Did a good job but required lots of groundwork!
The costume looks good to the untrained eye but is not very accurate to detail... but then it is roughly 20% of the price of the real deal! I don't think, however, that excuses one of the two I ordered arriving with a button missing from the tunic, meaning I had to try and find another one last minute, and as they're quite specific and unique I ended up having to replace the "pocket" buttons with similar ones to get a spare - on both costumes to keep the uniformity! I say "pocket" because they're really just flaps for effect... again, fair enough, it's only a costume. But the ONLY pocket the costume has is a very loose one on the right bum cheek, not even with a flap and definitely not wallet-safe! So I had more groundwork to do in finding a waist wallet (and lets face it, wearing this is likely to be done in a venue that primarily sells alcohol, so cash carrying facilities are a must!) And then there's the gloves. More like clown gloves than dress gloves. Very thin, almost see-through material that barely reached the wrist so they were quite disappointing, especially when they go for Â£2-3 in the local army surplus store - when they've got them in! The hat wasn't the best either... maybe I'm being too picky now but the only thing making the top flat is a plastic ring that's not secured to the rim so the hat looks more like something a NYPD cop or a milkman would wear. With a bit of work this can be rectified by stitch-tacking the ring to the seam so the top remains tight but you won't get an iron in there! The other minor gripe I had was the ironing! It definitely needed the creases removing after p&p but there were no instructions either not to or how to iron them out, so that was a bit nerve-wracking! In the end after some careful steamwork and half a tin of starch on the shoulderboards it was looking fairly shipshape! All-in-all though and in the end the costumes worked quite well. They achieved the desired effect and serve their purpose well - albeit after needing a few "finishing touches"!
