Which reproduction uniforms are the best?

I am sure anyone doing reenactments has a good idea. I have some stuff I bought and can share it with all of you.

Re: Which reproduction uniforms are the best?

I got an AntZ/Prichen/Chen (he got more aliasses) repro uniform.
Great uniform. There are some old-stocks on ebay for sell but mostly only the tunic(jacket).
I think that Barry/Spearhead on ebay has better uniforms.

OR else Gavin militaria.

Re: Which reproduction uniforms are the best?

I have one from reww2.com, looks good but their biggest size is 48 (chest), fits but if you are moving your arms , you may rip an armpit. I bought one from hikishop , they have a larger size (52 chest) but the lenght of the arms is past the tunic. If you look at pictures ( I have alot in my book) the tunic is past the sleeve or equal to it. In the pictures the soldiers' sleeves are shorter, so it may be that the sleeves from hikishop are a bit too long? I also have short pants from hessianantiques, their color has a little more brown but what I like is that the belt is of a stronger material unlike reww2.com and hikishop. The trouble with buying online is you cant feel or try on the uniforms, yes you can return them but shipping can be expensive compared to the cost of the item. I also have short DAK boots from achtung-blitzkrieg.com. I am looking to buy the taller boots, have you seen upfront the different manufactors boots?

hessianantiques has old stock from Antz great stuff! But if it is not Antz you got Sturm/Mil-tec stuf.

I haven't seen any hiki stuf in real life so i can't tell anything about it.

Re: Which reproduction uniforms are the best?

If i was you i would first look around who can provide a complete set (Jacket+Trousers+cap/hat) that is colour match.

The only 2 repro's i know are Sturm/Mil-tec and Speahead.
(then i would go for spearhead)
http://stores.ebay.com/Spearhead-Milita … amp;_pgn=1

Search for Tropical of DAK and you will get the most afrikakorps stuff.
Send him a PM and aks him what he can mean for you, because he has more stuff instock then he place on his ebay-store.
He also got DAK ovegoats.

Re: Which reproduction uniforms are the best?

It doesnt have to be a perfect color match. It would probably look weird since in real life, a color match wasnt priority #1 during the war, and a mismatch would probably look better / be more authentic.

If you find ant-z stuff somewhere, go for them instead of Spearheads stuff.

I have ordered a DAK cap from GD43 tailor. http://www.gd43.com/
