    Sorry Mike, I should probably hold my tongue but that hat looks kinda dorky to me

      I agree, smart looking but still practical.

      Edit-sorry, I mistook which uniform was being refered to. This is the one I like, not sure of outfit:

                      Must admit the French cavalry had very colourful and varied uniforms, i saw a great picture a few years back of a re-enactor dressed as a general of Imperial guard horse artillery, there was so much gold braid on it you could hardly see the uniform colour underneath, i have yet to find that photo again.

                            Interesting to see the gorget still in use on those chaps. For some reason, I thought they had gone out of style in the years following the American Revolution, but apparently not.

                              Zouave,

                              Can you post some pics of Napoleon's Polish Lancers for me? Mine disappeared for some reason.

                                The bill on the hat, which seemed to be missing on original image, makes a major difference. Second image looks smart, I agree.
