I was making Russian tunics for rental kits and found them to be relatively easy to make.  For this reason I would be willing to make extras of these and sell them at events if there was an interest.  While I did try my best to replicate my reproduction m35 and original m43 Russian tunics, these tunics are not an exact copy and the fabric is a denim pants like material. For this reason I would sell them for $35.  These would be good for someone on a budget.  Color-wise I am at the mercy of my local fabric store but they will range from the lend lease olive drab, to khaki, to brown.  One size fits all at XL, which gives it the nice baggy Russian tunic look.  (I am a small to medium and it looks fine on me.)  I will do pockets or no pockets, but can't do working hidden pockets as that is past my skill level.  I could do fake hidden pockets with just the flaps though.

Example:  (Mind the incorrect buttons, I ran out of my extras for now)

Nice, they look better than the Goodwill conversions I was doing. Mine were a solid level 3 on our MOA uniform guide lines for the Russians. Put the correct buttons on and your tunics are a solid level 2. I have 40 +/- gold/brass looking Russian military buttons that can be painted for a subdued look. At one time Todd Meyer had a pattern for the piloka.

Thanks!  I will probably buy some of those buttons off you then.  I will be selling my tunics without insignia, but here are some examples of what they can look like:

m35 early war (1941-1943)


m35 transitional  (1943-1944)


m43 (1943-1945)

A reminder! We have sources for Soviet tunics by MOA members. Goodwill conversions by Boris for $10-15.00 and Matt's above pictured tunics. Contact us soon if you need anything Soviet for Ostwind.
