Uniform of the Week

The chronology of uniforms is something that has always interested me, I like how uniforms developed from peacock brilliance to drab, professional camouflage. This weeks uniform is essentially the Dorothea of Brandenburg uniform which I showcased earlier, updated a few centuries. The uniform is a Prussian Infantryman from the 1870s. I like the functionallity of the tunic and equipment topped with the ostentatious pickelhaube as it shows the evolution of uniforms from extravagant to proffesional. It is obvious how this uniform eventually became the famous German uniforms of the great war.
