  1. Exquisite War Shirt 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jan 7th 2017

    The detail in this shirt is amazing. Quality is exceptional. I have been wanting one for years but could not justify the price. Once Mission Del Rey slashed the prices by 1000.00, I took the chance and so glad that I did. Photos do not do it justice. Detail is amazing. Great customer service if you have an issue.
