Look at those shoulders! Just look at them!
The shoulders are the only part of this coat I just don't like. Maybe someday I'll update the coat to some 1840s sleeves instead of the earlier poofs that it has now.
Here's a photo from when I wore the outfit to Old Sturbridge Village. As I recall the weather was warm and the snow was melting to make a lot of mud. But at least I was warm enough in my outfit. The hat is shaped wrong for the period, but it'll have to do.
Yesterday I had my wife take some other photos in our living room. I thought I'd pretend I was reading. :)
If this were the 1830s I'd be clean-shaven.
