Civilian costumes

Items as shakos or shirts made in series by our suppliers, and on stock, are sent within 3 days, then it can take 3 to 7 days to arrive in your country, and customs can keep your parcel 2 months in USA if they want....We cannot avoid this risk, lower if we send by UPS than if we send by national French post (this last one is less expensive).
All uniforms and civilian clothings are made in our atelier at your size, it can take 2 to 4 months to make them, none is usually on stock.
When you pass an order for uniforms and other items, note that if you don't want to wait a single shipping containing all your order, better pass an order for things on stock, and another one for things needing 2 to 4 months to be made!

We can, as you can see, make any type of civilian costume of the Napoleonic period, for man, or woman.
