My Dad has finally decided to get a uniform, and he has settled on Home Guard, looked at SOF but they dont do his size in Denims, what other suppliers are there?

Cheers

Josh

What Price Glory (USA) is discontinuing their denims so they have a sale on, but you can only get what they have in stock. A 52 long is the biggest listed.

SOF Denims are alright, got a pair myself for early war Home Guarding.

Looks rather good if you have a full set & carry a Pitchfork with it :P

Hi Hadeel, it's easy to explain - the guy pictured isn't me. I simply nabbed the best picture from my groups gallery to show how good the SOF denims were.

I'm in this picture though :)

Damn I reckon he must be in the Auxilliaries and doesnt want his identity known (very sensible by the way)

Was going to say that Battledress and Bayonet Denims are SUPERB.

Soldier of Fortune's Home Guard stuff has improved no end. Their denims used to have a very shiny, plasticy look but are now good (and £50 cheaper than Battledress and Bayonet). They have also improved their HG pouches and slider. They just need a decent-looking woollen FS cap in larger sizes...

The FS cap is a little... interesting, but it doesn't look too bad when worn around.
