That's a nice kit setup so far, the way you've pinned the cloak and the bed roll are really cool :P For tunic and trousers, if you wan't cheep temporary solution that more looks the part, I would recommend looking out in thrift stores for a plain linen shirt and pants, linen is easy to dye so there'...
