SUIT SETS

BLACK CIVILIAN SUIT SET. #RE9837 This size 48 black wool fine weave wool flannel civilian suit was made by Joe Blunt (frock, vest & 42” x 32” trousers). It is an older repro and has seen a fair amount of service. However, it remains in solid serviceable condition. The only actual physical problems are: a couple small patches in the crotch of the trousers, some minor issues on the vest lining (easily repaired) and finally two small repairs on the shirt by the underarms and some small fraying on one cuff. A dry cleaning would take care of a lot of the small stains here and there. The set consists of as FROCK COAT, TROUSERS, VEST, PLEATED FRONT WHITE COTTON SHIRT and a BLACK CRAVAT. We are in the process of getting photos taken of this set and will post them here as soon as we complete that work. There’s going to be a lot of photos so we’re going to need some time on that project. Meantime, here are the fine details per item:

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

FROCK COAT: Made in a fine weave black wool flannel and features a four- button single breasted front w/ a lay-down collar and lapels. The collar and lapels are heavily quilted on the underside. Buttons are 3/4” black cotton covered which started life as solid black but have taken on a more charcoal color from age. No physical damage though. Two if the same style buttons are on the rear tails (at the waistline). The cuffs are plain and without buttons. The bottom skirt hem is raw. Inside we have a full length black polished cotton body lining w/ white cotton sleeve linings, padded/quilted breast panels and a horizontal cut upper left breast pocket. There is a little bit of damage in the corner of the breast pocket but can be fixed with a little needlework. There are two tail pockets in the skirt lining and the pocket insets are blue striped cotton shirting (not ticking). The skirt lining is fully hand hemmed. As a matter of fact there is a LOT of hand stitching in this frock coat! :-) Button holes are hand sewn of course. There are a couple very tiny stains on the coat (we actually missed them the first time we looked the coat over) and some sweat stains on the sleeve linings at the arm holes and at the cuffs. No physical damage though.

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

CHEST: 48"
SHOULDER-TO-SHOULDER: 20” (as measured shoulder to shoulder across the upper back)
SLEEVE / ARM: 27 1/2" (as measured from the outer edge of the shoulder to the cuff)
WAIST: 40" (will fit individual w/ up to a 40" waist line (as measured at navel level) comfortably)
FRONT LENGTH TO WAIST: 19" (base of collar to waistline)
FRONT LENGTH TOTAL: 39" (base of collar to front bottom hem.)
BACK LENGTH TO WAIST: 20" (base of collar (center back) to waistline)
BACK LENGTH TOTAL: 40" (base of collar (center back) to bottom hem)
ARMPIT TO ARMPIT: 25 1/2" (not an actual point of measurement in tailoring but a lot of guys ask for it)

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

TROUSERS: These trousers are in overall nice condition but have some wear and repairs in the crotch. Two small black wool patches have been sewn in the crotch to cover two 1 1/2” (+/-) circular holes there. There is also some light pilling in the crotch but no further damage. Lastly, there are some stains on the pocket inserts but no physical damage.

These black wool flannel trousers are a mix of machine and hand sewing and measure in w/ a 42“ waist x 32“ length. Featured are side seam pattern pockets, a horizontal cut right side watch pocket plus two rear adjustment belts w/ a brass two tine buckle. Buttons are a mix with four small paperbacked tin in the fly and seven (one to close the waistband and six for suspender attachment) on the waistband. The waistband buttons are a gloss black material (could be black plastic). The waistband facings, right side fly facing and pocket inserts are blue striped white cotton shirting (not ticking). The upper back portion of these trousers are lined in muslin. The cuffs are rolled and hand hemmed and the inside front portion of the legs just above the cuffs is lined in a stout off-white cotton (like a heavyweight osnaburg).

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

VEST: This size 48” vest will fit individual with up to a 44” waistline comfortably. Single breasted rolled collar/lapel pattern made in a fine weave black wool flannel. The underside of the lapels and collar is black polished cotton. There are five small black cloth covered buttons down the vest front. Due to age these buttons have taken on a charcoal color at this point; no physical damage though. Three vest pockets - two lower and one upper left breast. Two rear adjustment belts w/ a brass two tine buckle. Inside we have a “cranberry & tan” check cotton shirting lining. The lining has two small areas that could benefit from a little needle work. One is a tiny fray that is starting near the center back. A little darning should secure that with no problem. The second is a 2” inch tear on the lining seam line at the upper left shoulder. Here again, with a little TLC and some needle work, this can be repaired. Finally, there is a tiny mark on the lining - middle of the back ranging at the waistline. Not sure what may have caused that and it could also have been a blemish on the fabric when the cloth was purchase (that’s been known to happen). See photos when posted of all this. This vest is entirely machine sewn except for hand sewn button holes.

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

SHIRT: In modern shirt size of this shirt will fit an individual with up to an 18” neck x 41” sleeve (sleeve as measured from the center of the back of the neck, over the shoulder and down to the wrist. The cuffs are a close fit and will not fall down on the hand. So when the cuffs are buttoned any excess sleeve length will gather up on the arm. This white pleated front dress shirt is made from a fine weave high grade white cotton (Egyptian or Pima). It has some light stains on it, particularly around the collar and cuffs. Not bad and something perhaps a dry cleaning could get out. There are a couple points of physical damage on this shirt: 1: there are two small repairs (approx. 2” long) under the arms that extend out on the chest area. 2: about a 1” length of the right cuff’s folded edge has worn through. Some small finely done stitch-work here would help prevent any further fraying. While this shirt has the main seams sewn by machine, all the body and sleeve seems are rolled and hand felled - and just to mention it, there is a LOT of hand stitching in this shirt. I must say that these hand stitches are some of the most petite finely done work that I have seen; and the button holes are beyond fantastic! So this shirt was a real beauty and a text book example of superb craftsmanship in its younger day!!! Rounding out this shirt is a falling pattern collar, reinforced scalloped cut side seam splits, upper back (shoulder) yoke, lightly gathered sleeves & cuffs, plus small shell (looks like shell) buttons for the collar/front plaquet and the cuffs.

CRAVAT: Not sure of the maker but could be a Corner Clothiers item. Black pre-folded polished cotton with a small two-tine buckle for adjustment. Will adjust up to a 19” neck max. In great condition and probably a recent addition to this set.

BROWN WOOL DOUBLE BREASTED FROCK COAT. #BC5509. Worn just a couple times this size 44 civilian frock coat remains in great condition (!) and was freshly dry cleaned before being sent in. Made from a lightweight brown wool flannel and is entirely machine sewn including button holes. Three outside flap covered pockets (two lower and one upper left). Four 1" brown wooden buttons per side down the front. There is a fifth button hole on the upper left lapel but this would best be reserved for a boutonničre (probably the maker’s original intention). Rolled collar & lapels. Fully lined in brown polished cotton w/ the sleeves lined in fine white cotton. Just to note, the sleeve linings are a little long and have a tendency to protrude a little out of the ends of the sleeves (at the cuffs). A couple quick mid-sleeve tacks would take care of this. Cuffs are plain without buttons. There is a small plastic bag in one of the pockets with three spare wooden buttons. Speaking of the buttons, the owner removed these prior to sending the coat in for the dry cleaning. He then reattached them when he got the coat back (the dry cleaning process can crack wooden buttons). Maker Unknown.

Meantime, here are some specifics per shirt.

SHIRT “A”: The neck opening on this shirt is cut wide (27”) but if a dart is sewn into the back of the neck or two on each side of the neck (or in all three locations if needed) that will reduce the size of this opening if needed. Has a small front plaque with a 1 1/8” wide simulated (synthetic) bone button for closing. Sleeves are plain without cuffs but do have a 2” split at the ends. Small side seam splits are also present. Fully hemmed across the bottom but the main body and sleeve seams are raw. No stains and no damage.

Here are some additional measurements. Please check these against your own specific sizes to insure this shirt will work for you.

NECK OPENING: 27”
SLEEVE : 34 1/2” (as measured for modern shirts - center of the back of the neck, over the shoulder and down to the bottom of the cuff)
FRONT LENGTH: 29“ ( base of the collar down to the front bottom hem)

Has a front plaque with three 3/4” wide wooden buttons for closing. Sleeves are plain without cuffs but do have a 2” split at the ends. Just to mention it these sleeves are a long but if you’re handy with a sewing machine they can be recut and shorted at the cuffs if needed. Small side seam splits are also present. Fully hemmed across the bottom but the main body and sleeve seams are raw. Has a number of pin head sized grayish stains on the upper left chest area.

WHITE COTTON SHIRT. #WN2988. Has been worn but freshly laundered prior to being sent in. However, some stains remain on the collar and round the cuffs. No major physical damage though (no rips, tears, repairs, etc) but has some light fraying j-u-s-t starting on the front edges of the cuffs. A quick pass on the sewing machine to run a seam line close to the cuff edge will help stabilize this.

All buttons are white shell except for two on the front plaque which are small white plastic (replacements). Sleeves are plain with 1-button gathered cuffs.

TWO MUSLIN SHIRTS. #KC4244. Maker unknown on these two unbleached muslin shirts (being sold individually) but they did come from sutler row. Both these shirts will fit up to a 44” chest but do check out some minor differences in the collar, sleeve, and body length (SHIRT “B” is a tiny bit smaller). Here’s the breakdown per shirt:

SHIRT “A”: SOLD!   Brand new never worn and in EXCELLENT condition all round. Features a falling collar, 3-button front plaquet, 1-button collar, underarm gussets, side seam splits plus 1-button gathered cuffs. Buttons are synthetic material and measure 3/4" in diameter. This shirt is entirely machine sewn including button holes.

Here are some additional measurements for SHIRT “A”. Please check these against your own respective sizes to insure this shirt will fit you satisfactorily.

. . . SHIRT “A”

SHIRT “B”: Sale Pending   This shirt has been worn but was recently dry cleaned plus pressed by the dry cleaner. It does have some small marks in the upper left shoulder area but we suspect these are from sitting on the shelf where these shirts were stored. 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. Buttons are synthetic material and measure 3/4" in diameter. This shirt is entirely machine sewn including button holes.

Here are some additional measurements for SHIRT “B”. Please check these against your own respective sizes to insure this shirt will fit you satisfactorily.

COLLAR: 18” (18" on the shirt so will fit a 17” to 17 1/2” neck comfortably)

ASSORTED WHITE COTTON SHIRTS: #DS7761 Two white cotton shirts remaining in this lot. From sutler’s row. Plain white cotton, pull-over style, completely machine-sewn and both have the falling style collars. 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. Sleeve is measured from the center of the back of the neck, over the shoulder and down to the bottom edge of the cuff. 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. So if you are tall or wear “tall” cut clothing these shirts will not fit you well as for body length. I'll get some photos as soon as we can.

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.

PLATES & BUCKLES

ASSORTMENT OF U.S. & C.S. PLATES. #SH9803. These plates have seen extensive service and have their share of light dings and/or scrapes plus a couple with deep heavy patinas (these have been in storage for quite a while). However, these should all clean up a little with some polish & elbow grease. I very much doubt they’ll clean up to “like new” condition but should clean up enough to put in at least a serviceable appearance in the end. All are stamped brass fronts w/ lead filled backs (except the Ga. frame & the tongue & groove of course). Order by letter. Here’s what we have:

A:   C.S. CARTRIDGE BOX PLATE. Mounting loops in back are slightly bent so would need to be straightened out … $3.00

B:   Georgia Frame Buckle. Good shape. … $8.00

SOLD!   CS Tongue & Wreath Plate w/ “CSA”. Heavy patina. There is a “TA” cast in the back so this is NOT a Hanover Brass product … $5.00

D:   “H.R.” (Hempfield Rifles (Arkansas) Waist Belt Plate. Shield shape. 3 heavy brass wire prongs for mounting. As I have been told by the seller the “H.R.” stands for the HEMPFIELD RIFLES, an outfit out of Arkansas. He wasn’t able to offer any additional details and I have not been able to find anything online. … $10.00 (we have a buff waistbelt on consignment with an identical plate)

E:   U.S. Eagle Cartridge Box Sling Plate. Mounting loops in back are slightly bent so would need to be straightened out … $3.00

NEW LISTING  OFFICER’S SASH. #SL2565   Claret colored officers knit sash. Has been worn a couple times and remains in overall excellent condition. No fraying, runs, rips tears or repairs but does have two very tiny “picks” or pulls on the body. These are very small indeed and so much so that we missed them the first time we looked this sash over. The sash body measures 113” long and each tassel end is 7 1/ 2” long. So a total “tip to tip” length of 128”.

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
