The Musketeer first came into fame under King Louis XIII of France. He kept a company as his personal guard and they were the inspiration of Alexander Dumas' series of novels. The most famous of which is "The Three Musketeers". True to their name, Musketeers were excellent shots. Unfortunately the Musket had to be reloaded each time it was fired. This made the Musket a limited weapon if ranks were over run and combat turned hand to hand. Due to this, survival for the Musketeer depended on being an excellent swordsmen as well. Today, those who don the raiment of the Musketeer invoke an image of the finest qualities in all men; Gallant, brave, chivalrous, and debonaire.
Any Lady would count herself honored to be in such fine company. Outfit includes tabard and shirt.
After the death of Louis XIII, his son, (XIV), made some changes. In addition to the remake of the uniform tabard for his musketeers, he also upgraded the fashions worn under. Instead of the traditional doublet with vented sleeves (a throw back from his father's time), Louis XIV had them wear a fencing vest and pants to match the lining of the tabard. This vest came to just above the knee, was buttoned down the front, had full sleeves with cuff, but only a vented half-back. The pants were knickers,
When King Louis XIV became King of France, he instituted many changes to the look of his countries military. The Kings Musketeers, his personal guard, were of particular focus for king Louis. He wanted to improve and update their dress in keeping with the fashion of the times. In lieu of the Fencing vest, Officers in the Kings Musketeers wore frock coats to denote rank.

lining. Captains wore all blue. Both were trimmed in silver. Another unique feature was the triple vented backs of these coats, typically was the style of gentry frocks alone in the 16th century. The Full version of this uniform sports the frock coat, Vest and pant matching the cuff, & white shirt with cravat.. All though the Musketeer tabard was the standard fare for the enlisted men, officers would wear them from time to time over their frocks. There are a few schools of thought as to why, but the one that makes the most sense is that in a battle, the officers would be harder to target among the ranks. Both coats are expertly tailored with suit fronts, shoulder pads, and functional pockets. (please note: there is no left breast insignia on any of the officer coats)
