Landwher, for all their terribleness in combat, the dark blue trench coats and the nice hat looks pretty good actually

I must say the Brunswick units at Waterloo and throughout the Napoleonic Wars were well dressed more the Enlisted than the officers

Oh boy. This won't be predictable to anyone who's seen me post before at all.

British Hussars, the 7th are clearly my favourite, but there aren't enough portraits of them, so here are some others with them.

I can't resist the comment that being the best dressed regiment in the US Civil War doesn't make much difference to your uniform. Being diplomatic, uniforms were very 'practical' in that war.

Prussian grenadiers didn't have the flashiest uniforms like the French or Austrians might have, but damn did they look classy, and damn did they know their shit.
