We are excited to offer you this real human hair, dark brown, reproduction 17th and 18th century clubbed false queue! The original length of this hair, unclubbed is a full 16" long, quite a length and plenty to work with for many other period styles.
This item has been produced owing to the large number of requests that we have received for a proper, full length human hair queue that meets the standards of the British Army, during the era of the American Revolution. Being clubbed (folded) into shape and secured with a black pure silk ribbon, in accordance with the Regulations of the Summer of 1776, as well as the general practice of both Line, Grenadier and Light Company infantry and Guards Regiments throughout the war.
References to such a style of hair can be found in most orderly books, as well as period military guides, such as those of Cuthbertson. Being both a practical and attractive style of hair management, this was a favoured method of King George and quickly employed throughout the Army. This specific queue is also finished with period correct and army appropriate pomatum, using a lavender scent. While being the most appropriate style of hair for an infantryman, this piece is also highly appropriate for civilian use, as being initially 16" long, this clubbed queue can be restyled into numerous styles, such as braided, or adapted for Grenadier usage and secured to their brearskin. Further, this item may also be used with one of our silk hair/wig bags.
The securing ribbon around the head can also be removed to attach the item to a cap, or reintroduced, as needed, to wear once again upon the head. This item is available in several colours of hair, as well as ribbon, at additional cost, owing to the cost of lighter hair colours.
This item is made to order and will be ready in less than two to three weeks (usually sooner) from the order date.
