Drab broadcloth was another common color used for men's coats, greatcoats, waistcoats, breeches, jackets and for women's cloaks. For example "Deserted from the Service of the Colony of Connecticut, at Sheffield . . . 7th Company of the 6th Regiment . . . Had on . . . a Pair of Drab Breeches " advertised in The Norwich Packet of 1775 by personal communication with Mike Barbieri. Buff colored linen thread for hand sewing is just a shade lighter than this fabric. For hand sewing button holes try the beigh quilter's thread or drab buttonhole twist.
