So many of them look so much alike!  It's hard to tell if this image has been colorized correctly or not:

Re Reply #47:  "It's hard to tell if this image has been colorized correctly or not."     EXACTLY!!!   This is my chief complaint re the tiresome and multitudinous  attempts  of mainly the starry-eyed youngsters who rush to proudly show their latest colorings to the adulation of like others (some VERY professionally done and others who can barely "stay within the lines").  While much discussion is engendered as to the "EXACT" color of the hair and eyes,  it certainly appears to me that most DO NOT RESEARCH the colors of the breast stars, ribbands of the same, (colors that are KNOWN to be correct from surviving examples), etc.  thus inventing imaginary order colors, uniform colors, etc. that are NOT accurate for the sake of a "pretty" picture.       AP

Doubt the lavender-colored collar as well.

Indeed!  Probably to harmonize with the flowers !!!!!  (But then can we be certain of THEIR colors?  Probably based on the Empress's known preference for mauve/lavender colors. The words "artistic license " come to mind, which can cleverly cover a variety of ills.)  AP

Actually, this one isn’t too far from the real thing : uniform should be a little more greenish but overall it’s one of the better colorized pics I’ve seen. The « lavender » colour had nothing to do with Empress : it was the traditional raspberry («malinovyi») colour used by Rifle regiments and the Ural Cosssacks (see photo of Alexei’s uniform of the 1st His Majesty’s Ural Cossack Sotnia posted by Grand Duchess Ally). The colorized photo shows the Tsarevich in the uniform of the 4th Guards' « Imperial Family » Rifle Regiment which had a unique pattern of uniform with a tunic based on the old Russian half-kaftan, worn on a raspberry satin shirt, and baggy trousers. The astrakhan lined cap was based on the Polish « konfederatka ».

Here is a photo showing shoulder boards from the 1st « His Majesty’s » Guards' Rifle Regiment on a correct shade of Guard’s pattern « Tsar’s green » colour (teale green) in use since 1908.

I know this is an old thread but I found a uniform case that belonged to Alexei.

Does this look like the Tsarevich's hat? It's for sale on Ebay with a very reasonable price of$89.00.

Epaulettes, hat, & boots:




Is it "Standart" that is written in his hat?
