At the Front, LLC
Service Provider in Columbia, Kentucky
First and foremost, for those who have just happened upon our website and may be horrified on some level or another with the "natzee" items on the site, don't have a seizure. For once, it's not what it appears to be. We aren't associated with any sort of dimestore natzee/ white power/ trailer park fascism bullshit. Although I'm sure a few of those people have purchased some of our products- that's not what we're about. The nature of our business is historical and for entertainment- this is not political.
We supply most of the costume and production companies around the world with WWII uniforms and gear, as well as numerous museums and theater companies. Additionally, many vintage garment enthusiasts also use our products. Perhaps our primary market is reenactors. Since the mid-'70s, several thousand quirky individuals have been dressing up in WWII uniforms and playing war. (It's normally called reenacting, living history, saving history, or honoring veterans but, in layman's terms, it's a bunch of guys playing war. My wife calls it "Trekkies with guns".) Most participants portray American or German soldiers, but all combatant nations have been represented at one time or another. As for the naughty symbols scattered about, the outfits in this hobby are all about historical authenticity- and every German soldier had several offensive bits of insignia on his uniform. Remember, you can't have a battle with just the good guys- somebody has to dress up as Gen. Custer and his cutthroats so the native Americans have someone to fight. We supply the Indians as well as the cavalry. Perhaps consider it "Call of Duty" come to life.
That said, we only carry items worn by the German military forces- we do NOT have Natzee Party uniforms, armbands, political literature, KZ camp items, etc..
