On the Don, on the other hand, they are more Russian/Slav/European. Hence, you see more dress shirts, or military parade-style jackets
Many, like these young cadets
wear Tsarist-era uniforms.
Some Cossacks use camouflage, for a more modern look, I guess
Some I simply do not recognize altogether, some **** they must have thrown together themselves, with no historic or cultural basis
Looks okay though. And it is not like anyone wants to come up to this man and tell him face to face his uniform is wrong lol
This fellow in Siberia is trying to be Chapayev, I guess http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasily_Chapayev
A Red, and not even a real Cossack, but, a good man though, great fighter. I guess I can get respecting him.
To me, most interesting thing is when different Cossacks and their colors mix together. Like, on the New Year episode of this match-making TV show we here, 'Davai Pozhenimsya' ('Lets get Married'), where they have one groom and three brides or one bride and three grooms competing for him/her. On this episode, first time ever, was a Cossack bride, 18 year old Ulyana, from Sochi (Kuban). All grooms were Cossack also, our women do not marry outside their ethnic group ever. Eventually, she chose 20 year old Pavel, a Terekian Cossack from Stavropolsky krai (over loud
objections of her father, who wanted her to go with Ilya, who was a Kubanian, like them. But, Terek wins again hahaha We are bigger men then all others, in all ways
Note the Red + White of Kuban and the Black & Blue of Terek.
I guess what I wonder is, what colors will their children have to wear??? The whole damn rainbow...
