JB '64 Frockcoat

 
Hood's 1864 Double Breasted Frock in Dark Cadet Grey Wool

Hood's 1864 Uniform is a dark shade of Blue Grey wool, sometimes called "English cloth" since the imported wool seemed to be a darker shade than many of the earlier domestic (cadet) blue greys. We import this beautiful wool from Germany and our reproduction faithfully duplicates the buff piping on the top of the collar, cuff point, front edges and tail flaps. The collar features our Extra Rich Confederate Generals Wreath and Stars badge. Black Cotton Lining with Natural Sleeve linings. Buttons are sewn on in the 3 x 3 arrangement on the front. The Confederate Staff Buttons are standard with the US General Staff Buttons available at extra cost. Four rows of gold soutache sleeve braid. Three small buttons on the closed cuff for decoration.  Raw bottom edge per original coat. Made in USA! Wool imported from Germany.

Three of Hood's original coats are in the Musuem of the Confederacy in Richmond, VA. All are identical except for the style of buttons.

All Famous Confederates Uniforms are custom made. Correct measurements are extremely important. Because we cannot accept returns on custom clothing, please visit the measurements page and submit your measurements when you order.
