Wow!

I always thought this was a Phillipine pattern variation.

Beautiful set, nice one 'Trooper Thornton' and thanks for showing!

This pattern came from one tailor shop in Nha Trang and it was based on the Malaysian brush stroke pattern.

 

Super rare, and have only ever seen one other garment in this pattern, that we gave Owen a photo of to use in his book.
