    Just heard about this company. IT LOOKS like they have good products at a good price. I’m quick to recommend companies I’ve done business with that have given good service. And you get what you pay for. I like Townsends and Crazy Crow, I don’t compare the two.
    Any one have experience with this company?

    I just stumbled accross this company two days ago, never heard of it before. Was lookin for FnI waistcoat, and came across them. The waistcoats are $72, which is the cheapest that I've seen them on the Internet atleast. Townsends waistcoats are $170, way more expensive. But can't say for quality for either of them, cause I've never had them. Samson Historical's products reviews were mostly all good from what I see. Before Samson, smoke and fire had some of the best prices I've seen, like example their waistcoats are $110, not a bad price. I do soon want to get one of Samsons waistcoats, then I will know somewhat about customer service, product quality, shipping etc..... when I have the weskit, I'll tell your it's quality.
    One question though, what state are they in?

    I found them on Etsy about a month or so ago. Haven't ordered anything, yet. Will probably order a pair of their brown cotton breeches when/if funds allow.

    I have purchased from them several times and their customer service is excellent. I have not had any issues with their products to date. One of my most recent purchases was a long F&I period waistcoat. It is green wool broadcloth with working pockets. Sizes are straight on. CW FIW1.jpg
    Another vendor for the budget minded is Fort Laramie Frontier Trading Post. They can be found on ebay as flftp.
    Samson's are good people. For accessories also check out Smiling Fox Forge.

    Thank you for this very helpful, and encouraging, reply. I guess I know where my next pair of breeches will come from.

    Their prices look pretty good. For example their garters are listed at $9 and I couldn't find a pair at Fort Fred in April for under $12. $95 for wool breeches is pretty standard. Their cooking equipment looks pretty well priced too, and I hope they have some good suppliers as several of the items that I'd be interested in throughout their online offerings are currently "sold out". :(

    hubby and I have made several orders with Samson and we have loved everything we purchased. One issue we had was with shoes, hubby picked the wrong size, and they did an exchange no questions asked (no buckles poked thru). They have a great magazine they are publishing also, very informative, great pics, we really like it. I would do business with Samson any time!
