Great Item, well made!
Seems to be decently well made. Synthetic fabric is soft and less 'Coat-like', but not surprised given the price point. Will know more, once it gets some wear.
LOTS of buttons!
Great product and workmanship. Fits my son well.
Excellent quality. My son is so excited to wear this. Expedited shipping was super pricey, but arrived very fast.
American Continental Army Uniform Jacket
American Continental Army Uniform Jacket
In 1779, Gen. Washington devised a plan to take advantage of the newfound wealth the alliance with France would bring. The several volunteer regiments of the States would be grouped into Corps areas by geographic region. Each Corps area would wear a distinctive outer coat. All the coats are to be blue. Facings in white, buff, red, and blue, respectively.
The colors worn on uniforms had more meaning than mere fashion that caught civilian acceptance. It tended to build pride in the company or regiment. Battlefields were often shrouded in cannon and gun smoke. Commanders could discern the uniform colors through the haze and then could order logistical changes of location by identifying friends from foes. The British red coat, or the blue color used by the Continentals, would distinguish a friend from an enemy in the chaos of a battlefield.
Artillery officers would have worn this blue Continental Army coat with red facings & whitetail along with the Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland & Virginia Regiments.
All colonial military jackets come with detachable buttons that attach with hitch pin clips; this helps prolong the life of the coat during washes and allows for effortless button customization.
*Note* Buttons may vary, and hitch pins are included but are not pre-attached; This is for cleaning purposes as these coats are washable, and buttons may detach during laundering. BUTTONS WILL VARY
- Materials: Cotton, Metal Button
