What color do you think the one from the Derricke illustration is?
I would not want to speculate, based on Derricke's illustration for color. Based on the two Scotish examples, they appear to be an unbleached muslin or canvas, tan in color I would guess.
I don't know about that the more I look at the O'Neill one and compare to the Derrick the more similiariaties I see. For instance the flair at the bottom. I think Derrick was trying to portray something similiar to O'Neills and his is reddish looking.
Do you think the straps were in the back, sides or front?
