Civil War Era Boy's Confederate Wool Shell Jacket

Size - 34
Chest - 40 inches
Neck - 17 - 1/2 inches
Sleeve Length - 23 inches
Shoulder to Shoulder - 17 inches
Bottom of Neck to hem - 21 inches

Note: It is imortant to have 6 - 8 inches of ease (the difference between the person's chest measurement and the jacket chest measurement) to allow room for movement with a shirt and a vest under the jacket.

This jacket features a muslin lining and 2 inside breast pockets. There are 8 CSA Waterbury buttons down the front and 3 buttons on each sleeve. It is made of 21 ounce weight Woolrich Wool from their Civil War Line - #5102, Colonial Grey.

I personally hand craft this and all my other products. This jacket was sewn using a White Rotary circa 1914 and a Singer circa 1889 treadle sewing machines. The sleeve lining is hand stitched to the jacket lining. Only the button holes are stitched using a modern machine. My prices are comparable to imported pieces, but are far superior in materials, craftsmanship, and overall quality.

We use Woolrich's products because they are the only surviving company that provided wool during the Civil War. For more information on Woolrich and samples of their colors, click here: http://www.woolrichfabrics.com/mysql/civil.asp

We also use their wool because they, like us, provide a high quality product manufactured in the United States of America.
