So you've been looking for an accurate, high quality reproduction of one of the nicest looking uniforms of the First World War, but that cheap Chinese stuff just isn't cutting it. Well, these are made by an actual tailor using extremely high quality 100% wool material and getting the details of the originals as close as we possibly can.
This listing is for the M1910 Austro-Hungarian "Hechtgrau" (Pike Gray) tunic. Featuring scalloped pockets just like the originals, and using a wool that's so close in color it's hard to tell it from an original, these are made to be as accurate and great for reenacting as possible. The Austro-Hungarian military entered the First World War with this uniform, and it was worn throughout the entire conflict. Starting in 1916, a field gray uniform of the almost same pattern was introduced, but often times soldiers would wear a mix-match of field gray and pike gray until the war's end.
I can usually get just about any collar waffenfarbe for the collar tabs. If you don't make a note, or send an e-mail, the tunic will have the standard dark green for Infantry.
Sizing: I will need you to do your part on this, as if you do it correctly, the uniform will fit like a glove.
Step 1- Have SOMEONE ELSE measure the required measurements with a tailor's tape (worth the $2 at Wal Mart). If you measure yourself, the numbers will be off. Just trust me on this, it's very important.
Step 2- Make sure you are measuring the correct spot. For the Chest, measure just below your armpits and around your upper ribcage. Finally, for the Waist, measure at your navel (bellybutton), not your hips which is the modern "waist" it seems. If you require a longer/taller uniform, please shoot me an e-mail with the length from your shoulder to your hips to make sure it's long/short enough. I know this sounds like a lot, but it will avoid a LOT of issues with sizing.
One Final Note, I need you to read this before ordering: This is a made-to-order item, which means once you order, I will place an order with your provided measurements (and details if applicable) to the tailor. Then he will begin making your uniform. This process from start to finish to shipping to you receiving the item can take 6-8 weeks to get completely done. Sometimes the wait time will be shorter, other times it COULD be longer, but in that event, I will let you know if there's a delay. You can't rush a great thing, and trust me, these are DEFINITELY worth the wait.
