U.S. INFANTRY FROCK COAT. On Temporary Hold #BC5288.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

U.S. INFANTRY FROCK COAT. PRICE REDUCED  #DL3836. Made by Chris Daley this size 38 infantry trimmed frock coat is a copy of the Pvt. Steven H. Parker’s (44th Massachusetts Infantry regiment) private purchase pattern frock coat. This coat was purchased brand new by the owner in 2004 (he included the receipt with the coat to verify this) and it has NEVER been worn. It has been stored in a cedar chest for thirteen years and is as nice as the day it was made.

This beautiful frock is made from dark blue imported English wool broadcloth and has indigo dyed trim on the standing quilted collar and on the pointed pattern cuffs. There are nine 3/4” stamped brass U.S. general service eagle buttons on the front, two of the same in the back plus two small 1/2” buttons on each non-functioning cuff. (non-functioning meaning they do not button / unbutton). Inside we have a FULL LENGTH dark green polished cotton lining with padded / quilted breast panels. In the upper right and left breast panels are horizontal cut pockets. There are also two internal entry tail pockets in the skirt lining. The tail pockets themselves are made from a fine grain white cotton broadcloth. The skirt lining is hand hemmed to the wool portion of the skirt while the bottom edge of the wool skirt is raw. There is a load of hand stitching in this coat: around the lower portion of the arm hole on the white cotton broadcloth sleeve linings, on the lining where the body lining panels join the skirt lining at the waist, along the bottom edge of the skirt lining (as mentioned above), along both sides of the tail splits where the lining joins them, along the vertical front edge of the skirt/lining seams and across the inside bottom edge of the standing quilted collar. The button holes are hand sewn of course.

This frock also features the fashionable wide cut “French” elbows which measure 9 1/2” across at the widest part. Finally, there is a small 1” wide x 2” long dark spot near the rear of the right side skirt lining (see last photo). This is where a label was at one time from the polished cotton supplier. Even today we occasionally get this ourselves when we buy assorted cottons from various suppliers. It is not a physical problem (such as a fabric repair, etc) but just a mark left from labeling.

Below are some additional sizes. PLEASE check these against your own measurements to insure this coat will fit you satisfactorily.

CHEST: 38” (made for a gentlemen with a 38” chest size)
COLLAR: 20” (not counting the 1 3/4” gap between collar ends)

U.S. INFANTRY FROCK COAT. Size 38. SOLD!  #RC6524.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

U.S INFANTRY FROCK COAT. SIZE 54. On Temporary Hold #KL5453. Made NJ Sekela this size 54 U.S. frock coat was worn once and remains in great physical condition. Has two very small & very light stains by the collar, some very light marks on the sleeve linings at the cuffs and a small stain on the bottom edge of the skirt in the back (see photos). These are all very minor and the frock overall is in really great condition. Just to mention it, a dry cleaning (although certainly not mandatory whatsoever) would get all these trite stains or marks out. Just sayin’ (as the saying goes :-)

Made in Sekela’s dark slate blue wool broadcloth with a full pigeon breasted cut and trimmed around the standing collar and pointed functioning cuffs in a thin sky blue piping. Hook & eye is present in the collar. Nine 3/4” stamped brass U.S. general service eagles on the front, two of the same on the back and two smaller 5/8” stamped brass U.S. eagles on each cuff (one is a replacement and has a small area of discoloration). The bottom skirt hem is raw. Inside we have black cotton padded & hand quilted breast panel linings plus muslin sleeve linings. There is also a small section of each underarm lined in black cotton as well. Two internal entry pockets in the folds of the skirt at the tails. There are also two sets of hooks & eyes in the skirt for hooking the skirt back on to the tails for ease of marching. This is an original authentic feature that you do not find in mainstream frocks. There are no stamps in this coat (maker/size/inspector).

Comes w/ a brand new set of private’s shoulder scales w/ attachment pieces ( a $50.00 value by themselves being offered with this coat for free). These scales and attachment pieces have not been attached to the frock yet and are still in their original shipping bag.

Here are some additional measurements. PLEASE check these against your own respective sizes to insure this frock coat will fit you satisfactorily on ALL points.

COLLAR: 22 1/2” (when hooked closed)
SHOULDERS: 23 1/2” (as measured shoulder-to-shoulder across the back)
SLEEVE (arm) LENGTH: 24” (edge of shoulder to the bottom of the cuff)

U.S. INFANTRY FROCK COAT.   #MC3876. Made by Ray Hock this high end size 38 "museum grade" frock coat has been worn a couple times but remains in GREAT condition. Freshly dry cleaned but some sweat stains do remain on the sleeve linings. Made from a dark blue lightweight wool. Comes with the mounting hardware for shoulder scales already sewn on (scales not included) and has two service stripes per sleeve. There is just a very slight amount of fading on one of the upper corners of the sky blue collar trim. Certainly not bad at all though and it’s a tiny amount at that. There is also some very slight stitch marks on the sleeves where chevrons were once sewn on. These are just light stitch marks and NOT fade. They will probably disappear after the coat has been worn a little while. On one of the sleeve linings is the maker's stamp ("R & W") which historically would have been Rockhill & Wilson in Philadelphia and a size "1" stamp. A size 1 coat would be a 36" in the chest but we size this frock more as a 38". So we are listing it as a 38".

The infantry cording on this coat is a rich darker shade of sky blue and very well executed around the standing collar and on the pointed cuffs; up the cuff splits as well. Down the front are nine 1/2” stamped brass U.S. general service eagle buttons w/ two of the same on the back. Two small 1/2” U.S. eagles are on the functioning cuffs. The bottom edge of the skirt is raw. Inside we have lightly padded/machine quilted black Silesia breast panels, muslin sleeve linings, the proper wool facing (lining) across the center back at the waistline, plus two black cotton internal entry tail pockets. Lot of hand sewing is evident in this frock including hand sewn button holes of course.

COLLAR: 19” (fits up to a 19” neck comfortably)
SHOULDERS: 18” (as measured shoulder-to-shoulder across the back)
SLEEVE (arm) LENGTH: 25” (edge of shoulder to the bottom of the cuff)

U.S. FIVE BUTTON SACK COAT. #BC8938. Made from a size 46 Wambaugh, White & Co. Schuylkill Arsenal four button sack coat kit this blouse has seen very little use and remains in great condition. This coat is completely hand sewn although the sewing is not on par with some of the regular full time makers out there (please see photos). However, given that the coat is entirely hand sewn it can easily be taken apart are reassembled with finer stitching.

This coat is made from a lightweight indigo dark blue wool flannel and features a square cut falling collar, four panel body, four piece collar and two piece sleeves. Although this item started life as a Schuylkill Arsenal enlisted man’s issue sack coat, the person assembling it applied FIVE button holes on the front plus added the three cuff buttons to make it look an officers sack coat. However, one body button (the top one) is missing so there are only four 7/8” U.S. Infantry officer “I” buttons currently on the coat. There are three small 1/2” infantry officer “I” buttons sewn on each cuff. Inside we have a tan & green checkered cotton body lining plus muslin sleeve linings (w/ exposed seams). In the left sleeve are size and makers stamps (again, this started life as a Schuylkill Arsenal enlisted man’s sack coat) done in red ink. The bottom of the body lining is shorter than the coat itself, unhemmed and not attached to the bottom of the coat. The “shorter-than-the-body” detail is as per original pattering.

Below are some additional sizes. PLEASE check these against your own measurements to insure this coat will fit you satisfactorily.

SHOULDERS: 22” (as measured shoulder-to-shoulder across the back)
SLEEVE (arm) LENGTH: 25” (edge of shoulder to the bottom of the cuff)
FRONT LENGTH: 28“ (base of collar to front bottom hem)

U.S. FOUR BUTTON SACK COATS. #SST3270. On hand is a small lot of high end contract pattern U.S. four button sack coats. These sack coats are BRAND NEW NEVER USED and made from a pre-shrunk lightweight 8 oz indigo dark blue wool flannel. Please note that in some of the photos below the coats look pale dark blue and in others they look a little purple-ish. This is simply due to the bright lights and camera flash. These coats are in fact a solid rich indigo dark blue color. These coats are lined in lightweight wool flannel and have muslin sleeve linings. Some body linings are gray and some are a honey brown color. These blouses reflect a mix of machine sewing and hand finishing. Featured are correct smaller style falling collar, tapered front facings, internal left breast pocket, split scalloped cuffs plus four 3/4" stamped brass U.S. eagle buttons down the front. There are no stamps in these coats at this time. However, we will add a repro period inspector's stamp upon sale. Made by Sixth Street Tailor.

Lastly, a note concerning "pre-shrunk" as mentioned above (because we've been asked about it a lot). The woolens used in these coats have been soaked to pre-shrink the fabric prior to cutting. This means that if these blouses get damp any shrinkage will be minimal. However, if you get caught in a downpour and these coats get saturated (soaked) they will shrink further. If you take a dive into Antietam creek, the Mississippi or any body of water, these coats will likewise shrink. So if they get damp, you should have no problem. If they get saturated where you can wring them out, they will shrink considerably. THIS IS THE NATURE OF ANY WOOL FLANNEL GARMENT and applies to any makers product using wool flannel. 'Nuff said.

U.S. CAVALRY MOUNTED SERVICES JACKET. #BC4644 Maker unknown on this size 46 U.S. cavalry "shell jacket" but it comes from sutler row. It has been worn but was freshly dry cleaned prior to being sent in to us. There are some light stains remaining on the sleeve linings (under the arms) and some heavier ones at the cuffs. Most of this should dry clean out. There are also some light intermittent stains here and there on the yellow trim around the collar (not all that bad though). The coat itself thought is in great physical condition inside and out ( NO rips, tears, repairs, smells, dust, dirt, etc). There is a size 48 size tag sewn in but we size this coat as a 46 and will stand behind that sizing. No other tags, stamps or marks inside the coat.

Made in a medium weight dark blue wool and is entirely machine sewn EXCEPT for hand sewn button holes. Fully trimmed in a yellow 3/8" cotton herringbone twill tape around the body, sleeves and rear bolsters. The galoons on the collar are made from a smaller width yellow cotton twill tape. The rear bolsters are not the usual padded type but rolled lengths of wool with yellow taped edges. There are twelve 1/2" U.S. general service eagle buttons down the front, two on each functioning cuff and two per collar side (two galloons per side). No hook & eye in the collar. When this jacket first came in it has officer "C" buttons on it (these are seen in the photos). However, shortly after we received the coat the seller had us replace the small officer "C" buttons with correct plain general service U.S. eagles which correctly belong on this jacket. Inside we have a plain black cotton lining with muslin sleeve linings. There is an internal left breast pocket in the lining. Along the inside bottom edge is a full length wool wear strip that is cut wide at the lower back.

Here are some additional sizes. PLEASE check these against your own measurements to insure this coat will fit you satisfactorily.

MOBILE DEPOT JEAN WOOL JACKET. #BC4877. This size 48 Mobile Depot “Mystery” jacket was made by Nate Petersburg from a pale brown jean wool reportedly to be the last of the jean wool run off on a period loom at Texas A&M some years ago. This jacket has been worn a couple times but remains in GREAT condition. Has a couple light stains on the sleeve linings at the cuffs (the usual stuff) but other than that this jacket is clean and in super shape. This jacket features a muslin body lining, muslin sleeve linings, hand sewn button holes, two rows of hand top stitching around the body, hand felling on the sleeve linings at the arm homes plus hand stitching on the internal left breast pocket. Rounding out this jacket are seven C.S. block "I"s buttons down the front. These buttons are replacements (not original to the jacket) and six show wear not consistent with the jacket itself (as mentioned the jacket is in great condition). One of these “”I” buttons (the one at the very bottom - the shiny one) is a brand new replacement. However, the buyer can very easily replace all these buttons with buttons of their choice. Some of the current buttons could use some re-stitching to tighten them up.

C.S.GRAY WOOL ROUNDABOUT JACKET. Size38. #BC3536. Made by Calico Corner this light gray wool roundabout measures in at a size 38. There is a penned “46” on the lining by the collar but this is NOT the size of this coat. We measured it and it is definitely a 38. If the 46 is an indication of the original size, then while this coat may have started life as a 46 it is definitely a 38 at this point in time and this shop will stand behind that sizing.

So what we have here is a size 38 medium weight light gray wool roundabout that has been to the field but was dry cleaned before being sent in to us. There are some very light stains on the muslin lining and one darker one on the lining back. We believe this darker one is from suspenders. Other than that this coat is in very nice condition (no rips, tears, repairs, etc.). The coat is principally machine sewn (including button holes) but does have some hand felling around a muslin facing on the inner collar plus around the arm holes. There is a wool wear strip along the bottom of the coat on the inside. Rounding out this coat is a short standing collar, pointed functioning cuffs (same color as the coat) plus eight 3/4” “CSA” buttons on the front and two of the same on each cuff. Just to note, if you wish to have the cuffs function (button and unbutton) more easily we would recommend changing the current 3/4” buttons used in the cuffs to smaller 1/2” or 5/8”. The current 3/4” buttons are a little too large to work easily through the holes.

Here are some additional sizes. PLEASE check these against your own measurements to insure this coat will fit you satisfactorily. Please take particular notice of the short sleeve (arm) length.

COLLAR: 18” (not counting the 4” gap between collar ends)
SHOULDERS: 19” (as measured shoulder-to-shoulder across the back)
SLEEVE (arm) LENGTH: 22” (edge of shoulder to the bottom of the cuff)
FRONT LENGTH TO WAIST: 18“ (base of collar to front waistline)
FRONT LENGTH; TOTAL: 20“ (base of collar to front bottom hem)
WAIST: will fit up to a 36” waistline comfortably
ARMPIT-TO-ARMPIT: 22” (not an actual point of measurement in the tailoring world but a lot of guys ask for it)

DARK BLUE J.T. MARTIN PATTERN TROUSERS. #BC4430 Here’s a pair of dark blue 44" x 30" J.T. Martin pattern trousers made by Andrew Kasmar using Jarnagin's dark blue wool broadcloth. These trousers have been used but are overall quite solid and serviceable. A replacement waistband was added at some point. It is NOT a matching fabric as for shade of dark blue or fabric weave (see photos) so it is evident that the replacement was not done by the maker. However, if someone is very good w/ a needle and can get a fabric that better matches the trouser wool, the waistband can be replaced. There is also some significan mis-alignment of the waistband at the top of the fly (see photos) which can be corrected at the time a new waistband might be added. Same situation on the rear portion of one of the waistband pieces (see photos). There is some light pilling in the crotch but no holes. If the waistband was replaced with one that matches and new buttons added (currently has a mix of bone & tin) these trousers would be pretty nice.

Meantime, these trousers feature side seam pockets, the kite shaped rear yoke plus rolled hand hemmed cuffs. Please check out all the photos closely when we get them posted.

These trousers have a 1.5” dark shade of sky blue side seam striping for sergeants rank and the right side stripe does have some damage to it near the top (see photos when posted). Of course if you don’t need sergeant’s striping these can be very easily removed.

These trousers feature side seam pockets, a right side watch pocket, split rear waistband without a tie-back cord, white cotton drill pockets & waistband facings, brown polished cotton fly facings, paperbacked tin buttons (5 large on the waistband and 3 smaller in the fly) plus rolled machine hemmed cuffs. The hems on these trousers were done by a modern tailor shop so they currently have a modern serged edge inside the cuff. This can be easily removed and replaced with hand hemming.

SKY BLUE WILLIAM DEERING TROUSERS.   SOLD!  #TT3830.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

TWO PAIR, SCHUYLKILL ARSENAL MOUNTED PATTERN TROUSERS. #RZ9265. Here we have two pair of partially completed Schuylkill Arsenal MOUNTED pattern trousers made in sky blue 100% wool. Being assembled by Stony Brook Company in their "Standard Grade" finish (principally machine sewn but w/ some hand sewn details). The two sizes available are:

42 & 48.

These trousers are about 50% complete and we will of course finish for the buyer to his respective sizes upon sale and at NO additional charge. Given that these are only partially assembled we can also do some alterations to size. If any of these trousers are of interest E-MAIL ME and let me know the size you need. I can then get back to you to let you know if they can be altered to the requested size. ALSO, given that we're VERY BUSY in the shop we'll need some time to be able to complete the work on any ordered pair.

Upon completion these trousers feature cotton drill side seam pockets & facings, an SA pattern right side watch pocket, split rear waistband w/ tie-back cord, rolled edge/machine felled mounted reinforcement panels, split faced & HAND hemmed cuffs plus paper backed tin buttons in the fly and for suspenders. On a construction note, the majority of the main body seam as well as the inseams are REVERSED as per original mounted pattern trousers. We do not install the undersole strap buttons in the cuffs on "Standard Grade" trousers unless specifically requested by the buyer. If you wish to have the undersole strap buttons there is a $5.00 charge (just to cover the cost of the eight small buttons).

These mounted trousers also feature a full cut (wide) upper leg as per the original pair we drafted our pattern from. Now I know some gentlemen will ask about tapering the legs but no, we cannot taper the leg on these trousers as that will severely distort the fit of the mounted reinforcement panels (been there, tried that, disaster).

. . . original mounted trousers w/ full cut legs

PHOTO NOTE: The trousers in the photos below are NOT any of these two trousers on consignment. The trousers in the photos show what these trousers will look like UPON COMPLETION. Swatches of the fabric the trousers (#RZ9265) are made from are available simply upon request and at no cost.

Price below is per pair, finished and ready to wear right out of the box.

OFFICER'S TROUSERS

 

PARTIALLY COMPLETED OFFICER TROUSERS. #ES5588. On hand is this partially completed pair of sky blue 100% wool officers trousers. Because they are partially completed we can easily change the dark blue (infantry) side seam welting to either scarlet for artillery or golden yellow for cavalry. These trousers are cut from sky blue 100% wool and currently measure in with a 46” waist. This can be very easily altered to buying customers specifications. One of the main features of these trousers are the top entry ("mule ear") pockets which are designed to button close. These trousers will be finished to “Museum Grade” specifications (machine sewn main seams but extensive hand finishing). When finished additional features will be (in addition to the buttoning top entry pockets) black internal cottons (we can change this out to WHITE cottons if desired), upper back panel lining, two rear adjustment belts w/ brass buckle, black tin buttons plus rolled hand hemmed cuffs. There is no watch pocket slated for these trousers.

TIME TABLE NOTE: We will need at least six (6) weeks easy to be able to get to and complete these trousers. We are VERY BUSY in the shop so we’ll need time to even get to this project. Then once started there’s a LOT of work involved in making these trousers. So please understand we’ll need at least six (6) weeks minimum from date of purchase to be able to get to and complete these trousers.

Finally, we made a pair of trousers identical to these partially completed ones about a year ago. With that the following photo group shows what these trousers will look like when completed. Just so we’re clear on this, the trousers in the following photos are NOT the ones listed above (these partially completed ones (#ES5588) are currently just cut-out panels) but what these trousers will look like once assembled and finished.

Now some of the guys may have questions about this buttoning top entry style pocket on Federal trousers. So with that I have included two photos below showing this pattern of buttoning pocket on original relic Federal officers trousers.

- These trousers are in the Visitor’s Center at Antietam Battlefield.
- Location unknown on these original infantry officer trousers. This photo was supplied by the gentleman who originally contracted with us for    the reproductions shown in Photos #1 and #2.

ENLISTED MAN'S TROUSERS

 

PARTIALLY COMPLETED C.S.MEDIUM SKY BLUE WOOL TROUSERS: Sale Pending  AMS2405 On hand is this pair of partially completed (about 15% assembled at this time) C.S. medium sky blue wool trousers (more on this color in C.S. service further below). The fabric used in these trousers is a blend of 85% wool - 15% synthetic fiber). These trousers are currently cut out as a size 48 but we can very easily alter to buyers personal sizes. These trousers are being made to "Standard Grade" specs (principally machine sewn but hand sewn button holes and some assorted hand tacking including hand hemmed cuffs)). However, at this early stage of assembly we can very easily finish them to “Museum Grade” specifications (machine sewn main seams but with extensive hand finishing. If interested in Museum Grade please E-MAIL ME and I can get back to you with an adjusted price quote.

Upon completion these trousers will feature side seam pockets - for those why may ask, side seam (“vertical entry”) pockets are perfectly authentic for CS trousers - , a right side watch pocket, two rear adjustment belt w/ a two tine brass buckle, black stipple faced tin buttons plus all internal cottons are white cotton drill (not muslin). The left and right rear trouser panels are one-piece - no separate upper yokes as found on Federal enlisted trousers. These trousers will be finished by SBC and will be ready to wear right out of the box when the buyer receives them.

Now a little more on this color of sky blue in CS service. We've had trousers identical to this color in the shop over the years and some gentlemen have asked if it is correct for Confederate service. In brief, Confederate 1861 regulations specified light blue (sky blue) as the color for trousers and there were limited quantities of light blue trousers made early in the war. However, for the most part light blue cloth was imported. This imported light blue cloth was a different shade from the pre-war U.S. sky blue. The light blue imported by the Confederacy was a shade called "light French blue" which was a darker sky blue than the Federal sky blue. This fabric (and color) is of course not to be confused with English imported royal blue - both yardage and finished trousers - used in Confederate service as the war progressed.

For color reference here’s a photo of a pair of trousers that was made from this medium sky blue fabric.

The price below is for these trousers finished to STANDARD GRADE SPECIFICATIONS

We recently finished up a pair of these trousers for a customer and this is what they'll look like when completed. Just to mention it, the buttons shown here are bone rather than the black tin mentioned above. The buyer supplied the bone buttons that he wished to be used on his trousers. Also, these trousers are coming out looking more charcoal gray-ish than brown. That's just the effect of the bright lights and camera flash as these trousers are indeed brown.

C.S. DARK KHAKI COLORED TROUSERS: #RC4231 Privately made using a dark khaki colored jean wool and measure in with a 42“ waist x 31“ length (as currently hemmed). The length can easily be lowered to 32 1/2” to 33” (33” w/ a tiny hem). These trousers are principally machine sewn but with ALL visible sewing (including top stitching) done BY HAND - including the button holes. All the internal seams have had the edges serged to prevent fraying. These trousers have been worn but remain in VERY GOOD condition. NO rips, tears repairs, or odors (smoke, sweat, etc) and no stains except for an approximately 5” long x 1” wide mark on the back of the right leg (behind the knee) that looks like candle wax (our speculation). A dry cleaner may be able to get that out. The only other point is some light fading around the bottom of the rolled-up cuffs. However, If the cuffs are rolled to the inside (they are currently rolled up to the outside of the leg) this faded area will then be up inside the leg and not visible from the outside. Meantime, these trousers feature top entry (“mule era”) pockets, stout oatmeal colored osnaburg pocket insets, waistband facings & fly facings, black stipple tin buttons ( 7 on the waistband and 3 in the fly) plus two rear adjustment belts w/ a black two-tine buckle.
