I'm currently working on a new modern uniform inspired by the uniforms worn by the most Fire Departments when at the station, etc.

Everything is being shipped at the moment, but here is the layout I pictured:

Shirt (LAPD Navy Blue)

I'm having Vinyl Arm Patches made by The Mutiny Shop (http://www.mutinyshop.com) as this will look a bit more updated than sewn patches. They are velcro backed as well to make them interchangable.

The nametags will be magnetic backed which will also make them interchangable (http://namebadgesinternational.com.au/N ... stige/c27/)

I'm looking to screenprint or have sewn GBNY on the back similar to my undershirt.

Pants (Dark Navy)

I should have everything within the next few weeks so i'll post updates when they arrive.

It has that "around the fire house" kinda feel. Looks a lot like what we used to wear in the Forest Service. I am really looking forward to seeing this finished!

Nice! I'm a fan of some of the experimenting people have been doing with two-piece uniforms.
I have to ask, though, what's the deal with the magnetic nametags? Why not velcro? I would think those would hang on better.

Are you thinking about doing short sleeves too? That would look ( and feel) cooler.

Thanks for the feedback! TBH, I bought the magnetic nametags in haste as they were cheap, and I wanted to see how they'd turn out, lol.

If the quality of the arm patches are awesome, then i'll likely order some vinyl nametags as well, just in a slightly smaller size than the ones on the jumpsuits (maybe 75% size).

On that note, the nametags arrived this morning, and they don't look that bad. The magnets are really strong too:

Those magnet tags look cool, but I think the sewn name patches have a more organic look.

Here's my shirt from a while ago: http://www.gbfans.com/fans/props/uniforms/3458/2/

Very awesome! I love the idea of a two piece uniform. I have a Rothco jump suit and it's a bit too small for my....um....portly figure. I LOVE the style of the t-shirt. The mind juices are flowing! Can't wait to see an update with photos of you wearing everything.

EDIT: Boots have now been purchased as well.

Who makes those boots?
Oliver Footwear - Style 66-395 230MM (9") LACE UP STRUCTURAL FIREFIGHTER BOOT

They retail for about $350, but I found a seller on eBay that has Factory Seconds for $90 plus shipping, so we'll see how they look when they arrive I guess...

Thanks Man!

My boots just arrived too, so i'll take some pictures when I get home.

The vinyl patches are now on there way from the manufacturer, and I just have to wait for the Pants and Short Sleeve Shirt to ship as the shirt is on backorder.

Parcel Tracking shows that the patches have arrived in Australia, so I should have them by Friday hopefully.

Also the short sleeve shirt is back in stock, so shirt and pants should both ship shortly. Finally all coming together :)
