The elite guard of the infamous Cardinal Richelieu wore this tabard as a sign of his office. This blood red tabard is manufactured of heavy red cotton velvet with an antique gold rayon lining. Embroidered crosses with fleur-de-lis are on both chest and sleeves. Looks great with our Musketeer shirt
#100512. One size fits most. Dry clean only.
Pet peeve on the write up regarding this tabard. Alexandre Dumas' fable of Baroque intrigue and royal court mischieve had nothing to do with reality. The two companies of Musketeers were merged into a single battalion and they both wore, you guessed it, the same RED tabard. So much for the hated red of Richelieu's Guard. Fit may be a problem on the large XL side. This may not quite be worth the net price, but is a bargain when offered as the deal of the day.
