Re: Looking for a late 18th Century Non-Military Society

There's also the Lexington minutemen, who are an American revwar civilian Miltia (1775-1776). We all portray civilians i.e. my role is as tailor, and do skirmishes.

The breeches and waistcoat p...

Re: Looking for guidance Late 18C male worker

the main thing that I have found is that you need to make sure that you really fit the garments to you, by the end of the 18th century a lot of the items i.e waistcoats and coats etc were well fitting especially on torso and arms, also breeches should be tight to the thigh. Personally I haven't yet ...

Re: Common soldiers tents/shelters.

should have said sorry. Looking for 15th century either English or burgundian. I know that primary source is going to be very difficult to find. But im sure when there was a tent thread that there were images that did show other types of shelters than just the bog standard medieval tents.
