I know you can get them from atthefront.com.  They do great World War 2 stuff.

RCJ, Thanks for the pics! Interesting concept. It looks almost like an old Sam Brown belt attached to the holster. I would need to modify the position of the belt loops a bit.

Same idea.
My thought being perhaps you could use a shortened shoulder strap without threading a belt through the belt loop.

Just like any shoulder holster, your off hand would naturally come up to steady the holster while pulling your sidearm, keeping the 180degree rule in mind.

Where can you find laces for WWI/II Leggings?

What Price Glory has them at $2.00 a pair.

The nice thing about What Price Glory is that they're sure to have something else you want/need as well!

What Price Glory has been the primary source for the Boer impression I'm putting together for next year's Muster. Specifically the Scandinavian Korps.

The quality of their products for such reasonable pricing, and the rapidity of delivery, can't be beat. Only had one goof-up and Jerry made it right immediately.

I think I understand what you're saying. Two straps. One around my neck and the other using the belt loops with a shorter strap around my chest. The holster and gun would sit straight up and down under my arm. Wouldn't the barrel of the gun be pointed behind me, even if only briefly, during the draw?
