We are not afraid of special orders! World War 1 is our primary focus, however, we have and can make special needs uniforms to meet your needs. From Napoleonic Belgian uniforms to current issue Iraqi General officer uniforms and fantasy theatrical uniforms for the "Tempest" we can do it. Please contact us with your needs.
We do not manufacture footwear but we can tell you where to get it! We gave it a try and it was beyond our knowledge, skills and abilities. For historical or modern shoes, boots or any footwear please see our friends at Civil War Boots. For large orders or contract orders we are happy to coordinate your footwear requirements through CWB for you.
We are always looking for things to use as prototypes or for our collection. We enjoy trading for original items as well as some firearms and bayonets.
