Shinel greatcoat bulk order

I've been in contact with a supplier in Eastern Europe who is able to supply Soviet shinel greatcoats at reasonable prices. I was wondering therefore if anyone would be interested in placing a bulk order to help reduce costs further. Currently if I order 5 then the price is £35 posted per coat, with larger orders the cost would decrease further. All sizes are available from S to XXL. He also has politka sidecaps and canteens with carriers he can supply in bulk. He may also have other suitable items but I will have to ask on request as he mostly stocks postwar gear.

Is anyone interested in partaking in an order?

The List. Crossed out = paid
2 politkas- Mi-go
1 Plash -Evo
10 canteens + covers-
Sean, B&A(2),Mi-go (2), Sgt Heide Oddball, Jay, Ranj.
12 Shinels-
1 46-3 Carly
1 50-3 Jay.
2 50-4 Wildfire, & Mi No2 (Dan)
4 52-4 Headshot, Wladek & Oddball, PPanzer.
2 54-3 Heide, Mi-go-a-go-go
1 54-4 Sean
1 60-5 Poacher

I'd go for an XXL at that price.

I'm interested... though mostly in the other items he has as I'd rather not clutter the house up with another greatcoat... they're big and bulky items!

I'd be interested as well. A bulk order makes more sense postage wise. It's not Front of Russia is it Rich? He's got some nice stuff!

Has Plashs but only the late model ones with brass grommets. Same with Vyeshch-myeshok back packs and mosin nagant pouches.

I'd be interested Lardass. What size would you recommend for me? I'm 6', 42"chest.

I'll do it by proper sizes which i'll ask for when I go to place the order. You'll be wanting a 52-4. Size wise its basically just the size in inches plus 10. the second number is the length going 1 to 5.

It's not Front of Russia is it Rich? He's got some nice stuff!

It's not Front of Russia, Alex's Shinels are more expensive. He does do bulk orders though if people are interested in getting kit from him. There are few things I'm interested in myself. If people let me know exactly what they want in terms of kit I can email Alex and get a quote. I can always get the greatcoats from my guy and place an order for other ww2 kit from FoR if that works out cheaper.

I emailed Alex the other day about some stuff but am more than happy to hold off to see if anyone else wants to order in bulk.

Still up for a cheap shinel though. I think I need 54/56 being a 44" chest?

A 54 should do you fine, they're designed to fit over other layers so no need to buy a size up. I'm guessing you'll need a size 3 height wise.

Yes, although you may need a 60 as the +10 rules gets out of alignment on the larger sizes. Finding one that size my be tricky. Size 5s and anything over a 56-58 chest are rare, too many skinny Russians. I'll have to ask him.

Looks like you're going to be a "hero of the Soviet Union" Rich, if you kit everyone out and help fill the ranks for glorious Mother Russia, :good:

I've asked about a size 60-5 shinel and he says he should have some. :good:

When you say short you mean a size 3? I seem to remember you were over 5ft (thats basically what size 1 is) last time I saw you. :lol: I'll see if I can get the hats and canteens chucked in once the order is sorted. :good: Size 58 should be fine, its onl if you have a really fat 60+ head that things get tricky.

Looks like you're going to be a "hero of the Soviet Union" Rich, if you kit everyone out and help fill the ranks for glorious Mother Russia,

I wonder if there is a Soviet medal for supplying the troops? :lol: I'm definitely going to have to make a list though or I'm going to get lost.

The list price is £33 but £20 of that is postage so it should be rather less than that.
