Wanted: Napoleonic Uniform

Discussion in 'Classified Ads' started by Major_Sharpe, Apr 13, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Amate of mine has stupidly decided to have a Napoleonic themed birthday bash and wants all the blokes in suitable attire.

    Does anyone know of any Napoleonic uniform dealers, have one for sale or has one that could be lent to me for a weekend?

    Cheers,

    Sharpie.
     
  2. depending on your size and locale could probably loan you one, otherwise most are made to measure, a few fancy dress shops stock napoleonic esque uniforms.
     
  3. Gate a mate to go with you and hire a white horse and go as 'Copenhagen' !
     
  4. And old greatcoat, some old boots/shoes with lots of holes, a scarf, and a waterbottle on a piece of string and hey presto retreat from Moscow or a Marie Louise 1813.

    I've got the one from acefancydress. It's pretty decent quality for what you're paying to be honest.

    Funnily enough, the mess pres (pongo Sergeant Major!) wasn't amused at my choice of outfit at Pickle Night in a tri-service unit so he fined me a bottle of port for wearing it.

    Mind you, he fined me the previous year for insulting the RAF so at least he was consistent with me....
     
  9. I'm based in Portsmouth currently, cheers for the advice.
     
  10. Caubeen will have one or speak to diffduke he's still wearing his though
     
  11. Check your PM's...
