Who makes a decent, affordable CW major general frock coat?


Recommended Posts

Seems there a lot of sutlers and vendors of ACW union uniforms. Who makes an good reproduction of a major general's frock? It seems to me there were a lot of generals that wore basically the same frock (judging by photos) so having one would work for a multitude of displays. Thanks!

At one end of the spectrum is C&C Sutlery, which has a wide variety of officer/enlisted uniforms for both Union and Confederate re-enactors.

 

At the upper end is Quartermaster Shop, which also has both, but are much more expensive, but it also may be a matter of you get what you pay for.

 

There are also other suppliers that have limited selections.

Thanks! I have seen both of those sites, was hoping someone had some personal experience with either they could relate. Like are the C&C coats terrible? Are the Quartermaster ones spot-on perfect?

I have a civilian sack coat from C&C. I like it well enough. I haven't seen there frock coats, but I suspect they would work for what you are doing. Unless you are going to be wearing the coat and under close scrutiny, you probably don't need a Quartermaster Shop uniform.
