I have to offer a pair of Federal Artillery officer trousers made of Dark Blue wool broadcloth with cotton waistband lining and pockets. The fly is lined with lightweight cotton to make it more flexible for buttoning and is not topstitched. The waistband is approx. 1 1/2" wide in the front tapering to approx. 3/4" wide in the back with the correct vent and it has no topstitching. The vent closure is a belt back to allow for waist adjustment. There is a horizontal back yoke tapering into the waistband just behind the seam causing the back of the trousers to rise properly. This pair of trousers has a watch pocket and side seam pockets and the regulation red welt in the seam along the outside of the leg for Artillery Officers. The hem is currently whip stitched so they still retain their original length as they were when they were bought a year ago. They have been worn for parades and two Living Histories but have not seen any hard “Field” use. I am asking $90.00 plus shipping. They retail for 155.00 new from Jarnagin. I have photos on request.
