Deer Skin

Post by Dathi »

Does anyone know where I can get very good quality deer skin to make a 17th Century buff coat from?

What scource quotes 17th Century buff coats as being made from deer skin?
I'm interested in case my research is wrong, but the only non-Cow/Buffalo hide thick enough would be Elk or similar.

Stuart Reid used to have a buff coat made from camel hide!

There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

The Swedes certainly used Elk.

Camel is good if you have a hunchback.
