      You can get the "basic" shirt, pants, tie and hat from an army surplus
      store. The basics really haven't changed all that much over the years.
      Also you might check thrift stores. There is one in our area that
      "specialises" in estates. They get a lot of furniture and "grandma's attic"
      stuff. They a lot of times will have a few uniform pieces. The only down
      side there is that most of them are for small to normal sized men. Not much
      for larger guys. Antique stores are a good place to look for insignia.
      If you don't find anything there, you might check with WWII renactors. They
      might be able to rent or let you borrow theirs.
      And to help you out, the "dress" uniform for most of the enlisted men in the
      army was tan pants, tan shirt and tan tie with the appropriate patches of
      for rank on the sleeve. Only the officers got into wearing the jackets.
      Witch were usualy dark green.
