I have finally gotten around to posting some photos of the uniform package I ordered from Remo last year. I got the wool uniform package plus some other goodies. I must say I was, and still am, quite pleased with it! The cut of the puttees make them much easier to wrap and the pantaloons are baggy and long enough that they reach the ankle.
Hereís a photo showing the uniform with Bersaglieri fiamme sewn on. Iíve worn it a few times since I got it last year, so the shirt is a bit faded:
The uniform package comes with your choice of mostrine and bustina fregio, however I had difficulty deciding and ending up ordering a few different ones. Hereís a photo showing the selection of distintivi I purchased:
Iíve got to say, the coastal artillery fregio is probably my favorite:
Besides the basic uniform package, I also got the tropical M42 Bustina, to which I made one modification. When I received it, the chin strap was sewn to the cap without buttons. Whilst this is authentic, I wanted the other style, so I sewed button holes and added original wood buttons. Iím sure Remo can and does make both kind, but I didnít specify. Here is a photo showing the modification I made:
And hereís a couple photos from my last event:
