Colonial Chic: 1880s French Colonial Militiaman Lead Soldier

Oh, what the military has done for fashion - khakki pants, pith helmets and jungle whites. The colonial age may have been bloody, gluttonous and evil, but there were fewer times when a soldier could look as handsome (Vincent Perez' Jean-Baptiste in Indochine serves as a very nice live action example). During those times when you're away from the DVD player, you can enjoy the look on a smaller scale with this CBG Minot lead soldier. He's up for auction on ebay until Feb. 24th with a minimum bid currently at $17.99.
