The uniforms here give a good indication of how the appearance of the shako could vary between units. On these four men the shako lace is indicated as a metallic color, but other sources indicate yellow. One minor error on figures 1 and 3 is that the 1833 coat is shown with white piping when it should be red. Numbers 2 and 3 wear the medium blue trousers that usually had a red trouser seam stripe. Grey trousers were an alternative to the white or blue versions.
