How were Tigersuits made in country? I found this staff film report, that shows the construction of uniforms starting at the 9:20 mark. While this footage covers olive green uniforms being made, in the end of the segment you can see they also make tigerstripe uniforms, presumably via the same manner.

Very interesting! Can anyone identify the pattern of tiger uniform shown? I wonder if the cloth was produced in Japan?

Kammo-man is having trouble loading photos right now so he asked me to include this.

 

He shot this photo at The Rose Bowl this last Sunday morning.

 

I am sure this will drive a lot of collectors nuts but I think it is totally cool that this guy had no clue he was wearing one of the rarest tiger stripe flight suits, and honestly didn't care. He thought it was a great piece of fashionflague and he was enjoying wearing it.

Tonight while watching "Any Which Way You Can" I noticed the Tiger hat on the background guy in the bar scene with Clyde.

If this is already posted within one of the two threads or somewhere else on the forum, I apologize.  I don't think I have seen it already posted.
