Royal Museums Greenwich, Firmin & Sons Limited, royal naval uniform, England, pattern 1795–1812.
Materials: wool, brass, gold alloy, silk, velvet, linen.
Description: Full dress coat for a captain, over three years seniority. It belonged to Alexander Hood (1758-98). The coat is of blue wool and features a stand-up collard edged with gold lace, as are the button back lapels and front edge of the skirts. The sleeves feature the distinctive ‘mariners cuff’, which has been edged in gold lace, and there are a further two rows of lace on the sleeve to indicate rank. Clearly Hood could afford a more lavish coat as the collar is lined in white velvet and the breast and tails are lined in white silk twill, as are the interiors of the pocket flaps.

A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, 1884. Georges Seurat. Oil on Canvas.
This piece was amazing to see in person. The amount of little dots that make this up is mind-blowing, let alone the grand size—nearly seven feet tall, and ten feet wide. If you’re ever in Chicago, please go to the Art Institute at least once.
