M1884-1887 Officer's Fatigue Blouse, Brown Canvas Duck

Item Last Updated: Sunday, 30-Oct-2016 15:26:37 EDT

M1884 officer's fatigue blouse, brown canvas duck
    The Army originally intended canvas clothing for soldiers doing fatigue duty, since canvas was easier to clean than wool clothing. However, the cloth was found to be so comfortable by enlisted men, that officer's soon started having enlisted blouses modified for their needs. Although called "Brown" in the US Regulations, historians agree there were many shades of brown canvas used during this time frame, from a chocolate brown to a tan. As again, color variation was experienced from dye lot to dye lot, and the fabric tended to fade.

  An unlined blouse with branch of service facing colors (Cavalry is shown at left). The cuff facings appear on the outer portion of the sleeve only. The officer's trim colored collar is standing in place of the Enlisted roll collar. Six large black imitation hard rubber buttons close the front. Two small brass Eagle buttons are used to keep the breast pockets closed. Seams on our coat are flat-felled.

    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.
