A single breasted Gehrock would work, but double is fine....

A corpulent frock coat would work.... since its the most basic form I can work from.... And please include diagrams for preparation of the pattern prior to cutting...

Thank you in advance.

Well, I thought You have it, because both of your scans are from this edition.

Wich kind of bodycoat do you want? Maybe I can scan a pattern.

P.S. I do not really have a copy of that book. Those pictures I posted, I downloaded them from C&T forum.

I don't have that book frankly, so that's why I'm asking in the first place. But I often wish I can own that.

In my Mueller "Zuschnitt fuer die Herrenschneiderei XVII" there are several corpulent drafts ( Cutaway, Gehrock, Frack, Soutanelle, and the Reverende you posted).

The preperation is the same for all of them. The pattern gets slashed along the chestline and pivoted open for 1,5cm at the front edge. Then you slash the front dart up to the chestline and pivot the dart a bit more open (from 1,5cm to 2cm usually). In patterns wich allow a neckhole dart you also slash a line from the neckhole to the chest line (about to 2cm from e towards CF) , and pivot the front edge part. This will open the neckhole dart (about 1,5cm) and reclose the front edge line more or less.  The actual dart has to be short enough to be hidden under the lapel.
 Thus the added width and length for the chest is only at the center of the chest line, keeping the front edge short. But keep in mind that this preperations are only for patterns that are yet drafted with a corpulent draft. They are not intended to change a normal draft to  corpulent draft. (like on your second pic)

Just like what I said earlier, there are Rundschau patterns for body coats (especially body coats).... and there is one example for a corpulent figure I have....



This one is for a clerical variant of a frock coat. But what I was asking was a tutroial diagram on how to treat the patter before cutting....

Something like the white shapes on black backgrounds here:

Body Coats are those that are fitted to the body such as frock coats, tails, waistcoats.  They fit close to the body hence the name.  I don't know any German drafts for this but there are plenty of English systems for such coats, maybe look at the Modern Tailor and Outfitter or search for body coat drafts.  They are generally "tweaked" like most coat drafts as the fitting points are generally the same.
