The short version is this:

If you're in need of a costume like this, this is the one you need to get.

Longer version:

My son was participating in a living museum school project and of course he picked a historical figure that was very difficult to find a costume for.

I was running out of time and I found this costume. Unable to find a respectable costume, I looked on Etsy. The costume arrived two days before the event, but that was entirely my fault due to the last minute order.

The only down side is the cost, but considering the lack of Ben Franklin costumes out there and the incredible quality of the costume, I honestly can't complain about the price.

The material looks great and it's pretty durable so my son will be Ben Franklin for Halloween, and then it will be a hand me down for my younger son.

"Step back in time and embody one of America's founding fathers with our authentic-looking Ben Franklin costume. Perfect for historical reenactments and events, this costume accurately depicts Franklin's contributions as a true Renaissance man who made a significant impact in various fields, including signing the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution."

⭐ Base Costume:
1. Boy’s Colonial Brown Frock Coat: A historically accurate replica of the type of coat worn by men during the colonial period in America. Constructed using high-quality polyester gaberdine fabric and fully lined with a poly/cotton broadcloth for added comfort and durability. The coat is specifically designed to be worn open and is intended to be worn with a waistcoat underneath. The coat features decorative gold buttons.

2. Brown backless waistcoat: This long vest just above the knee is made of a gaberdine fabric and is designed to be worn under the jacket. It has an attached lace dickey (jabot) at the neckline with gold buttons and is secured in the back with Velcro and laces.

3. Brown colonial breeches: Made of gaberdine fabric, these breeches feature an elastic waistband with elastic at the bottom of the pant leg for a comfortable fit and length adjustment. They are designed to be worn under the colonial jacket and vest and typically extend to just below the knee.

⭐ Bundle Option (in addition to items in the Base Costume):
4. White lace cuffs: Worn under the colonial coat sleeve to mimic the colonial shirt sleeve appearance under the colonial coat.

5. White colonial stockings: To-the-knee socks. Worn just under the breeches to just below the knee.

6. Colonial shoe buckles: Worn over the shoe and held in place with elastic to give the appearance of colonial period shoes.

⭐ Value Bundle (in addition to items in the Bundle Option):
7. Ben Franklin Wig: A one-size wig meant to resemble the iconic hairstyle of Benjamin Franklin.

8. Wire-rimmed square-shaped spectacles

9. Colonial tricorn hat with white trim: This is a three-cornered hat that was commonly worn during the American Revolutionary War. It is made of a durable fabric and features white trim around the edges. The hat has a wide brim that can be worn up or down, depending on the wearer's preference. We include a foam hat spacer for size adjustment.

Your child will look and feel like a true historical figure when they dress up in this Benjamin Franklin costume. It's a great way for them to learn about and engage with history in a fun and interactive way.

You can find the size chart as a photo in the product listing or on a separate informational page. Please follow the measurement instructions provided on the size chart.

Our garments do not follow standard modern-day sizing because they are created based on patterns from specific historical periods. The measurements we provide on the size chart represent the dimensions of the garment itself, not body measurements.
