Could anyone help me figure out the size I might wear? Im 5,8 and skinny so width will not be a problem but I am worried about length should I get a size small or medium german m43 tunic if Im 5,8? Any help is appreciated, thanks!
When looking at tunics, most sites have sizing charts for their products. These will require you to measure areas such as your chest, arms, etc. Use the results to find what best fits you. If the site doesn't have a chart listed, use sizing charts from other reenacting vendor sites to pick your size. It may not match up perfectly, but usually they are very close. To measure, use a fabric ruler which can be bought at most any fabric or sewing store. Otherwise, use a string to measure yourself. Then lay the string down so it sits straight and measure how long it is. As said above, the chest measurement is usually what the size revolves around. If you have, for example a 42" chest size, and they have a size that has a 42" chest, you may want to order the size up to avoid a super tight fit. Hope this helps!
You also have to look out for your arm length. I am slim as well but I am almost 6', and I have longer than average arms. I usually have to order a size larger tunic/jacket so the sleeves aren't too short. If you're young, do as 2ndBat says and order a bit larger, you'll grow into it. Depending on how young you are, you may be able to get a bearing on how big you'll grow fully by looking at your parents. I'm not growing any taller, and my clothes sizes are pretty much interchangeable with my fathers. Could help you down the road not needing to get another uniform because you just outgrew your last set.

Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
