Austro-Hungarian tunic 1854

Austro-Hungarian tunic 1854

Austro-Hungarian tunic pattern 1851-4, as worn during the 1859 Italian campaign from Montebello to Solferino. Identical copy of an original one in my own collection, cut according to a pattern developed from this original tunic, and personal examination of other four identical coats in the museums of Milano, Melegnano and Solferino, together with the text of the official regulations. 

It is made of fine white wool cloth, lined with natural hemp canvas (Zwilch) in the body and fine cotton in the skirts. Buttons of brass or  pewter according to regiment. 

This tunic can be made for either German or Hungarian regiments, Jaegers, as well as in all the versions for artillery, dragoons, chevau-légers, pioneers, gendarmerie, etc.

Available in the standard four regulation sizes, plus an additional xlarge one, or made to your own measures. Please specify your height for sleeve and tunic length.

The officer's version is made of finer cloth and features an eight button front fastening instead of six for privates. It is also heavily padded in the body fronts and sides.
