Riflemen or Hunting Frock Coat
This wrap style of coat was worn for more than 150 years. Getting it's start in the French and Indian Wars, worn by Washinton's troops all the way down through the mountain man era and beyond. These rugged, versitile coats can be made from different weights of fabric and in just about any color (typically off white, earthy colors all the way to to blue, gray and black) as long as there is a dye available) to suit what you will be e using them for; with one cape or two; with or without fringe (matching or contrasting); with or without trim. While I can use store bought fringe on request, the majority of the time the fringe on this style coat is handmade by picking out the threads from a piece of fabric after it has been securely applied to the coat.
Men's frock coats can be made from a wide variety of fabric types. They were usually constructed from darker colors to reduce the appearance of dirt. There were two "front" styles. The typical square front and a rounded front.
Sack coats were a shorter jacket type coat. Constructed from a heavier weight fabric of either wool, cotton, velvet, heavy linen or a blend, this coat was shorter than a frock coat.
Dusters from the past were not like the oiled dusters folks think of today. The purpose of a duster bck in the day was to protect a man's clothing from the dirt and dust on the trail while going from home or camp to someplace special like a dance or even church. Typically they were made from a canvas type material.
