'85 Officer Foot Trousers

#8540 M-1885 Officer's FOOT TROUSERS (please scroll down for mounted version.)

In 1885 the US Army adopted a somewhat darker shade of "sky blue" for Line Officer's Trousers trousers. Often called Medium Blue, it is closer to a Royal Blue in color. It was hoped by the Uniform Board that this slightly dark shade would eliminate the wide variations in color that existed in the lighter Civil War era sky blue wool. Reports indicate that for the most part, even dye lots of this new color varied greatly. Our Model 1885 trousers for Line Officers (Artillery, Cavalry and Infantry) are made from this new Medium Blue 20 ounce field service wool.

Generals and Staff Officers continued to wear Dark Blue trousers matching their uniform coats. From 1872 thru 1900, these officers trousers were to be plain- without stripe or pipe.

The Model 1885 Trousers were used until 1898 when a second back pocket was added.

Made in the USA!

Indian War and Span-Am War uniforms are custom made for each order. Could take 5 weeks for delivery.
