Value Added Service and Products

Our other factor in this aspect of Surplus; is the advent of made to Military Specification products that are taking the place of many surplus items disappearing from availability from the Military. This is a big help, especially when they are able to have brand new cost just a dollar over used...and sometimes abused surplus that needs a bit of work to make it worth selling to anyone.
Enter the Mil Spec items in all their available glory...and I mean available to the hilt and in some cases even better made then the original military products.
We have discovered that we can buy and sell used at about half the cost of new garments...but size and condition or grade of "As Is" clothing is hard to find decent stuff to offer to the public. And, sometimes the Military does not want it's stuff out there in public hands; add to this the cost that some of it comes up to compared to buying in a brand new garment and reselling it at ease, compared to fighting the Military for any surplus at all, and it makes the choice pretty clear as to if we are going to add made for the marketplace Mil Spec clothing, Boots, Caps, etc. to our inventory...We do and I am happy to be a "Value Added" Shop that can do more then just offer something for sale.
We also hem our clients trousers inseam length for free...and that goes for shirts too. We stand behind our product offering for the first 30 days at no additional charge, and we do barter & trade and offer up-sizing / up-grading as well.
I can honestly say buying Mil Spec made for the market place is a good idea as long as you make a discerning choice as to between good quality and better quality. You will save and get what you want at a decent price in return.
