Picking Your Battles
When you're fighting for one of the most powerful monarchies in the world, you might not think anyone has a chance. After all, the Brits had the ships, the men, and the highly caffeinated tea. Who can stand up to that? The thing is, any nation can stretch themselves too thin. The British Empire was one of many nations to realize that one government can't rule the whole world. If you want to do the Redcoats a favor at your next costumed event, do your battalion a favor and pick your battles wisely. Don't get mad at that guy who cuts in front of you in traffic, no matter how tough you look in your smart red jacket. But you could totally put your two cents in when two blunderbusses are arguing over musket brands, that's a battle that a soldier like you can win!
Product Details & Design
Our in-house designers created a high-quality, dashing look with this British redcoat costume. The long coat's front is framed with a black collar with gold buttons and sequins on the sides. The collar matches the cuffs for an official look. The look is pulled together with a tan vest that buttons up the front with a cravat and layered under a chest belt. Match the boot tops with a pair of black dress shoes and fitted pants and you'll be ready to represent the British Empire.
Redcoats might not get a lot of play in today's media but we think this look is ready for a comeback. There's no need for them to support colonialism, they can simply represent everything we love about Britain. Like the British baking shows for instance, is there anything more admirable than a polite reality television show? We don't think so. Invest in a powdered wig and a prop scabbard, British invasion is back by popular demand!
