For replicas I think there are quite a few people who make reproductions for re-enactors - those replicas are generally very well made, although that's outside my field. There are some fantastic original belt buckles, blazer buttons and trimmings like that to be had. I had Austro-Hungarian cavalry uniform buttons on an old blazer once - stunning. If you can get hold of an original UK Sam Browne belt, the shoulder-strap can easily be made into a nice bridle-leather belt, for example.
