Normally do a “campaigner” Union soldier impression so period correctness including clothing is important to me. Recently did my first civilian impression and needed a civilian coat to meet my standards but did not have time to have one made or unlimited funds. Luckily South Union Mills had a Paletot my size in stock and could not have been more pleased. Both the material and construction are high quality including visible areas being hand sewn such as the button holes. The price was also very reasonable. So if your looking for a good quality civilian coat I would certainly recommend South Union Mills. Joe Musgrove North Little Rock, Arkansas
I do not do a civilian impression but could not resist the aesthetics of this coat. I actually purchased it to wear as a coat to the office on chilly days. While not a heavy overcoat for the dead of winter, being in North Texas it should serve nicely for most of fall and early spring wear. It is very well made and fits superbly. Excellent coat with great looks and I look forward to wearing it this fall.
