    My clothing sales store finally has the tops. I bought one tonight. We have a few different sizes of hats but none that fit me perfect.

    Does anyone have pants at their clothing sales? I need 32R. I could also use a 7 1/4 or 7 3/8 hat.

    Has anyone had any luck with online retailers? Which ones?

    Are they still coming in mis-matched shades?

    call Bolling AFB. They will ship them FEDEX to you. I just ordered BDU's this way. My buddy bought the ABU's from there. Worth a try.

    Why is everyone rushing to get the ABU's? There were 5 guys in front of the clothing sales on base yesterday at least 2 hours before it opened.

    i start ALS on January 3rd. My black boots look like garbage. I have brand new desert boots. I could

    A) Spend over $100 to buy new black boots and still have to maintain my old BDUs or
    B) Spend under $100 and get ABUs which i will not have to service and will be brand new for ALS.

    I'm choosing B.

    Thanks for the tip on bolling. I will call tomorrow.

    go to www.propper.com and check for a local distributor. I got 2 sets, could have gotten 4, but with Christmas coming. I think I paid $217 for 2 full sets, 6 pair shirts/socks, belt, and hat. Just got them back from alterations. Look nice. Cant wait to wear them Jan 1. E-5 :bigthumb:

    This place in Selma, AL sells Seconds... I got a whole set for $40... I think the only thing wrong was on my top, the cuff of the sleeve had a quarter-inch rough edge, and the pants have nothing wrong with them... Now I'm just waiting for tax money to get me some boots and everything else.

    I thought if you didn't buy them from the military clothing sales then there is a chance you'll get a fake. Is this true?

    They are made by American Apparrel (sp?). Anyways. They are a supplier for the AF. So idk. But they don't look any different.

    Are you talking about the ABU's? They are made by Propper. And the boots are sage green. Im just wearing my desert boots til I get my green ones issued.

    That is correct. The official place to buy them is from MCSS.

    That may be true, but I have already seen people at the clothing sales store matching up their tops and bottoms because the color shades are off. I think I'll wait and pick mine up at the clothing sales store when they become more available.

    I found a local place that sold them, went down there and bought 2 sets. The color was barely off, but I was able to pick the ones I wanted. Our BX is a joke, they dont even have full sets, so everyone is going downtown to this distributor.
