I don't know why I bother sometimes responding if people just ganna make their own opinions on facts... You were right to pass on this if you are looking for a US Soldiers actual top. I repeat THIS IS NOT A SOLDIERS JACKET never was. It was made by a civillian, for airsoft? a personal token? a personal militia? Hell I dunno but it wasn't a Soldier down on his luck... who needed a Sharpie, or wasn't near a proper sew shop CONUS or even OCONUS. Even if a sew shop screwed up the coat, these things are 75$ a pop... He or she would have it redone... All US enlisted Soldiers are issued government purchased by contract uniforms. All Officers purchase the same stuff... The uniform you were looking at was a civilian made by tru-spec NOT for a military contract, but that at the moment can be worn until 1 OCT 2019 IAW Regulations and AR 670-1 and associated DA Pams (Department of the Army Pamphlets) (that type of shirt is and was only worn by Officers or Soldiers who couldn't purchase OCP yet, and had not deployed yet to be issued FRACU MCAMS, who had been issued ACU UCP, and wanted to feel high speed)The current military isn't 5 million deployed. its around 1 million total Guard and Reserve + Active Duty, Soldiers overseas don't get into theatre with the wrong uniforms, we are really talking flukes beyond that which this is not. The uniform shown could have been purchased clean with nothing in another life/not this one.An actual US Soldier would have put the proper sown on tapes, and a rank. Or not, because that's expensive, so new Joes just through basic 1. wouldn't have bought this, 2 Officers would have done it properly or if anyone even tried to show up wearing that they would get their asses handed to them by anyone and everyone and laughed at by everyone in their unit, especially by their best friends...
Also Multicam in FRACU material and CUT is the ONLY "multicam" purchased and issued by the US Army. Civillian ACU CUT 50/50 Ripstop nylon or cotton blends can be worn stateside, if worn IAW with the regulations previously stated until 1 OCT 2019.
The Army OCP uniform is a different cut, and pattern. There are no civillian companies with the same pattern. Yes if you are around the stuff for any period of time it sticks out quite differently.
Here are just 3 of mine from right out of the closet. 1. ACU (Army combat uniform) with UCP (universal camouflage pattern) 2. FRACU ACU in multicam (Flame Resistant Army combatuniform, multicam pattern) as made for deployments for Soldiers. Yes the Navy and Air Force wear OCP overseas, the coat in question says U.S. Army so I'm not going into that) and 3. The Army ACU OCP (Army Combat Uniform, Operational Camouflage Pattern).
