Can anyone point me in the right direction? I am looking for a good reproduction set of ARP Pattern 41 Bluette Overalls or a source for modern overalls that can be converted without too much trouble or even a sewing pattern will do. This is one of the last bit of kit I am really in need of.
Photos are of my ARP impression.
Cheers

Was hoping someone would have responded as I'm in the same boat.

Just searched "ww2 arp overalls" and found these in the "images":-

http://www.replicawarehouse.co.uk/

https://khaki-on-campaign.webs.com/apps ... =166353873

I've never dealt with either company so can't comment on the quality of either boiler suit.

Khaki on Campaign is absolute top notch stuff but is always extremely busy and turn over times can be extreme.
Replica Warehouse is asking £295.00 for their repro coveralls which is way more than I’m willing to spend.
I’ve been in touch with Soldier of Fortune and they are unwilling to produce ARP uniforms.
I’ve had CD battledress custom made by Sanjay and those are unsatisfactory so I had to use another dealer to make my CD battledress.
As I’m located in the U.S. it’s near impossible to find original stuff without paying the high shipping costs from the U.K.

I actually ordered a pair from them and am awaiting delivery. Will let you know what I think
when received.

After waiting over four months for a pair of coveralls from the 1940’s shop I was given a full refund.
The shop claims that the item was posted but can not produce an international tracking number as proof of shipment.
