I've always been a fan of the uniforms of the American volunteer ambulance groups in the First World War:
But I like their everyday or work uniform of sort: always in Renaissance style, but of simple cut, blueish-gray and with a beret (a beret basque more or less in the large style of the french Chasseurs Alpins). Very traditional yet simple and somehow utilitarian.
Plus, they have a very nice cloak or mantel for rainy and cold days

The 1912 Dutch uniform also had a certain Austrian influence to it, particularly in the form of the officer rank insignia and tall kepi. At the same time its greenish shade combined with the sidecap vaguely resembled the Wehrmacht Heer uniform. As far as uniforms go, since I'm an aviation buff, naturally I tend to like air force uniforms whether they be USAAF, RAF, or Luftwaffe.Originally Posted by lord_k
So many choices
A: The M36 Heer uniform.
B: AEF WW1 Winter uniform, preferibly USMC Forest Green.
On a side note it would be nice to see the Campaign Cover returned to general issue. Why you ask, because our current issue BDU is a dead,pardon the pun, ringer for the M1916 uniform. How strange the past comes back looking even better in updated material.
Yes, and she does make that uniform look very good too.
In regards to the Itailian uniform
WWII Civilian flight instructor "uniform." Wow!
WWII US European Theater combat uniforms are a favorite of mine...
an ancient thread revived... well, I think my favorites would be the levee dress uniform of the Ayrshire Yeomanry (tied with the levee uniform of the 11th Hussars), or the full dress uniform of the Queen's Body Guard for Scotland, the Royal Company of Archers.
Here's a bit of a puzzler. Can anyone identify the origin of the uniforms worn by these German troops in Poland in 1939? It's obviously not the M36 uniform.
