Now famously known as “Red Coats,” the British army during the American Revolutionary War were a force to be reckoned with when the US attempted to win independence from its colonial master. The Childs British Red Coat Costume features a long red coat with a tan trim that is featured prominently on the jacket's inner lining, cuffs, front, and side pockets; the jacket also has rounded silver button accents that give the overall costume a highly professional look. Additionally, the costume includes a tan vest, matching tan knickers, lace cuffs, and a lace jabot to complete this historical style. Under King George III, Great Britain fought to keep the colonies under its control, but was ultimately bested by the Continental Army. This costume is a fantastic outfit to wear for a Fourth of July party, Halloween, or Revolutionary War reenactment. People will compliment your son on his authentic looking costume, despite him being dressed in the opponent's uniform.
