The perfect civilian coat

When I dress for the 18th C i'm usually in uniform but there are sometimes i don't want to look like a soldier and this coat is perfect for that.

It's easier to move in than the wool coat (If I'm cold I can throw on a cloak) and the collar is more comfortable than the coats without a collar.

Excellent option to wool

I have 3 of these with one each in brown, blue and red linen. These are well made and beautiful items

Great looking coat

Received this coat last week. Wonderful workmanship, style, quality and comfort. Looking forward to wearing it in parades, SAR/DAR dedications and special events. Townsends IS the place to shop.
