Buffalo Robes are well documented to the period of 1855.  There are a number of clothiers who make wool overcoats in addition to the capote patterns that are relatively inexpensive (Couple of hundred for a good Hudson Bay blanket and pattern.)

It you want to go a little cooler, layer yourself in a good frock or sack, vest and flannel shirt.  There are some relatively inexpensive costume-grade clothing makers and then there are those who add the extra TLC for a little more but its typically worth it.

One of my favorite things to do is wear common period clothing items that look farby but are spot on authentic.  Wear a knit stocking cap or Balaclava on your head with a period pullover under your coat. There are period repros out there and originals to back them up.  Welcome to the club.  I think you'll have a lot of fun here.

"Sorry ..."? You sound like a Canadian! We're everlastingly sorry for any and everything - even the weather. The rest of the world says - "Pardonnez-moi", "Entshuligentsie(?)", "Excuse me", but a Canadian is "Sorry".

One of the ways to pick a Canuck out of the herd.

Take it as a compliment. Means you're polite.

Bertrand Cargo...."Seven different styles of mens coats"

Excavated artifacts

Display of artifacts recovered from the Bertrand.
The cargo found on the excavated Bertrand provides a unique glimpse into the material life of Virginia City, Montana Territory. The steamboat was full of clothing, tools, food and various consumer items on their way upriver. The shipís cargo amounted to roughly 283 cubic meters. The collection includes: dried and salted beef, mutton and pork; oysters; pepper sauce; strawberries, peaches and peanuts; mustard from France; many bottles of whiskey including bourbon; brandy and brandied cherries; and medicine bottles. There were over 3,000 textiles and clothing items, including gloves, hats, trousers and 137 menís coats in seven different styles. Household goods included mirrors, clocks and silverware; and there were various building supplies for the growing town. The largest consignment of the goods was bound for the Vivian and Simpson retailer in Virginia City. They would have also been sold from log cabin stores in the surrounding towns, including that of Frank Worden, the founder of Missoula.

Many of the goods were beyond the expectations for a primitive mining town. The ship also carried everything necessary to mine the Montana claim, including blasting powder, pickaxes and shovels. All the goods were fully insured, and the insurance company ultimately reimbursed the merchants for their losses. The men and women on the frontier were not totally isolated from the rest of the country and its consumption and fashion habits, but appear to have been relatively integrated and informed. The artifacts from the Bertrand represent the evidence of what kinds of goods flowed from St. Louis to the Montana territory during this important period of American state formation. More generally, water travel and the development of the steamboat played a major role in the settlement and development of America.

In 1974, samples of canned food from the wreck, including brandied peaches, oysters, plum tomatoes, honey, and mixed vegetable, were tested by the National Food Processors Association. Although their appearance, smell and vitamin content had deteriorated, there was no trace of microbial growth and the food was determined to be still safe to eat.[6]

Heard back from the Bertrand director today.  He said he'll try to get me photos of the seven different styles of coat after the first of the year.  Should be good info!

Please share when you get them! I was looking at the De Soto Refuge site and did not find any.

I plan on it! I always like it when people share the information they've found.  I'm looking forward to seeing what they have!
