PETER TAIT CONTRACT JACKET- (Probable issue period Summer of 1864 through end of War). 

Although similar to the Richmond Depot style and most probably issued from that Depot, Tait Jackets were imported from the firm of Peter Tait in Limerick, Ireland and have some unique features. Made with 21oz Tait Grey Kersey wool, the jackets all feature a five piece body, 2 piece sleeves and 8 button front. They are lined with linen and have an inside left breast pocket. Each Tait jacket listed below has the specific collar shape that was used on that particular style jacket. The square front and distinctive double right side stitching and natural colored buttonhole thread are featured. 

Several different versions of Tait jackets have been found to date possibly indicating different manufacturing locations in Ireland.

  • #1330 jacket (not pictured) is all Tait grey without shoulder straps. 
  • #1331 jacket (not pictured) is all Tait grey with same color shoulder straps added. 
  • #1335 jacket (top left picture) is Tait grey with a solid French Blue collar and without shoulder straps. 
  • #1335R jacket (not pictured) with solid red collar only and Block "A" buttons and without shoulder straps.
  • #1336 jacket (middle left picture) is Tait grey with solid French Blue collar and Shoulder Straps.
  • #1336R jacket (not pictured) with solid red collar and straps, with Block "A" Btns.
  • #1339 jacket (lower left picture) is grey with the top edge of the grey collar and edge of the grey shoulder straps being piped in French Blue. So many choices!
