Strike said:I'm due for a new set (I think the material keeps shrinking!) and was holding back for this message. Might be able to get a set done by the time I go back to work. Wonder what the cost will be though now that we have to pay for the gold stripes. At least I can save the gold braid from the rank of my current jacket.

Suspect the MWO and below pattern will be about..what $300? less without the gold stripe and no requirement for a fancy Capt Stubbing waistcoat?
Stonegeneral said:Well, using Andrei Master Tailor's pricing as an example, NCMs (save for CWO) would be looking at about a $100 increase in cost due to the material used (so approx $875-900). Officers would be looking at about $1270 minimum for 2Lts.
Strike said:Bought my mess kit including a white jacket for a little over $500, and that was with gold braid for the rank. The $875-900 price seems a bit steep for the NCM mess kit.
