corsasri,
Even if this is probably on the up-and-up, I still wouldn't even think of doing it. It is an open invitation for someone to put all the insignias on a fake uniform and do bad things. If you are not in the military don't try to impersonate one of Americas finest.:steamed:

By-the-way, please capitalize USAF if you don't mind.

Why does everyone jump on the hater wagon so quick. Maybe he or someone he knows is looking to collect different uniforms from branches of military. A buddy of mine collects all military hats from every military around the world.

Give the guy a break and help him out until you see he is not using it for the right intensions.

If its a hat its one thing... Its a Flight suit specifically.... I am sitting here in Iraq so I am a little leary when people ask for Uniforms who arent affiliated with the military. I just think a little more Information as to the use of said suit would help out.. sorry for my questioning but well its strange times in the world and you never really know whats coming up next... sorry

Someguy,
I am with you 100%. These are strange times and a request like this just doesn't sound Kosher. Sure there may be some logical explanation but as you pointed out more explanation would be helpful. It would not however, change my decision to help out. There are pawn shops all over the world so a flight suit could be purchased anywhere. It may be from the Bulgarian Army of 1940s vintage so who cares. NOT FROM THE CURRENT US MILITARY!!! NO WAY NO HOW!!
Someguy,
Thank you and your loved ones for your service and the dedication of your buddies and their families.
Stay safe !:tup:

<--- Agrees with someguy

If you're not in the military and not even from our country I find it hard to believe you would need a flight suit unless maybe it's for a play or something like that.

I still have all of my uniforms from the navy but I wouldn't get rid of them for anything. Times like these you never know just when and where a threat will come from.

Even with the threat of anyone buying valid Military uniforms anyone can buy them online.

Thanks for all the replys. The reson i need the flightsuit for is simple. I have just built a replica ghostbusters proton pack with lights and sound and to finish the costume i need a nomex tan flight suit in size 52.
I am a bit of a costume geek. I have a full star wars stormtrooper costume. a bit fat to use that now :lmao: and a star wars biker scout costume that i still use today. And i have a colonial marine costume from alien and the pulse rifle and the shoulder lanp.
I am a member of the 501st garrison tk3312 gary pusey. I do loads of charity work and all this stuff dose not come cheap.
here is a short video of the pack without the thrower,



So if you can get me a flightsuit cheap thats cool.

A flight suit, or any other US military uniform, is something to be earned, not bought cheaply. 'Cheap' and our uniform do not belong in the same sentence.

BTW, nomex does not come cheap anywhere. Good luck in your search, but I do not agree with the use of our uniform as a "costume", whether its for good or bad.

I am all for Authenticity, but I think that in this Case to ask for a military uniform is a bit Much. Tan Coveralls would work just as well. I dont think the Movie even used actual US uniforms. A google search will Give you loads of options but as far as a authentic US Uniform well... thats a tough one my friend.. Best of Luck in the costume search.

all the other guys that do the costume use the tan nomex flight suit. cant use the ones that where used in the first film as the suits where never branded. the reson we all try to use the same brand is so we all look the same.
i just thought you gays in the usaf could get stuff thats all.
