century. From the Colonial Williamsburg website: "Many men of the 18th
century chose great coats as their protective outer garment in foul weather.
Most often made of heavy fulled woolens, it served well to keep one warm and
dry. Some men are known to have had accompanying waistcoats and leggings
made in the same heavy wools. The great coat generally had a collar, a cape
over the shoulders, deep cuffs, and was worn to knee length or longer.
Occasionally, great coats were made in alternative fabrics of lighter
weights, particularly oiled silk and linen."
There are a couple of patterns out there including one in the book Fitting
and Proper by Sharon Ann Burnston.
- Hi Andrew,
I have that dvd so i know a little about the coats you are looking for.
First i think the material is leather, second i think they have painted it to look dirty.
But it would be a greatcoat wich is an outer garment.
A greatcoat was designed big so that you could have your long jackets inside it. For winters use.
In Waughs the cut of mens clothes, there are pattern for this coat.

Subject: [TheCostumersManifesto] Costume from Brotherhood of the Wolf
Hello folks. So I was just searching around looking for some help /
info on a costume I saw used in the movie 'Brotherhood of the Wolf',
also known by the french title 'Le Pacte des Loups' .
So I was hoping that maybe some of you folks out there might be able
to give me a little help or advice!
OK, so there is a neat fighting scene in the movie whereis the two
principal characters are wearing these 18th century riding coat. I'd
like to, of course, duplicate such an outfit as closely as possible.
Here's a link or a few various pictures.... none of them are that
great, I'll try and track down the DVD and capture one of the frames.
The elements that I really like are the earthy color and look (is it
leather or rawhide or something? or some sort of oiled cloth?), the
split at the back construction, etc; I guess there are some sort of
straps inside so the coat moves w/ the legs?
Any ideas? Know of anything off the shelf? I don't know anything
about this kind of stuff... I just want a neat costume!
Anything you can tell me would probably be very helpful and would be
