Busby / Coldstream Guard - Boys Costume
Coldstream is a place in Scotland where, in 1650, the Coldstream regiment was founded by General George Monk. This regiment is well known all over the world for its particular uniform and the ceremony of the Changing of the Guard at Windsor Castle.
Coldstream guard costume is perfect to recreate the Windsor Guard’s look but also to dress up as a Crimean War soldier.
This outfit has a red jacket with black mandarin collar, gold fabric mock-buttons on the chest and cuffs (jacket has velcro fastening), and gold trim and epaulettes. The black trousers also have gold trim and mock-buttons on the trousers, and have an elasticated waist for comfort.
The black busby hat has an elasticated chin strap and is tapered towards the top giving a short, neat appearance rather than the tall, exaggerated look associated with the Coldstream Guards. This is reflected in the price. For older children we suggest our 15" adult coldstream guard hat to achieve this look.
