    And starting to put some color on this chap.
    The undress uniform of the French guards was a very elegant uniform, it consisted of a royal blue coat with red cuffs, red vest and pants, the stockings were red, but if they wore gaiters would have been white or black ( winter), before the 1730's they wore red.
    The lace was silver.
