WE APPRECIATE YOUR PATIENCE AND YOUR CONTINUED PATRONAGE!
We realize that re-enactment clothing is a luxury and not a necessity. We strive to keep our prices fair and in line with others in our industry. The extra steps we take ensure the quality of our products is equal to, or well above, the industry standards.
Ft. Downing Trading Co. is a home based historical clothing business for men and women, and now children! We do our own sewing using authentic patterns of 18th Century life, with special emphasis to the French & Indian War and the Revolutionary War time periods.
We take great pride in our work and take extra steps to assure that we turn out a quality garment. Our fabrics are selected to reflect period-correct styles and colors, and ALL fabrics are prewashed and dryed using the hottest settings possible. This insures you that your garment will not shrink the first time you laundry it. We double and triple stitch the stress points on all of our clothing.
Although we do maintain a basic stock supply, each order is handled individually. When you place an order with us, we attempt to customize it to your own specific needs and measurements. The care we take with your garment makes each piece a one-of-a-kind article. The time it takes to complete your order depends on the complexity of the garment and our backlog of orders.
Our goal is a satisfied customer. So, if you are not completely satisfied with the quality or fit, we want to know, and you may return it if not soiled or damaged for a replacement or a full refund.
MAY WE SEW FOR YOU?
