That's great!  This should be pinned at the top of the Barracks board, with frequent reminders to the members!

Very cool!  Especially since WPG is pretty much our go-to supplier now.

I clicked on the link and it goes straight to the WPG home page.  I assume that there is some sort of dark magic going on that lets Jerry know?

Pitspitr,

You may want to ask Jerry Lee how we can get stuff through the WPG website instead of ebay.  It seems as if a number of items go there first.  Maybe something could be worked out?

Yes, I'm an American and I am impatient. >:(....... :P

I'm working on it. There's something on E-bay that I want to order through the website. It is my understanding that Jerry is away from the office today, but I am working on it.

Me too, General, Sir ....

I am a Facebook "friend" of Jerry's and he just posted that he has flown back from Dubai, so hopefully will be available for contact now, or very soon.

His website is soup sandwich. >:(  I hate to say that because he is a great vendor but it is tough to find things on his site.  I searched all through the 1876-1938 and could not find  much of the Cavalry stuff listed on ebay. 

I hope someone here is close enough to him to encourage an overhaul of the site.  A pre 1902 section would help tremendously.  Lots of stuff in ebay cart I am just waiting to find  on his site to order.

I think most of it is in the 1878-1938 section of the American stuff.  Sometimes he has stuff that's only on e-Bay.  (I have no idea why.)

Yep, I contacted him one time over one of the mounted Mills belts that was on e-bay. He told me that they were only on e-bay

Ok.... :(.  I would prefer to order through the link and help this site but if it's only Ebay that won't help.

BTW Jerry now has a 5 button sack coat and the 1872 pleated blouse.

That pleated blouse is just plain ugly.

It is, however, "historically correct" as an issued garment.  (I don't do US military impressions, but understand from a friend who does that, odd as it may appear, it is noticeably "non-restricting" and quite comfortable ... which of course was the whole reason for it in the first place.)

His reaction is also historically correct, ;D and one of the reasons the blouse only lasted 2 years!

Yes, it is! (but I still want one someday to go with my "ugly" 1872 campaign hat)

I just received a shipment from WPG...from Dubai to my front door in 5 days.  Not bad since it entered the US at Cincinnati and was stuck in Customs for over 24 hours.  Received a pair of 1885 ("Saxony blue") trousers, Mills Belt, and brown leggings.  All excellent quality.  The trousers were already hemmed to length!  Luckily, just the right length.  Going to seamstress today to have NCO stripes applied.

Yep, those are UGLY too.  I found it somehow hilarious that I had a "historically correct reaction" to the UGLY 1872 Fatigue Blouse, but it was and still is UGLY. 

I did get an Indian War Tin Cup from WPG that I swear weighs about 3x what a Stainless of the same size weighs.
