Looking good, can only imagine those uniforms in north African heat….

I guess the rates of disease, sun stroke and heat exhaustion were rather high.

thanks for the feed back.

I did wear exactly those kind of uniforms for a week at Malta – including marching in it.
And that included a whig.

In fact the linen underwear soaked up all sweat and then it evaporated through the layer of wool. I wouldn't say it was comfy – but I did not sweat more than the tourists in shorts and t-shirts and did not get a sunburn either.

The French went from their usual European uniform to cotton ones, which prooved too cold (at nights I guess) and then back to the famous Kleber uniforms where a short tunic of wool was worn.

Alternativley, don't wear a shirt under the waistcoat.
