    New Ordering System
    New Ordering System
    We have changed the way you order our uniforms!

    Our fabulous ranges of historically accurate Federal/Union Officers Uniforms are still hand made in our tailoring shop to your exact specifications BUT many customers said that the old system was a little confusing!

    Hopefully this new method will be easier.

    We can all see from surviving photography and original uniforms in museums that there were a great many variations worn by officers during the period. As a result we decided that it would be best to let you choose exactly what you want!

    Basically you start with the jacket design, whether single or double breasted we have Shell Jackets and Frock Coats to choose from. Each style's price is clearly shown at the end of the item description; this is the price for a standard jacket with none of chargeable optional extras it does include the collar insignia and your choice of buttons.

    You choose whether you want fully functioning cuffs! If you wish you can add branch of service coloured cuff and or collars, Austrian knots, branch of service coloured piping, your rank, your button choice and then finally your size!

    The checkout will work out the total cost but to make it easier we have listed all the price options next to the chargeable choices.

    Delivery for these uniforms is currently a minimum of 12 weeks
