CU of hat detail.  "Brass button" here looks to be a brad.  Matt gold braid over wide pleated black ribbon. Decorate tape is hand shaped by gathering the inside of the curve to shape the flat trim.
Examining the trouser detail, can see that that the front flat is false.  (Means zipper hidden in the back or side.)

This photo is also good for seeing the bottom details of the coat.

CU detailed look of the sleeves, edge is finished with tape turned under.

Cuff decoration is 3 layers of the same decorative trim used on the trower.
