GENERAL DESCRIPTION* Hunting was a popular pastime and seasonal vocation. Hunting clothing was also a variation of typical civilian clothing at the time with an additional layer of hunting-specific items. The outer layer included a hunting frock and a sash or belt to close it. Beneath this layer were the normal breeches, shirt, and waistcoat. Full-length gaiters were worn to protect the legs, and shoes or moccasins protected the feet.
