What's that regiment?
« on: August 05, 2017, 04:47:42 pm »
Hi,

Not so long ago I found some habite-veste, tail-coats tables and painting. My attention caught up those few color schemes that I found very interesting but I don't know what regiments are they. If anyone knows, would be grateful for help ;) ( those are french line infantry coats if someone didn't recognize :3 )
it's drummer with: red habite-veste with black claps, cuffs and collar. Layered braid/gallons are white/purple with purple eagle with emperor's crown.
it's same regiment but tail-coat is from 1806-1811 and habite-veste is from 1811-1813.

I would take some time looking at French Regiments and hopefully find something relating to these specific uniforms.

Right, I've done some research and can only find the two bottom uniforms that were worn by the French in the mid-1700s, I presume that the musician coat was probably around the same time.

Habit Veste was introduced in 1812 so there is no way that they would wear it in the mid-1700s.

Edit: Maybe they have similar colors but are different regiments ( in the mid-1700s those would be royal regiments )

I just noticed this, they have stars as decorations on flaps so it must be at least revolutionary regiment.
