Can't fault this seller

No idea on the clothes. But the boots are not a great repro... possibly Chinese army surplus... anyway there was a short discussion over at the red army re-enacting forums...

I just got a complete M43 uniform from him, plus belt and various bits of webbing.

Decent stuff, lightning fast service (week and a half from China) anda good price.

I'd just be a bit cautious about those tunic sizes, 'M 42-44"', I don't think so, more like M 40-41, which is a good job as I'm nearer to 40 than 44. Breeches are fine though.

Cheers

Are you happy with the color of the uniform?
I was thinking to order a complete set myself but they appear much too light colored on his site? Or is it just the photos?

I got a pair of breeches from him and the colour is fine. pretty much the same as a post war pair I've got, but they do shrink a bit in the wash so take that into account when picking the size

They are a decent mid-khaki which looks fine and it matches my existing pilotka very well. I think some of the photos are a bit off, the grenade pouches look almost white in the pics but they are the same khaki colour as everything else in the flesh.
