Ifound this site and wanted to post a link for it. I rushed for time, so I need to check it out more later, but the prices seem very reasonable, the leather jacket looks very cool.

That website looks awesome.  I have also used this site before
http://www.mooncostumes.com/custom.html (http://www.mooncostumes.com/custom.html)

They do custom commission work that isnt too expensive.  I got some anime costumes from there, I am thinking about asking them for a quote on a Commissar or a guardsman

I looked at them before, how is the quality of the stuff they did for you?

I have wondered because they are so inexpensive if they cut corners...

I have been looking around to find a good place to oder costume stuff from because I can't sew for crap and my GF isn't much better.

I posted that other site as I was headed out the door ( was posting from my phone) so I have not taken a very close look at them, but the quality look good and those where pictures of the uniforms they are making.

Well I ordered this in Black at 5xl:

For my custom mando and I love it.  The fact that they have 3 different qualities too choose from is what first caught my eye.  The one I chose is a simple cotton and I could wear it as a coat and not worry about getting cold.  The next level was Faux Leather and the third was 100% leather.  I also loved the fact that they did not charge me extra for being a larger person (6'2" 300 pnds) and the shipping price was very nice (the whole deal was under $100).  here is a pic of me wearing it with my mando:

Its a thick cotton but it isnt heavy at all and it breathes very well.  I wore it for about 4 hours in that costume and I was very comfortable.

Honestly, a lot of these places are really cheap because they are in China where the labor cost is next to nothing (compared to the US).  I used QQCosplay for my FMA outfit.  Here's a link to them, http://www.qqcosplay.com/ (http://www.qqcosplay.com/) .
