Sally Green Historical Costumes
10am. to 8pm (10.00-20.00) GMT
We do not produce "off the peg" costumes for 18th century re-enactment. This said, much of the simpler garments from our 17th century range are quite suitable for use is you need something in a hurry. Shirts, shifts, breeches, tradesman's coats are all still fairly unchanged and listed here.
It must be stressed again that the above list is provided purely for convenience and provision of a few basic garments. We prefer to undertake orders for this era as special commission orders.Goto Top
We refer to this garment as a Soldier's Coat as it was the standard issue style to most regiments which fought in the English Civil War. It is however a fairly generic coat worn from late 16th century to late 18th century by tradesmen and working class labourers, and examples are to be found in Diderot's Book of Trades. It is a plain coat with a short necked collar, button fastened at the front, sleeve is worn turn backed.

Cheaper lace collars are sometimes also available with synthetic lace trims.

Our cloaks are made with function in mind. They are thick, hard wearing, durable and above all keep you warm. That is their purpose, they are made out of thick coating quality wool, and are lined in heavy cotton for strength. They are hemmed at the bottom, no half measures, leaving unhemmed edges is sloppy workmanship. The hood is not the floppy, fall over your face fanciful "widow's" style, it sits properly on your head as it should do. The neckline is correctly shaped and as a consequence the cloak will not ride back and strangle you, it will hang about the shoulders equally.
Prices from: £99 Goto Top
A cheaper alternative to the Hooded Cloak, these are simple, single button fastening cloaks without hood or lining. They are the most basic protection against the weather that has been devised since time began and ideal for living history. We also supply separate full, lined hoods if you so require.
Size: Standard. Heavy wool version costs £5 more postage.
