While handsewing is generally considered the predominate method of garment construction at the Richmond Cloth Bureau, there are several surviving originals that are actually completely machine sewn (with the exception of buttons, buttonholes, and sleeve lining closures). One of these is the Joseph W. Brunson Jacket. 


While the original Brunson jacket is made from imported kersey, we also offer them in tan and gray jean cloth. You can choose from Block I or A buttons, Script I, or 4-hole wooden buttons as well as the fabric. Like our other Richmond jackets, these are lined in high-quality cotton osnaburg cloth just as the originals were. For imported wool kersey, there is an additional $20 charge.


Please note on your order which of the button options you would prefer.




To ensure a proper fit, we request that you get accurate measurements using a tape measure or the strip of cloth and yardstick method detail on the FAQ page. Without an accurate measurement, we cannot ensure that your garment will fit they way it is intended to.


If you are taller than 5'9", please let us know that you will need a longer length jacket.


For sizes larger than 48, there is an additional $15 added to the item.
