CS Cadet General's Frockcoat

Double-breasted coat with standard collar badge in optional Cadet Grey wool with optional gold sleeve braid.


is double breasted and made from our quality wool or wooljean fabrics. The Regulation trim color for Confederate General's was Buff. From original coats observed at various museums today, the color "buff" varied greatly from an off-white (which we use) to an almost tan color. The basic coat includes solid faced collar, cuffs, rear pocket flaps and front edge piping, and our CS General’s standard collar insignia badge. Additionally, Four rows of our Deluxe Gold braid on the sleeves is available at extra cost.

The coat body is lined with black cotton and the sleeve linings are natural cotton. An inside left breast pocket and hidden pockets in the folds of the skirt with flaps are included. Sleeves are tube style (non-functional) with 3 small buttons per cuff for decoration.  The skirt is left unhemmed as were most originals, except on Wooljean fabric.  Coats made from Wooljean are hemmed to prevent raveling.

When the Confederate Army Uniform Regulations were adopted in 1861, only the rank of Brigadier General was listed and the button arrangement was 16 buttons placed in four sets of two- as seen in the top photo at left. A year later, when the additional ranks of Major Gen'l, Lieut Gen'l and full General were added, no changes were made to the Regulation button pattern or the collar insignia to reflect the new ranks. Consequently, some Generals above the rank of Brigadier ordered uniforms with a 3 by 3 button pattern as used by the "Old Army"- (the US Army) to reflect the higher rank. 

Made in the USA!
