Royal Navy Lieutenant's Uniform, 1800-1811

These images are of our re-created Lieutenant's full dress uniform including a detail of the button twist on the lapels and collar along with the belt plate and an undress fore-and-aft bicorn (chapeau bras). While the 1795 dress regulations established this uniform, its cut matches that of the post-1800 period like at the Battle of Trafalgar. This item is made from superfine wool (100.00 per metre) and is finished by hand. There is a couple of weeks of work in each one. Coat: 1250.00US (1350.00CAN) Bicorn: 349.00US (395.00CAN)
