Now if you want to save some money and do it yourself too I have to warn you that it can be tedious. BUT don't be discouraged!! Just think of all the money you will save. It took me lots and lots of tries, lots of trial and error to finally get it right and I thought I would show you a few tips so you won't be as frustrated as I was!
Now when it comes to thread I was really paranoid about it matching perfectly until I looked at a few of his old uniforms. I realized that the alterations place just used thread that matched and blended well. One of his jackets even had two different colors [the ranks on the collar were in green and the name ones were in silver]. I chose the tan color and no one has said anything to him about it so I am going to keep using it. Thanks to amazon I got a life supply for $5 [in case he chooses the military as his career hehe].
So enough chit chat and lets get started. These ones go on the right side and the last name ones go on the left.
