Blue Uniform Coat, Swedish, 1756

 ''Model for a coat for the infantry, pattern 1756. Sometimes called the ‘late Carolean uniform’, it is in fact entirely different from the earlier coats. It is cut on the straight of the grain. The fronts are nearly entirely straight. The skirts are short and sparse. The side seams are much further towards the back, creating a cylindrical, straight and narrow silhouette'' From here
