Late 18 th Century Winter uniform

 1780s Swedish winter uniform-

Looks eminently practical to me 


  1. I like the juxtaposition between the seemingly impractical uniforms of the period in Sweden and the practical winter version, albeit probably a local addition ( please let me know if I am wrong) rather than standard issue.

  2. I used to wear something similar when crosscountry skiing with army cadets in the 70's. (But with a tuque and different colour and fabric!)

    I wish you and your family a Merry Christmas!
