From the Virginia Gazette 1760  "Had on, when he went away, an old red Waistcoat, without Sleeves, and a spotted Cotton Jacket with Sleeves had no Shirt, red Plush Breeches" 
Plush was a soft faced wool, much like velvet dyed in all manner of colors and was a popular choice for breeches, waistcoats and winter jackets.  It was worn by all social classes and appears in runaway accounts and in orders for livery. as well as tailors account books. This clear red color was found often in our personal research on Worsted as well as Woolen extant textiles.  Our wool is heavy enough for outerwear but soft enough for winter breeches, lady's capes, winter mitts, jackets and winter waistcoats.
