I wonder what happened to the uniforms? Imagine keeping them as a momento!
I took a look at the DVD extras and found this.

Ridley Scott: The great military costumes were made in Italy at Peruzzi. I learnt a big lesson in film making: I paid for the costumes, they owned them. I thought, "Wait a minute! That doesn't work for me." I was furious about that. Just the costumes for these two guys [ Keitel and Carradine ] at the time [ 1977 ] cost me 19,000 pounds. I said, "How come they own them?" They said, "That's the deal."

Great pictues Zouave. Knoetel is one of my favourite military artists. The Neapolitan army must have been the most colourful army in the world thanks to their illustrious king Murat.

Best movie ever made about the Napoleonic era as the re-enactors uniforms reflect the periods in the movie superbly and historically.

Love those Hussars.

Wow, £19,000! Would that be a good indication of how much they would have cost back in nap times then converted to modern amounts? Imagine how much a regiment would cost never mind an army! I suppose it would have been less in comparison as these methods are probably no longer used and you would now pay handsomely for an expert to make them as apposed to any old seamstress back in the 1800's.

The dolman and fur-edged pelisse were heavily braided parts of hussar's flamboyant outfit. The pelisse cost a little fortune, 216 Francs!
The whole uniform for infantrymen cost approx. 250 francs.


Most often the fur-edged pelisse was left in depot, or kept boxed, instead only the lighter dolman was worn. They became so damaged already during the first campaign, that they were not taken by the rank and file. The cost of reparing the pelisse was high even for the Guard Chasseurs a cheval, that only some officers could afford it. Henri Lachoque writes that in 1807 during a parade in Paris the Guard Chasseurs "were wearing undress coats with aiguillettes. The crowd missed their gaudy dolmans and pelisses ..."
