    Default High Quality (very lighty worn) trousers, cap and over/battle shirt

    1.) Super uber nice, never worn over shirt. Unsure of the maker but its made by a skilled hand including alot of nice construction detail in both machine and by hand. Nice quality materials including a wool body, great "coin" buttons and trim. XL size. 34 inches down the back from the bottom of the collar to the hem. 20 inches across the back shoulders above the gusset. 24 inches from the bottom of the armscye following the one sleeve seam to the end of the cuff or wrist. Asking $125 for this gorgeous shirt shipped to you. The front bib or placket is not seen enough in both military and civilian interpretations over over/battle shirts. Again, this was bought several years ago by a high quality vendor (cant recall) stored carefully. No nip holes, stains or tears that I can find. Will be mailed priority with tracking.

    2.) Super nice trousers, size 40 (adjustable) waist 32 inseam, "Jersey Skillet Licker" denim trousers. Purchased new from them and worn maybe 3 or 4 times. Very little signs of wear accept in the lining of the legs- at that its very light. Nice denim material, nice stitching throughout. From the bottom of the fly placket (where the legs meet) to the top of the waist band is 12 inches- the rise. The leg outer-seam from the bottom of the pocket to the hem is 36.5 inches. At the hem of the leg or the ankle from the inner seam across the barrel of the leg to the outer seam is 9.5 inches. They are cut wide in the leg as they were in the period- almost like federal trousers. Nice lining material as well. Asking $125 shipped to you.

    3.) 14th "Brooklyn" New York State Militia officers cap. Made by Dirty Billy. Worn once. Small nip in the back. Great shape. 23.5 inches. Asking $125 shipped to you. These sell for $185 (plus shipping) new.
