Well, apparently we're not the only ones getting a uniform... Though mine is "only" a captain's. Wasn't yours too, Rob?

I have the broadcloth. Just need to get Mrs Bligh interested in producing it for me.
Where did you source your Lace and buttons Jonas?

I've recently found a new source, Hand & Lock. It has been around since 1767. They have a lot of lace in different prices. It's well I didn't find the real gold one. It'd be 1000... instead of 100 I payed from Military Heritage.

Thanks Jonas.
I will now need to do some serious considerations as to if I can stand the cost.

There is an even cheaper one available at Hand & Lock.

You may even find some in ordinary sewing shops. In my book there's even a naval coat with army lace.

The admiral here above used "incorrect" lace but still look good.

For the correct buttons:

Not the cheapest as you need 36 of them and another pair on the shoulders. I used some I found in a sewing shop that has the same motif but isn't flat but a little domed.

Thanks again Jonas. this is building into something passable without costing a mint now.
