I've got an old Vietnam era boonie hat I wear somtimes while out doing
yard work. Other than that---many many years ago, I used to be a part
of the Renaissance Festival and the sword I used was a 130 year old
Masonic Lodge sword.

Anyone wear reproduction gear? I sometimes buy cheap reproductions, like say a m42 jump jacket, where a real one would be to rare or expensive.
I used to elicit both smiles and stares from my neighbors in Germany as a kid, with Stahlhelm, Italian Camo Jacket (Mom shortened it for me), and assorted Wehrmacht gear as I played "WWII" with my friends...You could get away with so much in the 70's as a kid, lol....

I can't see why anyone would want to wear their genuine wartime collectables. Re-enactors are well catered for without having to wear genuine pieces of uniform.
I must admit to being a wearer of the Flecktarn camouflage while shooting. It is damn good and blends in well with most backgrounds.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
Having been in the service for years, I dont usually wear any military items - whether they be camo or not, new or old.
Dont really know why, guess I just had enough wearing uniform related items (the exception being a pair of tan heavy duty desert boots, but they look like any quality boot on the civilian market).
I have no problem with others wearing uniforms or uniforms items of course. Why shouldnt they (especially on a dig) - as uniform jackets and trousers are often cheap, easily obtainable and hard wearing.
I like the idea of you wearing the first buckle you found.
(pics or it didnt happen!).
When I was tour guiding I always wore Australian army shirts, they are long sleeved good quality cotton shirts that are surprisingly cool on days that can get to 50C + in the desert country of the north west. I found them to be the best, anything else only lasted a couple of months before the sun had deteriorated the fabric to the point of the shirts literally falling apart, the army shirts lasted up to two years.
