Been looking at these guys for awhile. I'm a SASS member, but these guys are less about shooting fast and enjoy the historical aspect way more. They also support blank fire reenactments!

I need to read up on them, keep seeing the NCOWS on peoples signatures but never realized what it was.

They are straight up reenactors.

That would be cool but very expensive, LOL!

Your super close.

Saddle trousers, a shirt, suspenders? Felt hat? Boots?

Most stuff you can get off ebay cheap. Civil war gear is every wear too!

You have guns and leather covered!

I have a couple collarless shirts, a couple vests, some braided leather suspenders, 2 straw hats and 2 felt hats (both felts need a little stretching) and have been using a style of khaki trousers from Costco that look pretty good if you cover the pockets. Managed to get a shearling knock-off recently and picked up a few different bandanas but still need to do more work on it all. I will get some pictures of me in kit shortly, that'll help a bit. One thing I need to try and do is come up with boots taller than roper height but my budget isn't going to allow that for a bit. I am working on the sissy pads for my .45-70 and my daughter's .410, shotgun shell slides for both of us and some shell cards for the reloading table for both of us, and then a new wallet for me, LOL!

You can find Olathe buckaroo boots for cheap on eBay sometimes. They have a tall top version. And the vamp is saddled for a spur strap and the heel has a spur ledge.
