Spearhead Militaria on eBay do them, but I've linked to their actual website.

Hope this helps.

I'm not sure myself, as I don't own one. Comparing pics of it to pics of originals might give you an idea of the quality of the cut. I'm very sure I've seen a spearhead type 2 smock before and nothing particularly stuck out as bad quality, the stitching seemed strong.

No problem mate. See if someone on here can offer a second opinion first though, I'm only going off of what I've seen someone else wearing. :good:
