We are now offering Patent brims for the forage cap and kepi.  These were done on both enlisted and officer's kepi and forage caps.  The original patent leather was 5 to 7 layers with sanding between coats that took time to build up to the correct finish.  These are not painted with shellac but instead a true multi-step process like the original patent leather.  These are not a stocked item and will be special order only.  There is an extra charge of $60.00 for these brims.

For more information on these types of leathers please follow this link 

We also make all the chin straps here in our shops in Mississippi!


 

Forage Caps

Little wonder that the Confederacy used US M1858 type forage caps! Of the eight officers on board which approved the design for the US Army in 1858, at least five became Confederate soldiers. This cap can be ordered in a variety of colors to coordinate with your uniform. May also be ordered in the two-color types, either Early War with the top of service branch color and a dark blue band around the bottom, or in the style with the service branch color band. These wool forage caps have a cotton lining, leather sweatband, leather bill and chin strap with brass slide. The forage cap has a high crown with a tall body meant to fall forward. They have leather bills and chin straps. They have a pasteboard crown reinforcement and cotton linings with leather sweatbands. The forage cap has a welt around the top circle and across the top part of the bill the same color as the hat.
