NEW LISTING  CIVILIAN VEST & TROUSER SET. #DA7629. Both garments in this matching set are made from a medium shade of light weight brown wool and both are entirely machine sewn including button holes. Both of these items have been worn but remain in very good physical condition. This set was privately made. The two garments are a matching set and thus cannot be sold separately. Here are some specifics per garment:

. . . the set

VEST: Has a size 44 chest and will accommodate up to a 40” waist (as measured at navel level). Six wool covered buttons on the front and the wool is the same fabric as the vest itself. Also present are three vest style pockets, a white cotton body lining, plain black cotton back plus two rear adjustment belts w/ a small gun metal gray two-tine buckle. This vest does not have the full "shawl" pattern collar but is the style where the collar ends are sewn into the shoulder seam. There are some light sweat stains on the lining (along the inside bottom edge and particular around the arm holes (see lining photos)) but no physical problems (no rips, tear, repairs, etc).
. . .

 

TROUSERS: Measure in as a size 42" x 32" and have side seam main pockets and a right side watch pocket. Inside cottons are black. The waistband has a rear tie-back cord for slight size adjustment.

BLACK CIVILIAN SUIT SET. #RE9837 This size 48 black wool fine weave wool flannel civilian suit was made by Joe Blunt (48 frock & vest, X-LG shirt and 42” x 32” trousers). It is an older repro and has seen a fair amount of service. However, it remains in solid serviceable condition. There are some physical problems here and there and these are addressed in the individual descriptions below. There are some small stains here and there and a dry cleaning should take care of most of that. The set consists of as FROCK COAT, TROUSERS, VEST, PLEATED FRONT WHITE COTTON SHIRT and a BLACK CRAVAT. There’s going to be a lot of photos so we’re going to need some time on that project. However, we do have photos of the shirt and vest posted at this time. 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. Two if the same style buttons are on the rear tails (at the waistline). These is a 3/8" hole on the left sleeve. This appears to come from a burn mark. The sleeve lining under the hole is not effected. A good tailor shop should be able to professionally patch this hole from the inside. 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.

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)

. . . . . . (these 2 photos show the fiber damage)

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

TROUSERS: These trousers have seen some use but are still serviceable. They have two 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 as well. 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. Three vest pockets - two lower and one upper left breast. Two rear adjustment belts w/ a brass two tine buckle. A corner of the buckle frame (one side where the tines fit into) has broken off and was been repaired with a small piece of wire. Therefore, a new buckle (available at most sutlers) is very highly recommended. 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. There is aslo 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). Finally, there are some light stains on the right side adjustment belt from where the buckle was set. There is also a very tiny hole starting on this belt as well. 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 these out. There are a few 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: Under the arms (in the pit area) are a couple tiny holes. 3: 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, or, a seamstress can replace the cuff (or both of them if you're so inclined). 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.

COATS

 

BROWN COTTON FROCK COAT. SOLD!   #WN7736.

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

BROWN WOOL DOUBLE BREASTED FROCK COAT. On Temporary Hold   #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 boutonnière (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.

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

BROWN-ON-TAN HOUNDSTOOTH WOOL FLANNEL TROUSERS. #EJ4900. These trousers were started by a private party but the project never completed. So what we have here is a partially completed pair of dark brown-on-tan lightweight wool civilian pattern trousers w/ a full length cotton lining. They measure in with a 49" waist size but we can easily alter here at the shop and at no additional charge. The wool is a lightweight hounds tooth pattern wool flannel (90% Wool - 10% synthetic fiber according to the seller). Given the light weight these trousers are best reserved for dress occasions or non-field events. They are great for the ball room but too lightweight to endure the rigors of field campaigning.

Upon completion these trousers will feature (in addition to the full length cotton lining) side seam pattern main pockets, a right side watch pocket, light brown polished cotton left side fly facings, white cotton drill pocket bags & all remaining facings, two rear adjustment belts w/ a two-tine brass buckle plus black stipple tin buttons- seven medium size on the waistband and five smaller in the fly. These trousers have been started to "Standard Grade" specifications (principally machine sewn but w/ hand sewn button holes) and will be completed as such.

BLACK CIVILIAN TROUSERS. SOLD!   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.

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.

HATS

 

DARK BLUE CIVILIAN CAP. #LB5429. This is not a "mechanics cap" which are very similar to the 1839 Army wheel hat but rather a soft woolen cap w/ a leather visor. The style is often seen in period baseball artwork. The pattern for this cap was taken from an original worn by Lt. Charleron of the Washington Artillery. Size is 7 5/8 to 7 ¾ . Made from a lightweight dark blue wool flannel and features a six-piece body w/ a separate side band. Has a six point star made from the same fabric as the cap sewn to the top, The visor is a natural color leather in a crescent cut. This cap is unlined. Maker unknown. Has been worn a couple times but remains in great shape.

Size 6 7/8 - 7 (measures 22" around the sweatband). This hat has seen its fair share of service and while in very good condition physically, it has some light stains or marks here and there on the hat body ( please take a close look at all the photos). The hat band and brim edge binding originally stated life as a light brown color but has faded to the current dark tan color. With that said, the hat itself was probably a slightly darker shade of gray when new (our speculation). Lined in a tan/maroon check cotton shirting w/ a muslin crown lining. Stamped on the crown lining is "J.M. HOLBROOK, hat manufacturer, Atlanta, Georgia. Has an oxblood colored hand sewn sweatband (which shows a little wear).

SHOES

CANVAS & LEATHER CIVILIAN SHOES. #BC8821 Oiginally 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.

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.

KNITTED SUSPENDERS. #RC6335 Maker unknown on these hand knitted oatmeal colored wool yarn suspenders. These measure 2“ wide by 42“ long, have been used and have two small areas of yarn damage. Nothing unraveling though but a little needlework repair (like darning) on these two areas would be helpful to prevent possible future problems. There are opening in the knitting for button holes on one end of the suspenders but none on other end. So I’m not sure how they worked. :-). However, if you can make a nice hand sewn button hole, the front opening can be reinforced by that and holes added to the back. However, I must state that the button holes would have to be worked nice and tight to avoid any fraying once you cut them open. If you make hand sewn button holes like me (kinda 50/50 at best) better to find someone who can do a better job at it for durability sake.

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
