A Heritage Costumes Exclusive.
Life in the Thirteen Colonies was far from easy. America’s first settlers and colonists arrived on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean seeking refuge from the oppression of English rule—yet once they stepped on shore, the difficulties only multiplied. Colonists had to build their cities and towns from the ground up, facing unfamiliar terrain, weather, and Native Americans. Life in the New Worlds proved challenging thanks to the control Britain held over the colonies, too. From paying taxes on necessities to following the rules established by England’s government leaders, everything was constantly changing in the new America.
A typical colonial townsman spent his days working, whether handling important communications between England and the colonies or establishing his own business. The center of any colonial city or town was filled with action, and many townsmen during the 1700s spent their days interacting with other men, seeing and being seen in the city’s center.
An exclusive piece in our Heritage Costumes collection of historical clothing, this colonial townsman costume is authentic to the fashion and style of 18th century America. This typical colonial outfit is brown in color and includes a long-sleeved shirt, a colonial waistcoat (or vest), and a pair of matching colonial knee breeches (also known as knickers) for a truly historic colonial look. You can make your traditional colonial townsman attire your own with our accessories, such as a colonial hat, socks, or shoe buckles, which can all be purchased separately.
This high-quality costume can be used for colonial-themed school events, a history lesson, or simply a fun day of dressing up to experience life as an 18th-century colonial boy. Made with pride and care right in the United States, this colonial townsman costume is built to last.
America's "Founding Fathers" are some of the most prominent statesmen of America's revolutionary generation, responsible for the successful war for colonial independence from Great Britain.
