Maybe Ron will grace us with his source, or perhaps he had it custom made... :o

I don't recall who made it, I bought it some years back at the Living History show in Kalamazoo Michigan. :-\

I call this one my "Coat of many colors", it's heavy wool and hangs below the knees

That's great... a good wool longcoat would serve me well, back in PA, but here, too much perhaps and layered would work better with our very changeable weather patterns...

Kalamazoo is a bit of a hoof and vendors change frequently...

Here's another winter garment that I like to wear when the snow fly's. It has a hood which doesn't show in the picture. Antler buttons and deerskin fringe on the shoulders. It was custom made for me from a Whitney blanket

I never thought of making an orange "weskit" type of garment.  I like it.   :thumbs:

I had Northwest Traders make me this Orange Capote...toasty warm.  I talked to a few custom capote makers and they wouldn't do it because it was not a traditional color, but Northwest came through with flying colors...pardon the pun.  :thumbs:
