These shell jackets are seen in period photos in use by all branches of service, as well as by officers. They are untrimmed, and unlined. A great alternative to the heavier, warmer frock coat and offering a more "tidy" look than the sack coat. Researched, documented and made to exacting standards for authenticity!
Note: Buttons are included and sewn on all uniforms we sell. Made in U.S.A.
If not in stock it may take at least two to three weeks for completion.
Please call or email us for sizes 52 and above they are available by special order only
