The Mummy clothes

  1. More like the second one but in a russet brown leather with a wider wristband, and I think that Lancealot is correct, it was a compass. Either way it is pretty cool looking.

    Size "small" conspiracy?

    I raise you the "not long enough in the frikkin' inseam" tragedy. :mad:

    If you want khakis or slacks in a true "medium" (32-34) waist with an inseam of longer than 34 you will be hard pressed to find them off the rack anywhere.

    Even most catalog's stop at 34 for some reason.

    But I'm not bitter. :rolleyes:
  3. Nick, thanks for that link! Those breeches are great, and pretty affordable to boot. I've been holding off spending $75-100 on a pair of breeches I wear once a year! Do you know if these have suspender buttons?

    Ken, I am often envious of people that can fit into all the vintage uniforms I see on eBay. I wish I could fit into all the 38R chocolate service jackets or 28 waist pinks, so don't complain too much. My problem is the gangly arm issue, and Orvis doesn't make an India Officer's Shirt for me either. I often complain that I have to pay extra for tall sizes (when they even make them), but I get round sizes for free! I end up getting most of my shirts tailored to take about 4-6 inches out of the belly so I don't get a bolloon of fabric billowing out behind me. I resent having to pay for my shirts twice, too.

    One other thing to consider, Ken, is that if you like the look of the leather holsters, but don't need the guns, maybe a pair of plain leather suspenders would work. I bought a pair sometime ago for that very reason, to evoke the look without the need for the holsters. I really like them, though I only have a couple pairs of pants with suspender buttons.

    the scoop on the jodphurs from Buck.

    "Only belt loops. One would have to add the suspender buttons. "

    Nick, those trousers are great... but how do I order them? What is the price? Have I missed a link earlier in the thread?

    Praise the Lord! Something from Orvis that fits!
  7. That's no biggie. That's still a great price. I keep checking eBay for breeches, and either only get modern ones, or get vintage ones that are too small or too expensive or too beat up.... I may be getting in touch with Buck pretty darn soon!

    I just checked out Todds Costumes and saw that they have O'Connell's gauntlets for sale, but no pics. I emailed so I'll post up if/when I get something back.

    Now... does anybody have any pics of O'Connell's outfit, focusing particularly on the boots?

    I love that wristwatch!

    Hey, that's a cool wristwatch. Where can I get a band like that one?

    Trying to figure out why I live in the middle of a cornfield again...

    And ditto on that watch - where does it come from?

    If you'd watched enough movies, you'd know that nothing good ever comes out of a cornfield...except maybe long dead baseball players.

    And ditto again on the watch covers.

    Try finding vintage for anyone over about 5'10 and size 40 or 42 - slim pickins there as well. It's just that they can sell more for those who aren't too tall or too short (of course, they also determine short, tall and normal).
  15. Ironically, Slim Pickens wasn't all that small. lol
  16. I'm giving this thread a bump due to BJonas' interest in another thread, and I see an answer was never posted on the covered watch bands. I have the brown band, that I got from Ofrei, though their website seems to be down at the moment. I do not recommend that band. The operation is very awkward, and I wore the thing for about ten minutes before deciding I was better off without it. Anybody that's curious is welcome to give it a try. It's sitting in a drawer at home.

    I also had a repro of the black one, though in brown, which is similar to the watch band that the Commonwealth forces, Australia, I think, issued in WWI for trench warfare. The repro I had looked great. Unfortunately the first time I got it wet the leather literally disintegrated on the spot. When I say "literally disintegrated" I am not exaggerating! It became gummy and stretchy and fell to bits, and the watch fell right off my wrist within about 30 seconds. Obviously intended for display purposes only.

    The Commonwealth style band worked great before it got wet, and I really liked it. The way the cover is attached made it very convenient to quickly pop it open to see the time and snap it down easily. If anyone can find a higher quality repro I'd get another one in a second.
  17. Jacket & Boots

    Anyone know where I could find the field jacket Rick wears in The Mummy 1?
    I've been looking for it online but don't know where to look as the most I know about it is that it's supposed to be French Foreign Legion, late 1890s/early 1900s... If someone at least knows what the name/style of jacket was, it would be a great help!

    Also I'm wondering if y'all think these boots would look vintage enough for an explorer/adventurer of that era....

  18. Wasn't he supposed to be with the French Foreign Legion in the first film? If you figure out what the outfit he wad with was suposed to be, that'll get you cloer the jacket. Those boots you posted look great, though the soles look glaringly wrong. I should have thought a leather sole, with perhaps a rubber overlay, or otherwise hobnails, would be more correct.

  20. The cowboy wrist braces made me think, I had seen them in another film on a gunfighter but not sure. It may have been the film "Judge Roy Bean" I think the Judge kills the gunfighter and takes the wrist cuff things as part of his daily dress.:eek:fftopic:
