Could that have been achieved with gussets (if I understand that term correctly) rather than resorting to zippers?

Those are gussets. The zips are there to close them when they are not needed.

Ah, understood. Though isn't it possible to tailor with enough drape to avoid the necessity of the use of gussets? I wonder how colonial soldiers shot their rifles, rolled around in the fields, loaded cannons, etc... all with stiff buttoned-up coats.

I read somewhere that collars at one point (XIXth century, probably) were so stiff and high that soldiers could not aim their rifles properly.
