If you have already visited other sections of this catalogue you will have seen that we obviously undertake a great deal of research in order to ensure that our products are as accurate a representation as possible of the original item. We apply the same high standards to our re-created uniforms, and as much as it is possible, we construct in the manner of the period with hand stitching and hand finishing of detail. We do not employ a large staff of machinists, but instead each order is given the individual attention of a qualified and experienced military tailor who also has a commitment to, and interest in, the period. For example, all our button holes are hand stitched and the shade of cloth is chosen to be as close as possible to the original, without succumbing to the temptation of using the more readily available modern military cloths.

We are not multi-period sutlers, but deal only with 19th century British militaria, and we have the backing and support of leading authors and researchers in this field.

The end result is a garment that you will be proud to wear and we will be proud to have supplied.

Despite this "non-production-line" approach our prices remain very competitive and we are showing below some typical uniform garments and prices for your guidance. All our garments are individually made-to-measure, and we will be happy to quote for your particular requirements.

Should you require an extra special quality garment we also offer a bespoke tailoring service. In this range each garment is individually built to the very highest standards by a fully experienced military tailor with minute attention to detail and finish.

Please contact us with your requirements for an individual quotation. For made-to-measure or bespoke tailoring please contact us by phone, fax email or post.

We are very proud to announce that we were commissioned by the Isle of Man Government to design and produce a tunic and belt for the official Sword bearer to wear at the opening of the Island's parliament - the Tynwald - in July 2000. The tunic was based on a Victorian Infantry officer's dress tunic and the sleeve embroidery and epaulettes were based on traditional Isle of Man Celtic knot designs. The gold lace belt was based on a Victorian cavalry officer's pattern with a gilt plate clasp bearing the IoM three legged device in silver As you will see the tunic was very closely inspected by HRH The Prince of Wales and his pleasure and approval is evident!
