    Be careful when making assumption about color in those photos. I have seen , in person, a couple of the jackets pictured in EoG and they do not appear the same color as in the photos. Lighting makes a huge difference.
    For example, the Lyons 'Atlanta Depot' jacket is not 'salt and pepper burlap' as stated and is no where near as dark in the photo.
    Note: I am reffering to Echoes of Glory pictures and descriptions. I have never seen the MoC publication so I cannot comment there.

    Lt. Bidgood's jacket is described as olive drab...however the color that is seen now could be from age and fading

    There was of course jean (both cotton and woolen), but also satinette, cassimire, lindsey-woolsey, etc....... Just depends of the time being portrayed and other factors.
