A Heritage Costumes Exclusive.

During the years of the Civil War, only the highest ranking members of the military such as lieutenant colonels, majors, and generals could wear the double breasted frock coat. A double breasted frock coat features an overlapping outer front and two rows of buttons, one inner row to hold the coat closed and one outer. Not every officer who fought in the Civil War was fortunate enough to don a double breasted frock coat — in fact, officers had to request these dress coats to be made on an individual basis.

Officers such as Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, and William Tecumseh Sherman wore double breasted frock coats off the battlefield. A fancy frock coat was considered formal, or off-duty, attire, meant to impress rather than fight. This Civil War era coat was traditionally worn to balls, parades, and when reporting to headquarters. Both the South and the North used these dress coats, but the styles varied based on regiment and an officer’s given army. No matter the side, however, the double breasted frock coat signaled elegance and style in the midst of a devastating war.

An exclusive piece in our Heritage Costumes collection of historical clothing, this Civil War officer’s double breasted frock coat is authentic to the formal and polished off-duty attire of 19th century America in the midst of a divisive conflict. Your navy blue double breasted frock coat is crafted out of polyester and features a line of decorative buttons down the front. This coat can be slipped on with ease, making it easy for a child to wear atop an entire Civil War officer’s outfit. Pair this authentic Civil War era look with our wide selection of clothing pieces, accessories, and added details from the 1800s to create your very own personalized period costume.

This high-quality costume can be used for Civil War-themed school events, a history lesson, or simply a fun day of experiencing life as a 19th century boy in the years of the war. Made with pride and care right in the United States, this double breasted frock coat is built to last.
