    CT5616  Greatcoat in Jeancloth
    CT5616 Greatcoat in Jeancloth
    During 1861-1862 The Federal Army authorised the use of colours other than sky blue kersey wool for the manufacture of greatcoats, this was due to the difficulty in obtaining enough material to satisfy all of its needs. There are surviving examples of State issued greatcoats in jeanscloth and we have therefore produced a limited number of these coats to give our customers the opportunity to create a different impression next season. The coat is made to the standard infantry pattern from dark blue depot jeanscloth and is fully lined with grey wool flannel to the body and cotton calico for the sleeves. We supply this coat with 2 sets of buttons for Federal and Confederate use.
    Available to fit chest sizes 44" to 52".
