Dragged out my WWII Impressions Marine khakis... I LOVE ATF kit but I think they have missed the mark with colours on these. The originals in my reference books are quite different to the ATF items. They appear to have matched the weight of the shirt fabric. It is thinner/lighter than Army khaki fabric.I have a set of WWII Impressions USMC khakis... now ATF are doing the USMC I MIGHT commit to a pair of original SGT chevrons.... excited..
Keen to see what you think of these... Any idea who makes them? Is it Replicaters in India...
Aye, I used to have some minty originals that I wore on occasion but while the waist fit well there was enough spare room elsewhere to offer a home to a couple of lodgersOriginal cut ones are awful, i have a large sized pair. Just watch “Sgt Bilko”, the supposedly squared away ones look terrible. Even MacArthur couldn’t pull it off.
I’ll stick with my BR ones thank you very much.
No surprise, Rollin addresses and defends his recreation of the Marine khakis here:Dragged out my WWII Impressions Marine khakis... I LOVE ATF kit but I think they have missed the mark with colours on these. The originals in my reference books are quite different to the ATF items.
I will Dmitry. I'll do it tomorrow as I've just come off night shifts and I'm pretty beat - my first day off them and I'm always a zombie and have no energy. I'll be better tomorrow and the timer function will be employed!Tim, you just have to do a review.
You don't have to make a Viking woman angry I think your phone has a timer function and you can do it yourself. It's very interesting to see how they fit. Photos of pants on the floor are uninformative
Hi Chris,What would one say about sizing.
I'm 36 waist some pants are ok and others are like a 32 I never know if to go bigger but 38 is just to dam big.
I have a solutionMy Kay Canvas summer chinos from Soldier of Fortune arrived today and I'm as happy as a dog with two dongers!
These are terrific quality and I mean top bloody notch, colour is spot on and they fit just perfectly, proper high waist, the cut is nice, proper straight leg, super comfy to wear but without the saggy arse crap I've seen some repros have.
I was so impressed that I went online within 5 minutes of getting them and trying them on, and ordered another pair.
I'll endeavour to take some fit photos but the better half is a proper old school Viking and views such requests as "can you take photos of me wearing a pair of pants so I can show a bunch of random guys around the world what my arse looks like in them" as both exceedingly unmanly and unbecoming, so I might have to figure out the timer thingy on the phone and see what I can do.
But needless to say these are bloody terrific strides and if anyone is sitting on the fence about them I'd say go for it.
Very, very highly recommended!
