Looks like the ones I have in my collection. Patches don't make much sense.

Yes the pattern is typically late war, also the little arm 's pocket with 2 black boutons  had been only saw on the LHD and on the Advisors Tape Dense but thoses ones was with green sewing line.

No this is more around the year 1968 to 69 but " Late War, heavy weight dense pattern " is the denomination from the Holy book "Tiger Paterns a guide to the Vietnam war 's tigerstripe combat fatigue patterns and uniforms". when this guy said "late war" for the TS that 's more around the year 69.

FYI the old school, long time experienced collectors have always had their own names for the various patterns. That book and the dude who wrote it rubbed people the wrong way. Without getting into back and forths, that is just how it is.

Look when an author alienated his captive audience it’s a sour note that cancels out much of his work.

So, don't take it bad I just try to understand, did every things is wrong in that book?  or not complete ? or just outdated ?

  This was a recent purchase and I never would have touched this one if it hadn't have come from a friend of mine and if it hadn't have came from the Bragg area. 

 

This is a late 80s or early 90s era Tiger Stripes Products jacket with sewn on tapes and SSI.    Jacket is sun faded from use.

 

  From my research, I have tentatively identified the soldier it belonged to and he was assigned to 7th SFG throughout Central and South America.  I have reached out to him, but have not heard back from him yet.

  Insignia appears to have been sewn to jacket for quite some time.

  Thanks for your kind words, my friend.  I hope the vet responds as well, but I'm not going to hold my breath.
