In the idea of doing the best (or going in that direction) look for 4th Texas possible:  - What would be the perfect uniform?  Of course variety helps, but all of us in Derbies would look. . .  Anyway, Don Hutto got me started last night (now later):  I put this to y'all for any input to add to the minimum equipment guidelines.  I think you'll get the gist with the list.   Popular with 4th Texas:Red Shirts were very popular <full button down and pockets w...
