Sizing Guide: How to measure yourself for a WWI or WWII uniform
Cap/Hat Size If your US fitted cap or EU hat size is not known, to determine your hat size, measure the circumference around your head, keeping the tape level and firm, across the temples and above the eyebrow ridges. Measure circumference of head just above top of ears. Wrap tape gently around head making certain tape lies midway on your occipital bone (that little bump in the middle of the back of your head). Don't pull the tape too tightly or your hat will fit that tightly. Measure 2 or 3 times to be accurate.
Chest (Across Nipples) Measure yourself (LOOSELY) around the fullest part of your chest, with your hands by your side, and your chest expanded. Keeping the tape measure level. Have someone else do measuring for you.
Waist (Belly Button) Measure yourself (LOOSELY) around the natural waistline (that is your belly button).
Inseam (Inside Leg) Measure yourself from the crotch to where your trousers normally sit on your shoe.
You MUST use a cloth/ tailoring measuring tape to size your body before ordering.
Please do not use the measurements from other garments when submitting size information.
Also, to get the most accurate number, it is best to take measurements while not wearing other layers of clothing.
Uniforms have been sized to accommodate for undergarments and the ability to move, especially around shoulders and waist, so we just need your body dimensions.
Please know, after you place your order, you will be contacted personally to confirm your measurements and size selections before any payment is processed or item sent to reconfirm body dimensions and desired fit.
If your size is not in stock, you will not be billed and contacted immediately before order is processed.

Just a quick note to say we are in the final stages of importing what may be one of the last large caches of original US WWII M1 helmets and liners (full cargo container full). To say this, along with being forced to run every strand of yarn on the three 80 year old original shuttle looms we had, has been a distraction the past 18 months, is putting it mildly, but we pulled it off.
All current custom helmet and clothing orders are being processed and will be updated as they go out the door.
More info, pics and video on the import and the final helmet webbing production will be posted over the next few months. At the moment we gotta get caught up on helmets... and make space!
