The Men’s Museum Teddy Roosevelt Costume includes:
War hero, Rough Rider, the builder of the Panama Canal, breaker of trusts, Man’s Man and President of the United States, Teddy Roosevelt is one of the greatest heroes of America – one of four men immortalized upon Mount Rushmore. Not to mention Robin Williams’ hilarious portrayal of the man in the films Night at the Museum. Time to get ready; you’ve got a country to lead into the 20th Century.
The costume’s jacket and pants depict Teddy Roosevelt’s favored army days, when he led the charge up San Juan hill at the head of a pack of roughriders including Black Jack Pershing. The pieces are made of tough canvas-like fabric, soft to the touch, studded with brass buttons on the front, both pockets and upon the navy blue shoulder-boards. Long cuffs match the shoulders, as does the collar which is embossed with the letters U.S.V. – United States Volunteers. The jacket fits with a wide belt and brass buckle. Atop Roosevelt’s head perches his famous Rough Riders’ hat, brim pinned jauntily upon the left side.
Charge into Halloween this year, ready to take on the wildest Halloween parties like a bull moose. Add a sabre, a pair of glasses and a big smile showing plenty of teeth as you embrace the bully spirit of Teddy Roosevelt, America’s 26th President.
