On the site of the dutch army museum a series of 42 plates is reproduced made by Dr de Wilde on uniforms of the 1690 period. The info is based on several sources, but mainly on ducuments regarding the export of cloth to the troops to other countries or provinces. (All export had to be taxed and documented of course!)

From these documentents and the general look of a uniform it could be deduced which particular clots was used for what. (Most of the cloth was used for the coat, and a smaller portion for cuffs and the like.)

The above pic shows the dutch guards, this time in a blue/yellow uniform and this picture is based on a picture that was sadly destroyed in 1944.

More pictures here.
