Many new images have been added to both the regular Extant Garments album and the Lord Nelson album. There were too many new items for individual posts, so I thought I’d highlight them here. Of particular interest are the surgeon’s uniform items near the bottom. I can just see Stephen making a horrible mess of that full dress coat.

Captain’s Dress Coat (Pattern 1812)
Flag-Officer’s Waistcoat (Pattern 1812)
