September - October Crow Calls Sale: SAVE 10% - ends 10/31/23

The Riflemans Frock, or Hunting Shirt as it was sometimes called, was the fringed coat worn during the American Revolution and the exploration of the Eastern Frontier. Considered by George Washington to be an ideal military garment, the Rifleman's Frock was eventually adopted by most of the Continental Army at some time during the war. Most often constructed in the open-front frock style, they were overlapped and held in place with a leather belt and buckle or sash; however, they were sometimes made in the pullover style and were loose enough to allow the wearing of other clothing underneath. In this way, they served double duty as a year-round garment that was very practical and simple to make. (see below for more information)
