegriezuma formā. Tas atļāva piegriezumā iestrādātajam papildus audumam pārkrist un izkārtoties pār apjomīgo turnīru (grozveida karkass, kas tolaik tika vilkts, lai svārku mugurpusi padarītu apjomīgāku un šķietami kuplāku). Lai gan mūsdienās turnīrs ir izgājis no ikdienas modes, mēteļa ieloces ar kruzuļiem rada interesantu efektu, cilvēkam atrodoties kustībā.
This coat was made after the late bustle-era style coat. It has a high neck typical for day wear at the time. The neck and cuffs are trimmed with ruffles. Late bustle era coats and other clothing that continued over the waistline had extensions of the bodice below the waist (called a basque) In the form of folds on the back panels or simply by the cut they were designed so the extra fabric on the back can fan out over the skirt accommodating the ample bustle (a type of device worn to make skirt at the high back appear fuller) that was worn underneath. Although today a bustle isn’t a common part of fashion, the deep folds with trim achieve a nice effect when walking, while the trim at the neck and cuffs create multi layered effect.
