NOTE: Not all wares sold by sutlers are historically accurate or appropriate. If accuracy and authenticity is desired, check with the sutler for documentation or with the Color Guard Captain before purchasing.
Please keep in mind we do not recommend one sutler over another. These sutlers are well-known to SAR color guards and re-enactors.
Sutlers provide either Off the Rack clothing or Tailored clothing. Off the Rack (marked with [O]) is much faster, however the quality and fit of Tailored clothing (marked with [T]) can’t be beat.
These sutlers have pretty much everything you need for the Color Guard.
