CIVILIAN VESTS

PLUM COLOR VELVETEEN CIVILIAN VEST. #EH7399. Maker unknown on this freshly dry cleaned plum colored size 44/46 civilian pattern vest. We do believe this vest started life as a 46 but some of the upper buttons were moved in to get a better fit for a 44” chested gentleman. However, the buttons can be moved over a little to take this back out to a size 46 if needed. This vest has been worn a couple times but remains in excellent++ physical condition all around! NO rips, tears, repairs, etc. There are a couple very small marks or stains on the inside (see photos) but these are indeed very minor.

The vest body is a dark plum color velveteen fabric that has petite maroon/lavender/dark gold ornate pattering. It has a falling collar with lapels, six small ornate pewter buttons on the front plus two lower vest style pockets. The lining is a lightweight white cotton twill and there is a horizontal pocket on the upper left side. The vest back is black polished cotton back and there are two black polished cotton adjustment belts w/ three black metal grommets for lace-up adjusting. A new (longer) adjustment cord or some 1/4" twill tape would be very helpful. This vest is principally machine sewn but has some hand stitching inside on the lining. Definitely a sharp looking item. Oh yes, need to mention that like all velvet-type fabrics the sheen varies in different light settings. So with that the vest is a little darker than shown in the following photos. The camera flash has brightened things up a little.

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

SHOULDERS: 19” (as measured shoulder-to-shoulder across the back)
FRONT LENGTH; 18 1/2“ (base of collar to front bottom hem)
BACK LENGTH: 20” (base of collar in the back to rear bottom hem)

This shirt is in EXCELLENT condition all round but there is some of the usual light fraying on the raw body seam edges (such as after a shirt is laundered). This shirt features a falling collar, 3-button front plaquet, 1-button collar, underarm gussets, side seam splits plus 1-button gathered cuffs.

These shirts are USED but remain in very good to excellent condition. These were washed before being sent in. Individual details per shirt are given below. The sizes given means that particular shirt will fit an individual with “up to but not larger than” those specific measurements for chest, collar and sleeve.

Please check these measurements against your own respective sizes to insure the shirt you are interested will fit - most especially the sleeves! Lastly, the bodies of these shirts are NOT cut long.

As indicated above, these trousers are being made to "Standard Grade" specifications and upon completion will feature side seam pockets, a right side watch pocket, two rear adjustment belts w/ a two-tine brass buckle, white cotton drill pockets & facings, black polished cotton left side fly facings, plus black stipple tin buttons in the fly and waistband (3/4” on the waistband and 1/2” in the fly). The wool used in a wool blend - 85% wool and 15% synthetic fiber.

PARTIALLY COMPLETED MAROON WOOL FLANNEL CIVILIAN TROUSERS: #AMS4638. On hand are TWO pair of partially completed (about 50% done) lightweight maroon colored wool flannel trousers under the needle to "Standard Grade" specifications (principally machine sewn but w/ hand sewn button holes and some assorted hand tacking). Sizes are listed below. We can alter the waist and set the length to buyers specs at no extra charge. The wool flannel used in these trousers was pre-shrunk prior to these trousers being cut out. Upon completion these trousers will feature a white cotton drill upper back panel lining, white cotton drill waistband facings & pockets, black polished cotton left side fly panels, black cotton drill right side fly panel, two rear adjustment belts w/ brass two tine buckle, right side watch pocket plus black stipple tin buttons. We need to mention again that the fabric is a lightweight wool flannel and therefore these trousers are best suited for light duty ONLY (dances, ball room profiling and light duty civvy work as such). They will NOT hold up well under the rigors of field campaigning if you are considering these for C.S. service.

"A" - 46" waist
"B" - 38" waist

PARTIALLY COMPLETED HOUNDSTOOTH PATTERN 100% WOOL TROUSERS.   #AMS7542. Here’s a pair of partially completed tan & brown houndstooth pattern 100% wool civilian trousers. The fabric is a lightweight pre-shrunk wool flannel and just the ticket for civilian wear during those killer hot summer days (like Manassas 2011!). Size is 44" waist x unfinished ength but we can alter the waist and/or set the length to buyers specifications at no extra charge. If alterations are needed please allow us some time to get to and complete that work. If you have any questions on that please e-mail me BEFORE you buy.

These trousers are being made to "Standard Grade" specifications (principally machine sewn but w/ hand sewn buttonholes plus some assorted hand finishing). Upon completion these trousers will feature side seam pockets, a right side watch pocket, two rear adjustment belts w/ a two-tine brass buckle, white cotton drill pockets, white cotton drill waistband facings & right side fly facing, brown polished cotton left side fly facings plus black stipple faced tin buttons. The upper portion of these trousers are lined in muslin to give some additional body (support) to the lightweight wool fabric. Also, if we set the length for the buyer the cuffs will be rolled and hand hemmed. Work was started by a private maker but will be finished by Stony Brook Company.

Once again we wish to point out that the wool used to make these trousers is a lightweight wool flannel. Just the ticket for ballroom profiling (lol!) or civilian work where there’s very little wear and tear. But these are definitely NOT for any C.S. field service as they simply will not hold up for any length of time – and certainly not the rigors of “campaigner” type service.

FABRIC NOTE: While this fabric has been pre-shrunk, these trousers cannot be washed in water. These are a DRY CLEAN ONLY pair of trousers.

BLACK CIVILIAN TROUSERS. #KC4630. These privately made 46” x 30” trousers are constructed from a modern suit fabric - a white pin stripe black wool blend (probably a 50/50 blend of wool & synthetic fiber) and are BRAND NEW NEVER WORN. The waist can be let out an additional 1" via a tie-back lace and the current length of 30” is UNHEMMED. With a small hem on the leg the maximum finished length will be just around 29” max. These trousers are fully lined in unbleached muslin and most of the raw edges inside have been gone over with a machine zig-zag stitch to help prevent fraying. These trousers are principally machine sewn but have hand sewn button holes and hand felling along the bottom of the reinforced dark blue cotton waistband facings. There is also some hand felling on the right side muslin fly facing. The left side fly panel that has the button holes is made from dark blue wool flannel and there is hand tacking between each button hole (helps keep the panel closed). Rounding out these trousers are side seam pattern muslin pockets, five small Mother-of-Pearl buttons in the fly, a small front waistband button that appears to be gutta percha plus six 3/4" simulated (synthetic composition) horn buttons on the waistband for the suspenders. No watch pocket is present. Finally, we can set the length to buyers specifications (29” or less) at no additional charge.

CIVILIAN HATS & CAPS
(Also see CAPS & HATS in the military section.)

BLACK “SUGARLOAF CROWN” CIVILIAN HAT. Sale Pending #MC7380 . Made by Dirty Billy this size 7 3/8 (measures 22 1/2“ around the sweatband) black fur/felt civvy hat is Dirty Billy’s #C11 “Sugarloaf Crown” item. This hat has been worn a couple times but remains in very nice condition all round. Does have a couple very light / very minor stains or marks on the brim and two VERY tiny white marks on the crown. Other than that this hat is in really nice condition all round! The crown height is 4 3/4“ and the bound edge brim is 3 1/4“ wide. Inside we have a dark blue & tan check cotton shirting liner w/ a white cotton crown lining. Stamped on the crown lining is “S. BUSH Manufacturer, Forestville, Shenandoah Co. Va.”. A 2” wide black leather hand sewn sweatband rounds out this hat.

MECHANIC’S CAP/WHEEL HAT. #BC1742. Made by Ben Jenkins & Co. this white cotton mechanic’s cap/wheel hat is a size 7 3/8. It measures 23 3/4” around the sweatband and while that equates to a hat size of around a 7 5/8, still, I wear a verified 7 3/8 cap and this hat fits me just fine. This hat stretches a little because it’s all cotton as well as being soft sided (no internal sideband reinforcement). So it probably could stretch to fit a 7 5/8 hat size. However, I don’t recommend that so I am listing this cap as a size 7 3/8 for a comfortable fit.

This cap has been worn but remains in great physical condition (no rips, tears, repairs, etc.). There are some light dirt marks on the sideband of the hat and the leather visor - being natural undyed leather - is showing some dirt marks on its surface (top and bottom) from handling. The dirt smudges on the side band will most likely wash out with a little localized soap and water cleaning (no man, don't throw this in the washing machine :-) As for the visor, I don’t work with leather but this might?? be able to be cleaned up a little bit using some type of leather cleaner. Other than that though this cap is in very nice physical shape! As for construction details this cap is made from a medium weight white cotton fabric (something akin to a soft cotton duck) and has a small crescent cut (same shape as the 1839 Type I Mexican War caps but not as big) natural colored leather visor. No chin strap of any type. Inside we have a blue/tan check cotton shirting lining and a hand sewn 2” wide black leather sweatband. No marks, stamps or label.

CIVILIAN SHOES

BROWN & WHITE CIVILIAN SIZE 10 C (Narrow) SHOES. #BC1035: These originally come from Ben Jenkins (as per info from the seller) and are a lace-up brown leather w/ white canvas sides pattern. These shoes have seen some use. The canvas elements have discoloration and the leather pieces have some wrinkles, scuffs and dings (all the usual stuff). The soles and heels show wear but nothing broken and no holes developing. All stitches are tight. With some TLC such as shoe polish or leather oil/leather cream to soften up and revive the leather, and some "Sneaker White" on the canvas pieces (to whiten them up again) these shoes could put in a decent appearance. No heel plates. All machine sewn.

Yeah, count me in on that more than once. :-/

TWO COTTON APRONS: #KM7472. Available are two (these are being sold as a pair) cotton aprons that were used in a vievandiere impression. These aprons have been used but remain in really great condition all round. Here are the details per:

APRON w/ LACE TRIM - Made with two pieces (double thick) of unbleached muslin and has a waistband that extends into rear ties. Heavily pleated across the front. Lace is a heavy cotton. Has some stains on the front. These may come out with some careful laundering (pre-wash spray then detergent w/ bleach wash). In great physical condition (no rips, tears, repairs, etc). This is a small apron measuring in at 17 1/2” top to bottom. It is approximately 13” across the top section and 29” across the bottom. The ties are 57” long end to end. Accounting for a knot in the back these would probably fit up to a 36” waist size.

APRON; Plain - Made with two pieces (double thick) of unbleached muslin and has a waistband that extends into rear ties. Heavily pleated across the front. In great physical condition (no rips, tear, repairs, etc). This is a small apron measuring in at 18” top to bottom. It is approximately 18” across the top section and 29” across the bottom. The ties are 60” long end to end. Accounting for a knot in the back these would probably fit up to a 38” waist size.

ONE SHOULDER SCALE: #JB9011. This piece is from a sutler's display board and so there is is only ONE. So what we have here is one brass shoulder scale (not the NCO model) still in its sealed pouch. Comes with attaching hardware. Good for replacing a missing or damaged piece.

MATCH TINS or CASES. #JB1009. Small rectangular tin boxes with a sliding lid made by The Village Tinsmith. These measure 2 1/2" long x 1 1/2" wide and have a 1" course area on the case side for striking the match. These are all brand new and never used but are old shelf stock. They do have some scuffs and/or marrs on the bright tin finish from being moved around in storage and a couple tiny areas of surface rust. Other than that though these tins are in very good condition (no dents or dings). Stamped on the back is what I would classify as a backwards "JB" and the word "maker" below that. I believe this is the makers mark of The Village Tinsmith.

PERCUSSION CAP TINS w/ PERIOD LABELS. #JB1265. These are available in both LARGE and SMALL sizes. Pretty much like your basic 3/4" deep x 1 1/2" diameter percussion cap tins like you buy your caps in but a little better made and with period labels on the top. The large tin labels read "GOLDMARK PERC. CAPS. U.S. MUSKET CAPS, 100, Warrented Waterproof. New Haven, Conn. 1862". The small tins (1/2" deep x 1 1/2" in diameter) are identical in style as the larger tins and their labels read "ELEY BROs Manufacturing, London.

SPECIAL LOT OF CONSIGNED PATTERNS AND FABRIC REMNANTS FOLLOW

BROWN-ON-TAN HOUNDSTOOTH WOOL FLANNEL. #AMS2780. On hand is this remnant piece of brown-on-tan houndstooth pattern wool flannel. This fabric is 100% wool, measures in at 30” wide (folded) x 2 & 7/8” yard long and weighs in right around 8 oz per yard (lightweight). This is fresh clean fabric from the end of a bolt. Would work nice for a civilian sack coat or a vest. Price below is for the full piece (owner will not cut it). This wool is NOT pre-shrunk. We would recommend doing this prior to making any garment. After any pre-shrinking you’ll probably end up with right around 2 & 3/8 to 2 1/2 yards.

HARRIET'S TCS PATTERNS

JACKET PATTERN:   Going by the text accompanying this pattern, it will make your BASIC OFFICER or ENLISTED MAN'S SHORT JACKET, as well as an ARTILLERY/CAVALRY MOUNTED SERVICES ("shell") JACKET and also a "BUMMER JACKET" (as printed which is just your basic roundabout style jacket). One of the breast pattern pieces references "frock coat" but given that the breast patterns for the above jackets as well as frock coats are almost identical the pattern maker simply copied a pre-existing frock coat breast pattern piece to go with this short jacket pattern. If you're handy with a tape measure and tailoring chalk you could probably draw out a skirt piece and use this pattern to make a basic frock coat as well.

WOMAN’S BALLGOWN (Early - Mid 1860's). Sizes 20-22-24. Uncut; with instructions
