Anyone bought OR seen khaki devil battledress? Reduced wages mean less options.

IIRC it looked just like the SOF/WPG offerings.

I have a set and it is Far superior to soldier of fortune.

Yes, I was rather confused by Paul's reply - so you have a set already, Paul, but want to know what it's like? :-s

I've heard nothing but good about Khaki Devils' work, but I didn't think it would be the brand to turn to when on a budget - they were, in my mind, what you turned to when you wanted 'the best' and had the money to back it up. I'm loving Panther Store's stuff. Great items for the money, but a little more expensive now that Brexit has ruined the exchange rate.

I bought a set. Nothing criptic.

Looked on their eBay auctions and the BD looked the same as the SOF/WPG. Same wool, cut everything. Unless they carry two styles? I prefer Panther Store. Just wish they made WW1/WW2 Service Dress.

It was rumoured but never appeared. I've compared it to sof in real life, remember photos don't always compare well. In fact the match to panther store wasn't far out.
