Depending how the sizes run, would these work?

Here's some new pics with the other trousers colourwise and new boots. They seem to be the same colour as the jacket cuffs. If the colour works I will add stirrups and take the trousers in a touch to make the lower legs more fitted if they work. Also swap the stripes.

I have also ordered the gloves above.

I'll try and sort out some new ones later on. But I've ordered some leather to make the straps for the wrist com greeblie. So progress is being made slowly.

The pants and the jacket cuffs should be a dark olive with brown undertones or a brown with olive undertones. Your jacket cuffs and pants are quite a bit lighter than the references.

The trousers photograph different colours in different lights e.g.

This is the photo I was sent by who made them.

There they look more olive.
Any suggestions on how to fix since they fit fine and are otherwise ok?

They are reading very grey. If it was me, I'd be messaging the person who made them to see if they have any fabric scraps they could send me for dye sampling......or where they got the fabric so I could buy some myself. You will also need to know the content if its poly.

I'd be looking at sampling with riit dye as its easier to tinker with the recipes. I'd start with some thing like this one below... then depending on how it comes out, either tinker with it.....or if its not right trying maybe Spanish olive or olive branch.

If you had a UK wip it would be easier for the base team to collectively help.

I've emailed who made them and started up a basic base wip. Will add more to it layer. The trousers do change colour in the light which is annoying. I'll deal with jacket cuffs once I get colour on trousers right.

I've heard back from who made them and sounds like they are a drill lyrca combination that she got in a shop in Israel. So unfortunately no samples are available.


But my gloves arrived today.

Ok, that mean normal rit dye should be fine......but need to allow for the grey base....its needs to be slightly grey anyway so I think we would be ok.

Dying is never an exact science though. so i would sample dye cotton drill with a stretch.

As original material isn't available for dye testing would this work?
