Uniforms

Should probably be organized like a spreadsheet....

Item Name: Usually the QM designation or the 'common designation' of an item.
Price Range: What you can expect to pay, from low end find to a high end, minty, original or reproduction. This is a 'general estimate' of a reasonable price, pre-shipping, expect to see variance within and outside this range. Higher price does not always mean higher quality or satisfaction.
Buy It Anyway: If you find this item for this price, buy it anyway and flip it!
Vendors: eBay usually listed first since it CAN be the cheapest (not always), then vendors in increasing price
10th Specific: A mere yes or no will answer whether this item was issue solely to the 10th Mountain Division (okay, and the FSSF). Either way, photos of 10th Mountain soldiers may be linked here as 'proof of use'. 
Tip: Not always a helpful one, but is usually something worth knowing
Unit closet: States if we have this item in the closet for temporary loan, quantity is also listed.
