Putting a British soldier into his red coat and other clothes wasn’t as easy as a simple issuance of clothing. Great efforts from many hands were required to ensure that the clothing was made, individually fit, maintained, and then remadeall for the purpose of ensuring a proper “soldier like” appearance. Join Joseph Zea, Fort Ticonderoga Artificer Tailor, to explore the expense, functionality, and longevity of soldiers’ clothes. Many recommendations and practices formed patterns within regiments that involved tailors, followers, and the soldiers themselves that focused solely on ensuring the best use of a soldier’s clothing was achieved.
