great outfit for July fourth
I ordered a large uniform. I wish I could have ordered different parts of the uniform in different sizes. The pants were too long - I normally order pants with and extra short in-seem. The vest was too tight - I normally order extra large shirts. I took the uniform to a local tailor to have it altered. Hopefully this works. I needed to wear the uniform soon and did not want to wit to send-it back.
Quick delivery! And the quality is very nice! I can't wait to see it on my husband!! Thank you very much!
Adult George Washington Costume
Adult George Washington Costume
George Washington's Continental officer's military uniform is emblematic of the leadership and resilience that characterized the Revolutionary War and the birth of the United States of America.
During the Revolutionary period, uniforms distinguished rank and affiliation and served as symbols of national unity and pride. Washington's uniform was no exception. As Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army, his attire was needed to set him apart and inspire his troops.
Choosing to don the uniform of a Continental officer rather than a more opulent attire reflected Washington's commitment to the revolutionary cause and his desire to stand in solidarity with his troops. This uniform symbolizes the sacrifices, determination, and unity that helped forge a nation.
⭐ The Base Costume includes: (3 PCS)
1. American Continental Army officers uniform jacket - This is a formal military jacket worn by officers during the American Revolutionary War. It is made of a royal blue fabric and features contrasting tan lapels, facings, and tails. The jacket has gold buttons that are not pre-attached and must be attached using hitch pin clips, which are included.
2. Tan military waistcoat - This waistcoat is made of a tan gaberdine fabric, fully lined with cotton broadcloth, and is designed to be worn under the uniform jacket. The vest has gold buttons that are not pre-attached and must be attached using hitch pin clips, which are included.
