C. S. Shell Jackets

C.S. Enlisted and NCOs Shell Jacket (Confederate)

Item Last Updated: Sunday, 30-Oct-2016 15:25:22 EDT

    The early war period saw many different styles, trims and types of uniforms. Our Early War Shelljacket reflects the "militia influence" of a romantic war. Uniforms have more trim, more buttons (always shiny) and were usually designed by the militia units themselves prior to the war. When war came and most militia units were absorbed into Confederate service, they quickly found that their fancy militia dress uniforms were unsuitable for field use.

    The Plain jackets are made in Medium Grey or Brown Grey wool colors and different Wooljean colors. All are cotton lined and most feature a nine button front, however, other button amounts are available at extra cost.

    Specify Branch of Service Color: Red - Artillery, Yellow - Cavalry, Sky Blue - Infantry, French Blue - Infantry (French Blue was used in both the Eastern and Western theatres of the War.) or Black - Militia.


    This REPRODUCTION Clothing item is Made in the USA. This a quality reproduction item made as close as is modernly possible. Sewing is done by machine to keep costs down (except where hand sewing is required) and most do not show externally. Some items offer hand sewing on exposed stitching (such as buttonholes) for an additional cost.

    Pictures of the item on this page are pictures of the item we sold. All pictures of items we sell are Copyrighted, either by us or our supplier of the item.

    This is not a costume that is made using modern construction or components that did not exist during the time of its original usage (IE: zippers, etc.). Beware of fakes, especially ones using images stolen from this site (Copyright Infringement).

    Chevrons are not included with uniforms, whether pictured or not, but can be added for an additional charge.

Common (Plain) Shelljackets

    Also, throughout the war, some soldiers procured their own uniforms, either by private purchase of tailor made clothing or by having the folks back home "make up" a new uniform to replace their tattered one. We refer to these nondescript jackets as "Common (Plain) Confederate Shelljackets". They do not have the piping down the front and around the bottom, but can have collar and cuff branch of service colors.

    A "Home Style" version is available unlined and with no trim.

    Custom made item, please allow 8 - 10 weeks for delivery. Custom Clothing and Uniforms are not returnable. Rush orders are available for an additional price. A rush order reduces the manufacturing time from 8 - 10 weeks to 4 - 5 weeks.

Wooljean Shelljackets

    These are examples of the plain shelljacket (without trim colors) made from our wool jean (Homespun) cloth. These uniforms were made from cloth that the tailor or seamstress could procure locally. Rarely would they resemble what the rest of the soldier's unit was wearing. This may explain some eye witness accounts of Confederate soldiers wearing such a hodgepodge mixture of uniforms.

    There is also an option of an outside pocket, either on the left or right. The pocket option is available for an additional cost.

    Custom made item, please allow 8 - 10 weeks for delivery. Custom Clothing and Uniforms are not returnable. Rush orders are available for an additional price. A rush order reduces the manufacturing time from 8 - 10 weeks to 4 - 5 weeks. The price on rush orders DOES NOT include faster shipping, for faster shipping use the shipping option on the "View Cart" page.
