Pants and Vests

JEAN CLOTH

  Our Jean Cloth is woven exclusively for Blockade Runner Inc. We feel it is the best reproduction of the original on the market today. All of our pants, shells & frocks are made from this top of the line textile. You be the judge, take a look and compare. I'm sure you will be just as impressed with it as I was when I watched that first yard come off the loom.
  We have been phasing in BRI Jean Wool since Jan. of 2005. It has taken us that long to use all the Kline's we had in stock. Now almost 2 years later, even our most demanding customers have been thrilled with the quality of our garments. We have shipped thousands of garments made from our new jean to our customers here in the states and around the world and have not had a single one returned due to unsatisfactory cloth.
  They are available in three different colors. Taupe on brown, taupe (light gray) color wool yarn woven with brown cotton yarn which gives the cloth a nice light brown tint. Natural gray jean wool, gray wool yarn woven with gray cotton yarn. (It's gray, I don't know how else to explain it). Brown jean wool, brown wool yarn woven with brown cotton yarn. The photo below is of 3 jean cloth vests. This will give you some idea of the colors but remember the color may look different depending on the monitor you use to view it.

From left to right, taupe on brown, gray and brown.

MEASUREMENT INSTRUCTIONS

  These pants are cut so the waist band fits right at your belly button. Thatís how the originals were cut. If you have a big belly and wear your pants below it like a refrigerator repair man you need to let us know. 'Cause if you don't it will look like a family of chipmunks moved out of the seat of your pants. If you wear a size 36 waist regular pants then buy a size 36 waist jean cloth pants. If you have a long or short inseam or have any other special fitting needs you must fill out a size chart. There may, but not always, be a small charge for special needs. Such as XX long. We can only work from the information you give us, so more is better. There is also a comment box at the bottom of the size chart page. Use it to give us any info you think might be helpful.

BLUE JEAN WOOL PANTS

  Our Blue Jean Wool pants are first rate, none better! They have mule ear pockets, pewter buttons with sewn button holes. They have straps in the back for a piercing buckle. The pockets are deep so you don't have to worry about your valuables falling out. They fit comfortably and will wear comfortably but as long as iron.

"But Jerry, Confederates didn't wear blue!" Give me a break, if you've read the book, "That Terrible Sound", then you know that some credit for the Union line faltering at Chickamauga has to be given to the South Carolina Regt. who were dressed in brand new blue uniforms. The union held their fire (thinking the SC boys were Union) until it was toooooo late.

Anyway these are great pants and they will add a little variety to your kit. A CS Regt. (Army of Tennessee) being dressed in matching uniforms circa 1863 is about as farby as a Texaco uniform.

TROUSERS

  A note on the use of Sky Blue Trousers by Confederate Troops. Some of our modern commanders in the field frown upon the use of sky blue trousers by their CS troops. Far be it from me to tell you or your commander what to wear. But you might be interested to know that in the 1862 Regulations for the Army of the Confederate States, page 403, paragraph 1484 the manual states; The uniform trousers for both officers and enlisted men will be of cloth throughout the year; made loose, and to spread well over the foot; of light, or sky blue color for regimental officers and enlisted men and of dark blue cloth for all other officers; reinforced for cavalry.

The above paragraph is typed exactly as it appears in the 1862 manual and appears in the 1863 manuel without any changes, it's even the same paragraph and page number.

Dr. John Farris, acting as hospital steward / assistant surgeon for the 41st Tenn. Inf. in a letter to his wife Mary writes the following;
Camp Cold Water near Holly Springs Miss.
Tues. Oct. 28, 1862
  I went to town today and mailed a letter to you and your father. When you get yours, you will think that I was out of humor on account of not receiving letters from home. I returned from Holly Springs about sunset, and when I got to the Regt. I found the boys all in uniforms which they had drawn. Their pants were all sky blue; their coats grey round about with cuff and collars trimmed in blue. Grey caps for all. This will add much to their appearance on the field, though taken their uniforms all into consideration, it is quite common and coars.
(spelling is as it appears in the letter.)

  These 2 examples are printed here for your consideration. Any conclusions drawn are your own as we imply none and only suggest you add this information to that already in your possession.

  Our standard Infantry trousers are available in Confederate or Richmond gray. Federal or sky blue wool. Also available in butternut.
