    What are your concerns? Pattern, construction, materials, price?

    Basically just wondering if they're considered a quality item or not. Are they based on authentic patterns , proper materials etc. or Am I going to have a great big Farbilicious item in my head?

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    From what I have seen,his kepis are all 100% correct.The kepi pattern is fitting more for the Trans-Mississippi Theater,so that may depend on getting one.But they seem to be fine caps.

    Cody is a craftsman of the old school and is fairly well known in the progressive circles. He is a former AC approved vendor and is talented at just about whatever he puts his hands to, hats and caps included. He is most noted perhaps for his quilted hats based on the quilited cotton hat in the CS edition of "Echoes of Glory", but his kepis are also correctly made from quality materials and patterns.
