Sci-fi military cosplay

Okay I have a few questions and need some help.

I am a fan of the Honor Harrington series (Horatio Hornblower... IN SPACE!) and want to cosplay a member of one of the enemy militaries.

Thing is about these uniforms is that they are very 'modern' in their dress. They aren't Star Trek/Wars like, they look like actual military uniforms > Like this

Now the enemy uniform, to everyone that I have talked to best knowledge we can get from the books, bears a heavy resemblance to the United States Navy white dress uniform.

So here come the questions:

How can I make it or possibly get it? (I can't make stuff to save my life)

I know how to play the character perfectly. Just the costume causing the problem.

And I know this cosplay MIGHT cause problems outside of a convention since it will look like I might be trying to valor steal (which is why this cosplay would never leave a convention unless in dire circumstance.)

They originally had Cosplaysky make them, but they require a bit of extra work to make them right. They are looking for a US company, IIRC

I have one, and have made some modifications.
