Best Answer

During the Australian gold rush period bushrangers wore the typical dress of the day, that is moleskin or cord material trousers, shirts with long sleeves and collars and sometimes a buttoned waistcoat over the top. They often wore a cravat or neckerchief under the collar like a tie and a straw hat called a cabbage tree, because it was made locally from the plaited cabbagetree palm leaf. They wore boots for riding and carried hand guns pushed into the waist bands of their trousers or in a gun holster. Their guns might be stolen from troopers or settlers when they raided their homesteads. When their clothes got too old or dirty, they'd just steal more so were often quite well dressed.
