I have been trying to figure out a couple of uniforms for some bashes I am working on. The first is a German DAK uniform, long pants and long boots version. The outer jackets that officers would have worn appear in multiple colors. I have seen an officer figure wearing what appears to be an almost white jacket, another figure wearing a golden yellow jacket, and a third reference source shows the jacket to be almost olive green. Any idea what is the most common color? Are any of these colors incorrect?
The second uniform I am trying to bash is a British officers uniform. I have looked up a few different reference sources, but I can't find good color pictures of the uniforms. The figures John Coleman and Bernard Montgomery are sources for the parts I want to use, but I can't tell if the outer jacket and the shirt/tie should be the same color dark brown, or if the shirt and tie can be a lighter shade of tan. As I look at pictures of British military, it appears some of the shirts could be lighter in color, but I am looking at black and white pictures.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can provide me with more military education. I don't know what I would do without you guys.
