    The 1872 and 1873 chevrons were significantly different from the Civil War period chevrons. The chevron was a piece of branch and service colored wool facing cloth with black silk chain stitch outlining the pattern. The black area on our chevrons is dark blue wool.

   The M1884 Gold Bouillon dress coat chevrons are the same pattern as the M1872 chevrons, except they are made with Gold Bouillon.

    In 1898 the Army authorized cotton chevrons to be used on the khaki uniform. This was so that the coat and chevrons would shrink at the same rate. These cotton chevrons are ONLY for use on the khaki coats.

Men's Suspenders, Single and Double Front

Item Last Updated: Sunday, 30-Oct-2016 15:26:43 EDT

Civilain Single Front Suspenders, 19th Century (1800s) Men's Clothing

Single Front Suspenders (1830-on)

    The single front (#1908) suspenders / braces are made of heavy cotton tape and are adjustable by means of a prong buckle). This style has the single front leather button tabs. They feature the crossed "X" pattern back to help keep the suspenders from falling off your shoulders.

Civilain  Split / Double Front Suspenders, 19th Century (1800s) Men's Clothing

Double (Split) Front Suspenders (1830-on)

    The double front (#1907) suspenders /braces are also made of heavy cotton tape and are adjustable by means of a prong buckle), but have the split front leather button tabs. These also feature the crossed "X" pattern back to help keep the suspenders from falling off your shoulders.

Civilain  Split / Double Front Suspenders with elastic, 19th Century (1800s) Men's Clothing

Double (Split) Front Elastic Bottom Back Suspenders (1857-on)

    Double button front (#7277) Suspenders - SPECIAL with Elastic Backs - Same as above #1907 suspenders except the lower portion of both back straps has been changed to white elastic. In the photo at left the elastic section has been tinted red for reference. On the actual suspenders the elastic is white and is therefore lighter in color than the off white of the rest of the straps. The elastic portion allows some "give" to the suspenders when bending over. The elastic portion looks similar to the cotton tapeof the straps. Although a friction clasp is shown in the photo, a piercing prong buckle is now used exclusively- see above.

    These Suspenders are correct for the 1857 (Note: samples were found in the cargo of a ship that sank in 1857 on the Mississippi River) thru 1890 period and for trousers with the double button front on each side. These also feature the crossed "X" pattern back to help keep the suspenders from falling off your shoulders.

Civil War Military Style Boots, Light Artillery or Cavalry

by Fugawee Footware

Item Last Updated: Sunday, 30-Oct-2016 15:26:43 EDT

American Civil War / Civil War military boots
Repro (size 9), Original (size 5)
    These boots are made by one of the few boot makers in the world that still produces the antique molded front piece. The master boot maker was sent an unworn original model 1859 Boot made in 1865. The top is about 12" tall when measured from the top of the sole and about 14" tall when measured from the floor.

    This boot was originally called the M1851 Artillery Driver's Boot, as it was originally only issued to Artillery Drivers. During the American Civil War they were also issued to Cavalry troops and continued as the Cavalry Boot until replaced by the Model 1872 Boot, which is a modified version of this boot.

    This boot is an exact copy, with the exception of two changes. The originals had been machine pegged, nine pegs to the inch. Ours is stitched due to the lack of machine that can duplicate the work of an 1860's pegging machine. And for comfort the boot is lined with calfskin leather from top to toe. The leather in our boot is a semi-rough cowhide especially selected after studying the original boot. They will take a shine after a few polishes or will take Lexol for a "field-worn" look. They have a sewn sole with a ridged shank pegged into place. This boot has a comfortable square toe and a tight-gripping heel. There are no side seam welts.

    This boot covers an amazing time period. It is ideal for many impressions from just after 1800 through 1900 and beyond. It is suitable for 1800's miners, teamsters, cattlemen, farmers, Indian Wars, Cowboy Shooters, etc.. Mail order catalogues printed in the 1890s show a wide assortment of prices and qualities in styles just like these.

    According to Quartermaster records, most shoes and boots purchased had sewn soles. The pegged sole booties were purchased for $1.25 and $1.30 per pair as opposed to the average of about $1.90 for sewn soles, but the sewn soles were preferred.

    These ship from Florida. Normal delivery time is 5 to 10 days, IF your size is out of stock they will normally take 2 to 6 weeks.
