I'm working on getting the correct components for my RFT costume. I was wondering if these boots and pants fit the requirements?

The grey Rothco BDU pants are the ones that most of our RFTs wear.

The boots look strange. The seams that connect the foot part to the shaft are wrong. There are a couple of types of boots that would work. You can either get West German or East German jackboots (Knobelbecher). You can find a lot of them if you go to the German eBay and search for "Knobelbecher Stiefel". Some Soviet and Finnish jackboots also look ok. Another boot type that can work are American engineer boots. You just have to cut off the lover strap and make sure there is no visible brand name. Sometimes the buckle on the top strap needs to be painted black.

Most of our people wear the Propper BDU pants. No mods needed; they're good to go out of the box. I'm sure the Rothco are the same, but it's best to find out what the local preference is so your grays all match.

I have both Propper and Rothco and they are both acceptable. The only difference is the shade of grey each of them portray.

The boots should definitely be German jackboots too.

Do others in your base have this costume? I would find out what brand of pants they use and get those so that you won't look like the odd man out.
