Red & Golden Coat

This costume was featured in "The Man in the Iron Mask" from 1998, starring Leonardo di Caprio as Louis XIV. The costume's sleeves are typical of the 17th century with their wide hem. The coat is a lush red and there are blue flowers and golden straws embroidered with golden thread.
Under the heavy coat, the Sun King is wearing a dark vest with what appears to be golden buttons. The large hem of the white shirt is laced - the same lacing also appears at the neckline.
