British infantry officer's coat/jacket 1799-1815
British infantry/Foot Guards officer's coat or jacket, available for most regiments.
Painstakingly replicated from various original extant coats preserved in the NAM museum of London and other British military museums or private collections.
It is made of "superfine" scarlet wool broadcloth exactly matching period samples and original extant specimens, and lined with fine white wool serge or "shallloon" in the body and fine linen or silk serge in the sleeves.
Both the "laced" and "unlaced" versions are available, please specify. Some regiments (e.g. the 3rd or "Buffs" and the 27th or "Inniskilling", see pics above) had only unlaced versions, while other regiments had laced coats for dress parades and unlaced ones for undress and campaign.
The pictures 3-8 show a reconstructed 42nd Highlanders "Black Watch" fully laced coat, faithful copy of the original one preserved in the Scottish United Services Museum (the buttons were supplied by the customer, this is why they do not appear in the photos).
Specify if you want a centre, grenadier or light company coat, for style of tail pockets and embroidered devices. Wings or fringed epaulettes are not included, but must be ordered seperately.
Available in the 4 standard period sizes, plus a modern xlarge size, or better tailored to your own measures (please fill-in the measure form in the last pic above).
