** Disclaimer**

Although every effort is made to ensure we replicate period costumes & Uniforms to correct patterns and design, we do not proclaim for these to be 100 % accurate. Designs and patterns may have been adapted to suit modern day wear and cleaning.

We carry a wide range of authentic & replica uniforms for hire, some of which date back to the 1930’s. However, although many of the uniforms we stock are originals, we cannot guarantee full authenticity such as Insignia, correct ranking & buttons. Where possible we do our very best to replicate as close as we are able to the original detail. Please ask if you have any specific style or detail that you need us to help with.
