The 1872 US Army Uniform Regulations stated that Line Officers (Artillery, Cavalry and Infantry) were to wear Sky Blue trousers. Generals and Staff Officers continued to wear Dark Blue trousers. However, the 1/8" gold welt worn by Staff Officers was deleted completely. From 1872 thru 1900, these officers trousers were to be plain- without stripe or pipe.
All Indian War uniforms are custom made for each order. Could take 5 weeks for delivery. Because custom orders are not returnable, please visit our measurement page, and submit your measurements.
