How accurate to the time periods the films were set in were all the costumes used in Leone's spaghetti westerns (in general) and where did he get them all from?

I believe that a part of the Eastwood costum was from his costum on Rawhide; the rest was to Leone (for Eastwood). Others costumes were rent or lend ( ???) by museum etc...

  I remember reading that Clint Eastwood improvised his costume for FOD.  He went to a hardware store and bought a pair of jeans and a the denim shirt.  From there on, all he needed was the boots, the poncho, and the hat.  I can't remember where I read that, so if anyone can reinterpret that, knock yourself out.

  The costuming in the spaghettis is one of the reasons I love the movies.  They all have a very gritty, realistic feel that a lot of American westerns just don't have.  It seems that with a lot of American westerns all of the costumes are just back from the dry cleaner.

The shirt you once could get from JC Penny was a house brand called Big Mac I believe it was a regualr cotton button down work shirt, small blue & white pin stripes (like the kind you see on a railroad engineers hat only lighter blue.

The boots are from Rawhide. I saw a small clip of an Eastwood interview as was the Pistol belt( which I might add is the most awesomest pistol belt ever)

The Poncho was from a costume store in Hollywood and the shirt is as CJ says. The hat I don't know.

That very interesting CJ about the Western Costume Co.

They probably say in the credits I've noticed before that there is a mention, but also in one of the SW books there is a piece dealing with Leone and an actor at Western Costume, trying on hundreds of hats to finally get the right one.

Benito Steffenalli was not only an actor/stuntman, but he was also the armorer.

  Is there anything Benito Stefanelli couldn't do?  Evil henchman, official rifle tosser, armorer.  This guy was a renassaince man.
