Richmond Depot Jacket Kit
The standard jacket worn by soldiers of the Army of Northern Virginia from the fall of 1862 until the end of the war, Richmond Depot jackets are easily the most versatile garment for eastern CS impressions. The basic construction of our kit is based of of the John Blair Royall jacket in the Museum of the Confederacy, and is an excellent example of these jackets, thousands of which were made and issued.
Our kit is offered in “type I” style jacket (with an additional $10 charge for the wool tape trim), “type II” style jacket, and “type III” style jacket (with the omission of the epaulets and belt loops.) As standard if no type is specified you will receive a “type II” Richmond Depot jacket kit.
You may also specify a “high curved collar” (what is on the original Royall jacket, and what will be sent if no type is specified) a “high angled collar” or a “low angled collar”.
As with our other kits you will receive all the fabric pieces cut out, a skein of thread with some beeswax, all the necessary buttons, and a seven page instruction booklet with full color pictures!
For body material you have your choice of any of the fabrics on our CS fabric page, and you also have a choice between federal eagle or block “I” buttons!
