"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."

⭐ The Base Costume includes:

1. Men'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 two working pockets, hidden by large pocket flaps, one on each side, decorative shank buttons on one side, and an embroidered, non-working buttonhole.

2. Colonial-style brown waistcoat made with polyester gaberdine fabric, lined with poly/cotton blend broadcloth. This waistcoat features a full back and a button front with a distinctive upside-down "V" design with two front pockets. We include gold buttons that are not pre-attached that fasten with the included hitch pin clips. The buttons are removable and interchangeable, offering endless possibilities for personal customization.

3. Brown colonial breeches: These breeches are made of brown gaberdine fabric and feature an elastic waistband for a comfortable fit and two side pockets. They are designed to be worn under the colonial jacket and vest and extend to just below the knee.

⭐ Bundle Option (in addition to items in Base Costume):

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

5. 18th Century lace jabot: The jabot is made of white cotton broadcloth with attached white lace trim. This gives the costume a more formal look.

6. White lace cuffs: Worn under the colonial coat sleeve to mimic the colonial shirt sleeve appearance under the colonial coat.

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

⭐ Value Bundle Option (in addition to items in Bundle Option):

8. Wire-rimmed square-shaped spectacles.

9. Colonial tricorn hat with white trim, a historically accurate headwear from the colonial period. The hat is made of wool and has a wide brim that can be adjusted and secured with brass rivets. The white trim around the edges adds a finishing touch to this iconic colonial accessory.

 What size should I order?

"Selecting the right size is crucial when ordering our garments. Please refer to the size chart provided for each individual item, as it is tailored to the specific measurements of that item. 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.

 If you're unsure about your size, measure a similar, NON-STRETCH garment you already own and love. Compare its measurements to the ones on our size chart to ensure you choose the right fit."
