The dress of general officers appears, perhaps with the exception of the (blue) colour and the cut of the cloth dictated by fashion, to have been left up to personal taste of the individual, at least as far as the accessories of the outer garments were concerned (SGBH, 36). Generals who were also owners (Inhaber) of a regiment, probably wore the uniform of their regiment with silver or gold embroidery according to their rank.

On 5 Julio 1759, the generals of the Imperial Army were instructed by the Emperor, to wear the white uniform with red facings of the Austrian general officers (SGBH, 1083). Apparently, this regulation was meant to minimize the danger of uniform confusion, but it is not known if Bavarian generals of the Reichsarmee complied with it.

The decree of 16 Marzo 1774 finally introduced a uniform dress-regulation for Bavarian generals: blue coat with silver embroidery differing by rank, based on approved patterns, black velveteen facings replacing the formerly blue facings; the measurements of length and width, as well as the design of the embroidery did not permit any variation. Because the previous uniform had been considered too valuable to be worn as a campaign uniform, generals received a coat with plain silver embroidery and straw-coloured lining, white buttons and black velveteen facings with standardized embroidery, besides straw-coloured vests and breeches of cloth (SGBH, 36–37).

Uniforme de Campagne de 1774

  • blue coat with straw-coloured lining and white buttons
  • black velveteen facings, with standard embroidery
  • black stock with silver embroidery
  • straw-coloured vest (from 11 Janvier 1775 with white standardized edging as a distinction for Statthalter, City and Fortress Commandants)
  • white-blue sash (worn from 3 Janvier 1775 on duty and for festivities)
  • straw-coloured breeches
  • black riding boots
  • black tricornio hat with white feather edging and black cockade
  • red shabraque and pistol covers with silver edging

If owners of regiments already owned embroidered regimental uniforms, they were permitted to wear them out, but only in conjunction with the regulation vest and breeches (SGBH, 37).
