Quartermaster's Reference

Knight Templar Uniform and Equipment Resources


Sir Knights,

What follows is a list of suppliers of Knight Templar gear. This is taken from the internet and there are other suppliers but these, with the exception of www.themaac.com, have all been used by this Recorder and Quartermaster for his Commandery’s needs. There is a strategy to be used when ordering materials. Remember that you will have to pay shipping and handling so it will sometimes be more cost effective to purchase some goods at a slightly higher price to save on the shipping charges. I include their mailing addresses and phone numbers at the end of this reference. Uniform regulations can be found in the Tactic Manual, appendix “B”, page 107-113, and include all information for correct dress for a Sir Knight in this jurisdiction.
B = Best Price
Look Sharp!
Courteously,
SK Donald J. Berry, Em. Grand Senior Warden
Recorder and Quartermaster of Coeur de Lion Commandery No.23, NYC


There are many chapeau providers and they all have their merits. I include the lynchkelly.com address as a low cost chapeau. You will need to modify it by buying a rosette and slashings and gold front braid if appropriate, it also lacks the black feathers beneath the white plume. You may find it more cost affective to purchase one of the other ready-to-wear models from the other suppliers.

You can purchase used KT swords from eBay but you cannot be sure of the quality or preservation of the piece. Ask around your Commandery to see if there are any swords available from other Sir Knights or other Commanderies. The $50 sword from www.themaac.com is not a regulation Knight Templar Sword but it will do for a new Knight or for a Commandery that is rebuilding. Remember, a new sword is an expense that should be considered last in your outfitting. You can always sell you older sword to another Sir Knight when you wish to purchase a new one.

I highly recommend Lighthouse Uniform Company for uniforms that are extremely durable and well tailored. Have your measuring tape out when you call to insure that you get the correct fit. They will put in the sword slit for free and make sure that you are happy with your purchase. As of the 2008 New York Grand Conclave, you may also wear a black, four button, double breasted, sport coat or suit jacket as a uniform. But you must remove the sleeve buttons and replace the four front buttons with black KT buttons. You can have your dry cleaner add the sword slit even with the top of the left side pocket. You will need black trousers to match your coat and black shoes –not wing tips. You may find it more cost effective to purchase a uniform depending on your location and means.
