I am not sure if people had seen this, but I wanted to not only reinforce the fact that we are not shipping any new products to Regimental Quartermaster. Moreover, it needs to be expressly stated that this is a USED garment, and nowhere on the website is it presented as such. To deliberately sell a used item as new is illegal. We only made one of these frock coats ever, and it was custom made for the manager.
Recostruction of a true Quadrille Cancan, how it was around 1860, as you may know Cancan comes from le chevalier seul one figure of traditional Quadrille dance..., initially it was reserved only to men but some daring ladies wanted also to dance it , it was really a scandal back in the days! Enjoy and let's see if you recognize the steps!!!
The dancers are: Christine de Gioanni, Olivia Wély, Jean-Guillaume Bart et Alexandre Emard during the first Championnat de Paris de Danse historique, organized by Association Carnet de Bal.
I am excited to announce the launch of a line by my personal friend and collegue, Pablo Diaz. He is a veteran designer working on his current collection.
I worked with Pablo at Undergear in New Jersey, and it is funny that he moved to Chile and I am in Gettysburg, and yet we reconnected.
Great things will be coming from him in the forthcoming months!
We are working on a run of Federal issue blankets. We should have them on hand in 5 weeks.
Spratt cans are back in production and will be in stock at the end of the month.
I have been reenacting since 1974, and I have seen many things, but what transpired recently, just tops it all. I had wanted to address this prior to reenactorfest, but time was simply too short to address this adequately.
Previously, I had posted a statement regarding the degrading personal attack that Guy William Gane had made regarding my participation at the Remembrance Day parade. He didn't offer an explanation or apology (which would have dismissed the whole matter), he... deleted the comments, and tried to pretend that he never said them. My response made the adage of stones and glass houses very clear.
Instead of grasping yet another opportunity to apolgize, Mr. Gane took it upon himself to contact my employer, asserting among all else, (and this is stunning) that I was harassing HIM and his incarcerated father.
It isn't bad enough that you are disrespectful in reenactment circles, but to involve yourself in someone's personal job and personal life is despicable. Aside from murdering or assaulting me, he has sunk as low as he can go.
So that he is perfectly clear, the conversation about him lasted 5 minutes, and there is no harassment (at least on my part). What did subsequently transpire was a 45 minute discussion on the Liberty Rifles, and the network within them.Thanks to his actions, they are now on the radar.
