Please note that all prices have increased.


I'm offering a line of ready to wear breeches in two styles: Venetians (16th century) and Dutch Slops. Breeches will done in wool with muslin lining. Right now I am making them in four sizes with a 7” adjustable lacing placket in the back. They are listed as Medium (32” to 39” waist), Large (37” to 44” waist), X-Large (42" to 49" waist) and a XX-Large (47" to 54" waist).

The breeches at present are available in the light weight wool colors of Black, Brown, Grey, Olive Green and Walnut Green. They are also available in the heavy weight wool colors of Madder Red, Brown, Rupert's Blue, Black, Hodden Grey, Bright Blue, Light Grey and Hunter Green. They will also be available in linen in the colors of Black, Brown and (possibly) Navy. Contact me regarding other colors I might have in stock. Please note when ordering that all clothing will be made to order with normal delivery delays (unless otherwise noted by me when you call or email).



Pleas note these are 16th century breeches and are worn on the hips. There is a 2”wide waistband, bead buttons, 7 button fly and matching tie garters built in to the knee bands. These breeches are more fitted than slops and sit primarily on the natural waist. **Please note that X-Large and XX-Large Venetians will not available. This is due to the cut of the breeches.

All coats are made according to the pattern for the “conjectural coat” on page 24 of Common Soldiers Clothing of the Civil Wars 1639-1646: Volume 1: Infantry . They have the winged shoulders, 2” standing collar, and wood bead buttons. Please specify if you need ties (New Model).

Please email or call before ordering, since the sizing of these coats is not the modern dress coat sizes. These coats are based on neck/chest size and you may take a larger size than you think in order to wear it comfortably. Additionally, the fit will also depend on whether your unit wears a wool lining or a fustian lining. Also, keep in mind when ordering as there is a 15% restocking fee for returned items not exchanged for another size.
