Gavin M42 Tunic?

Post by ReenactorGuy556 »

Hello. I am dabbling in the hobby and am looking into buying a tunic. From all of the research I have done and helpful topics on this forum it seems like an M42 would be a good place to start. My only hold back is that I am on a VERY strict budget. From everything that I have read it seems that Gavin has a good quality tunic for its price point, which is around what I can spend. Would this be a good choice or is another tunic or retailer better? Thank you in advance for all of your help.

we don't know who you are or where you are, which unit you are with etc. It makes it difficult to give a reasonable answer.

Hmm... might I say you've joined the wrong hobby if you can't spend much money.

Panther use cotton lining as common for pre 42 tunics, to really produce the norm they need to change to rayon/artificial silk in their M42 tunics

I gather AtF own brand asian tunics have those nice correct shiny rayon like linings...
