My cool Japanese gear arrived from Hiki on Friday.

Unfortunately the tunic and trousers are one size too small for me (XL).
- WWII Japan IJA Type 98 T98 Summer Field Trousers Pants
- WWII Japan IJA Type 98 T98 Summer Field Tunic Jacket

Happy to part with them both for £50.
Otherwise I will return them to Hiki.
I will be at the Eversley Osterbeek game. Can bring there to have a look at it.

If you want more gear, I am ordering the larger size uniform in the next week or so. Can add it to the order.
Banzaiii!!

Id like to try the jacket, hiki stuff is often a bit small. If you are putting an order in I'd like some rank badges ( I'll PM when I'm home later).

OK. I'll try the whole lot as it will do for Indochina as well. I'll send you a PM re the insignia.

Cheers

Lutz's 'Extra Large' uniform is a good fit for me, so I'll be keeping it and future purchasers beware. The jacket fits perfectly, the trousers are a bit loose around the waist and tight on my calves.

Extra Large my arse. Medium.

6'2", 34" waist.

As Chris says, the only real issue are are the bottom of the breeches, which are a bit tight around the calves. I run a fair bit so I do have muscled calves, but I'm no Chris Hoy. My Russian breeches are just the same, but being cotton they do give out a bit.

The jacket fits perfectly and is rather smart.

It is a real lottery with repro sizes, my "large" WPG KD shirt is about 2" short in the sleeves, but the trousers and shorts fit perfectly. Go figure.

just received my woollen cap with flaps and a jap grenade pouch from China. 2 weeks delivered. I reckon the grenade pouch will take 4 ball grenades. Hope I can pick some up at a game before June!
