Manuel!

The pelisse and doloman of Alexandriiski hussars were:
till 1803 - crimson
from 1803 - black
The colours was changed by Alexandre I.
The crimson colours were adopted by Paul I in imitation of Fridrich the Great hussars.
So, Elting's description is absolutely correct and in Eylau and Friedland period the pelisse and doloman were black.

Best regards,
Igor
