    Default WTB 3rd Alabama Gilmore

    Before I got ahead and order up cloth to start one anew does anyone have a reproduction based off the 3rd Alabama Gilmore Jacket that they would be willing to part with? Thanks

    I have a 3rd Alabama shell jacket with AVC buttons. I confess that I am not sure just what the Gilmore jacket is, but I can advise you how alter a comutation for a modest cost. I have pix of the jacket. Send me a private message and I will send you pix. I was formerly company commander of the Mobile Cadets.

    Mr Kirk did not have one for sale. Ask around! Size 42/44, id even consider larger and just take it in. Maybe even smaller
