Re: Leather waistcoat for workmen

Sleeved waistcoats in leather yes. But not for working class, but as hunting coats.

Re: What is Sweet Oil?

I'm afraid I'm one of those who had always equated it with olive oil. My frame of reference is Georgian military memoirs, peninsula examples refer to the natives cooking with sweet oil, so I had made that connection. The OED's broader definition makes sense to me.

Re: Men's Breeches Front

For 1815 you want narrow fall front. Nice and high obviously. Although the fashion plates and guides of the period change style with a bewildering frequency that makes a mockery of costumer's decade-orientated typologies, you will be absolutely safe and typical with the fall front.

I sometimes wonder about that too. Of course there is a standard imposed, in that to become part of the group you have to be invited. The invitation implies you have demonstrated a certain standard or a willingness to work towards that standard. And guidelines are produced for each event, so you hav...

The purpose was to commemorate the bicentennial of the death of Empress Josephine. There were representatives of the Allied Powers invited.

Regarding the NA, try their Facebook site, it seems much more active. The website is halfway through a revamp. You ought to be spoiled for choice in the Midlands, but Austrians are thin on the ground in the UK.

Hi Matt, You have probably heard of The Napoleonic Association, http://www.napoleonicassociation.org/ an umbrella organisation bringing together groups who recreate the very late C18th and early C19th. Some of their member groups edge back towards the French revolution. I'm not aware of anyone in th...
