    • Sunglasses restocked today!

      We have restocked G.I. sunglasses and tortoise shell German round sunglasses

      Even after many years, the G.I. sunglasses remain my default everyday sunglasses. They just have a great look. I keep a pair in the car and in my travel bag to ensure I always have them wherever I go. I do also keep a pair of my German sunglasses in my box of German equipment for events. 

      We will begin working on the next sunglasses run soon, I will likely be revisiting the Luftwaffe type sunglasses and taking the next batch one step further to add the side shades. This will add expense and might feel a little awkward to wear so I will make some subtle alterations, but I feel like it will be nice to have at least a limited run of these sunglasses for the real die-hard collectors and reenactors. The original pairs typically cost $300+ so I know it is an item missing from a lot of collections. I only was able to obtain my sample by pure chance.

      I am also considering making one of the other styles of US G.I. issued sunglasses but it is hard to pick out a style that doesn't look too stupid. The US had many variations and virtually all of them were terrible except for the pair I chose listed above. I do think however that some might be just strange enough that people will want them for the oddity of it. A little variety would also do the hobby some good.

    • No More Shipping to France

      We are no longer shipping to France. Unfortunately, France (and Germany where we already stopped shipping to because of repeated customs problems) passed a new "environmental" law that requires any seller who sends ANY package at all to France to sign up for their system, pay fees and do needless paperwork. I don't have enough sales volume to justify this added headache, so regretfully, I can no longer ship to France. 

      If you are curious about the EPR law, this website explains what it means for sellers. The main takeaway is that there is no threshold, so this will disproportionality hurt small businesses, like me.


      In other shipping news, I can now ship to Australia again as USPS seems to have lifted its covid regulations.


      I would also like to remind international buyers that we must declare full value on all customs forms and customs fees / VAT are the responsibility of the buyer.
