Hi

I just received the Madison boots ($100 off Amazon new).  They fit pretty well but are slicker than snot on the bottom.  If memory serves it was recommended to resole these with a rubber sole to avoid sliding all over creation.  I think I would at least put the tap (little leather do-hicky) on the front of the sole.

add a sole or not?

Thanks

Hi again

Now I obviously need to get the Leggings from WPG.  When measuring, over the pants or not?

Personally, I'd have rubber soles put on them.  Grass is really slick, especially on the slopes.  I have no interest in falling down, especially when I'm holding a rifle.

Yes, over the trousers at the largest part of the calf.

Check the ordering instructions for each item WPG lists, as wool and cotton items could be larger/smaller than what you normally wear.  I saw the 1916 Uniform Shirt listed, read the reviews and ordered one size larger than I wear and it fits fine, but that's just my experience.  For cartridge belts, e-mail to check sizes - replies are timely.

Yes, I received a pair of WWII era Summer White enlisted US navy trousers, I normally wear a 34" waist but ordered them in 36" and found them to be snug.
