Great reproduction, and they've got a lot of cool stuff on their website as well. The cost is about on par with what most reproductions will be like.

Other than not being close at all, yeah, great repros. If one doesn't care about faithfulness to the original pattern, go for it. It's a very effective pattern.

Well the shirt is supposed to be a different cut, but designed based upon an original Rhodie shirt. I could be wrong, so there is that. To be fair I don't know of any accurate repros.

If they are meant to be that way, no worries. I can't speak for the quality, but the pattern seems to be good-to-go, as does the construction. All the best to them.

Finding good repro suppliers is not easy, but I do have the contact info for a couple, and a couple of shirts are on the way from Portugal, with trousers, jackets, and caps to be produced in the near future.
