an fyi to 'splain thins about the the english soldiers making fun of the colonials.

at the time, italians - or "macaronis" to the english, were considered to wear the best and most fashionable clothes.

as the song goes, "stuck a feather in his cap and called it macaroni". so, the english were mockingly calling an american that tried to dress up a macaroni.

just enough to piss off the uncivilized americans.
