Hi Guys,

I want to buy a "Aghanka" Type uniform, however, I'm confused over the sizing.

I'm around a 40inch chest, 30inch inside leg measurements, what size should I purchase??

Also, are there different styles of Afghanka?? I like the sand coloured type.

Sorry so many different questions, I'm completely new to this

What is your height and we can better determine the -(?) part.

The uniform you're referring to is the M88 model uniform, Afghanka is kind of a label for the Khaki/sand colored uniforms used in Afghanistan.

The M88 cut was also produced in the rare TTsKO pattern, the popular VSR pattern, a sage green variation used in East Germany by the Soviets, and other rare variations like the black M88 and a few woodland variations from different parts of the Soviet Union.

You should be able to find the Afghanka you're looking for from this retail site, but I'm afraid the more exotic kinds are sold more so by private collectors or gear hunters. The rare occasion is a soldier who once wore the uniform.

5'10 would be 50-4.

Check with Vlad before purchasing the item to make sure he has your size in stock. If not send me a PM and I'll tell you where to go from there.
