Thanks folks!  Somehow, amongst all the confusion with Harvey, I missed seeing these posts.

Joe....yeah...I'm going to have to work on a military uniform.  My other characters are a Mexican Peasant, and a Plains Indian!

Troy, have you ever found any period photos of the "classic" white shirt and pants for a peasant outfit? Maybe I'm not searching right, all I can find is some of reenactments of the revolution, with all identical shirts, pants, hats and red bandannas. I doubt they really were all that uniform. In period pictures from the Mexican Revolution, I rarely see that outfit-mostly cowboy/vaquero outfits, or "townies" standard period pants, shirt, sack coat.

You're implying the costuming in "The Magnificent Seven" may not be historically accurate?!!  How DARE you?!!

I'd love to see photos of that outfit on actual combatants.  Should be an easy one to do if the research supports it.

Okay...so my characters are NCOWS  originals approved!  I modeled the white shirt and pants after the "Magnificent Seven"...it was the theme for the first annual match that I attended at Thunder River Renegades.

Here's one photo of the classic white shirt and drawers...

I'm not sayin' nobody wore it-but there's sure not many pictures on the web! I was searching a few months ago, and found 1(one)period photo of the "Mexican peasant revolutionary", but didn't save it, and can't find it again! Was and older guy, outfit was pretty worn and torn, posed pic with a Mauser rifle, If I remember correctly.

The mexicanhistory.org link had some good photos.  There is a video, which I'll watch later (it is bed time!)  on there called the Storm that Swept Mexico.  I did a scroll though it, and there were even some motion pictures w/ Zapta and Pancho!!

I haven't seen the video yet. Maybe I should modify my statement, not that there's NO pictures wearing that outfit, but there's not many, and most don't show much detail, like the "insurrectos" picture. Details like :collar? No collar? pullover vs button up? Or maybe some of each?

But on the other hand....since I'm 6'1" and fair skin and green eyes, maybe I shouldn't try for the "Mexican Peasant" look....

Good Troy,
Congratulations!
if you'll send me your email, I have some color illustrations of Mexican peasantry from an 1876 book printed in Mexico showing typical dress of different social levels, plus some pics of Mexican paper currency from second quarter of 19th century.
I would post here but when Photobucket wanted to charge for third party hosting I told them "Adios!"
My email is on my CAS City profile, just click my name on the left above my avatar.

Congratulations Troy.  Hope you're not TOO water logged.  A guy I work with didn't get water in his house until well after Harvey passed.  His Harley's were in the entry way.
