This United States Army coat is made from an indigo dyed flannel, closed with four general service US buttons, and has a pocket on the left side. All visible work is hand sewn. Beauregard’s Tailor’s reproduction Model 1858 Schuylkill Arsenal Blouse is a versatile piece, ideal for a wide range of US Army and Federal impressions. 

 The unlined version contains all hand felled seams, and 100% hand sewn.

Despite official regulations, based on surviving examples and known issuances, only about one third of the blouses produced during the American Civil War were unlined. It would appear that the lined blouse was in fact issued for fatigue purposes, regardless of the original intent. 

The Schuylkill Arsenal Blouse was issued from 1858 - 1872. It was the only United States Army blouse issued before, during, and after the American Civil War, making it a versatile piece, ideal for a wide range of US Army impressions.
