These guys should have battledress in your size, as well as Khaki Drill. I personally don't have any experience with their BD, though I do know that loads of people on here use it and have no major problems except for the cut of the blouses being a bit long to compensate for the larger gent, but I do have theirs KD and can say that it is very nice.
Hope this helps. :good:

I got mine from Soldier of Fortune, it's a 44". Fits really well and is very comfy.
Regards,

Ralph

Just go a size up on the chest if in doubt. I'm a 44' with a gut that's expanded due to all that muscle and solid rib cage structure... Fits me fine with room to spare.

The SoF uniforms are basically just the What Price Glory ones with a new label and double the price.

But yes, they do a generous range of sizes.

My BD is SoF, but I got all my KD stuff straight from WPG.

The British kit from Epic militaria is OK too, but it seems their site is unresponsive at this precise moment.

Taller/larger gentlemen will need to make sure they get long cross straps for their webbing, although if you aren't planning on hanging a ton of stuff off the end (e-tools, small pack in marching order etc) it probably doesn't matter so much.

Specifically for the Kasserine Game, you can pretty much wear what you like, BD/KD or a mixture but you'll get a lot more use out of a set of Battledress. If you want to do a 'North African' look, then a cheap khaki jumper over BD trousers looks the part, such as some of these fine chaps.

My helmet cover is just a bit of sacking with a brown helmet net over it, much easier then repainting the helmet :) There a few other people in jumpers too if you look carefully.

Basically, any wool / KD combination.
