French 1860/1867/1877 pattern infantry overcoat

French infantry overcoat patterns 1860, 1867 or 1877,  of gris-de-fer-bleuté wool melange cloth, canvas lining, brass regimental buttons.

Meticulously replicated down to the smallest details from an extant original item in my own collection and strictly following the official description in the Journal Militaire. Much of the stitching was still hand-sewn.

The photos show a reconstructed Marine Infantry capote with red anchor collar patches and buttons, as worn in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1.

Epaulettes not included.

Available in standard sizes and heights.
