Sources for Uniform Items  

Vanguard ( http://www.vanguardmil.com/ )

New items only. All parts to all CGAUX uniforms, except flight jackets and service coats.
Back-ordered items can take a long time.
Be sure you know exactly what you want

AAFES, 800-527-2345, http://www.aafes.com

New USAF items only (no CGAUX insignia). The Blue shirts and shiny black shoes are applicable to CGAUX uniform, but I do not think the  other items (pants, belts, hats, or service coats) would be applicable.

This surplus store is run by a CAP member, and he stocks just about everything that a new CAP member would need except insignia.  For instance: Blue shirts, blue pants, belts, flight caps, service caps, ties, jungle boots, overcoats, field jackets, flight suits, flight jackets, field gear, and outdoor equipment .

Used flight suits, reasonably priced. If he doesn't have your size he'll keep an eye out for one.  Let him know you're in CAP.

Numerous other vendors sell new and used flight suits and flight jackets at airshows such as Oshkosh AirVenture and Sun-n-Fun.  If you or a friend has a program from either airshow, check in there for flight suit dealers, new and used.
