Austrian coat "Rock"

Austrian coat "Rock"

Austrian uniform coat or "Rock", made of white cloth for infantry, dragoons and cuirassiers, green for chevau-léger, brown for Grenzer (Croats) and artillery, pike grey (Hechtgrau) for Jaegers, cornflower blue for pioneers. 

Meticulously reconstructed from the official regulations (as those on display at the Army Museum of Vienna are actually later reconstructions) and comparison with later (1836 pattern) still extant original coats, it is made of off-white broadcloth and lined with raw hemp canvas. Is is available for any branch of service and unit, and in the standard 4 sizes provided for at the time, plus an additional xlarge modern size. It can also be made to your own measures. Pewter or brass plain half-domed buttons. If you choose a Hungarian regiment the cuffs are cut pointed and display a white cloth stylized "bear's paw". There is an option for the earlier 1798 pattern with long waist and sloping large turnbacks, or the later 1809 pattern with shorter waist and cut-in tails.
