I saw a strange looking USMC woodland pattern camouflage BDU shirt today at the flea market.  It has a different cut along the collar and instead of buttons utilize vertically sewn rectangular Velcro tabs for closure.  The labels inside are all worn out and hard to read.  Is this some sort of paintball BDU copy?

It's legit, but it's been modified. I can see a button hole in your picture, and the 4 dots pattern from where a button was stitched. The velcro is attached with black thread which is different than all of the rest because it was done after it was manufactured.

The collar is different because this is an early BDU with a 1981 contract. This style of collar is nicknamed "elvis collar" by collectors.
