Hi gimp,

yes that's an original silver set. Trousers have a few replaced buttons, but no problem.

You are building up a nice little collection, keep up the good work!

Originals are originals and Mash CO are just a perfect copy but no more than that, when it comes to fading Mash are nowhere close to originals but nevertheless they are the closest thing to the originals and they fetch a price not far from the real ones !!!

TS rookie here. I took a time looking through all 99 pages TWICE and learned a lot about Tiger Stripes. I decided to pick one for a start. I just got it off Bay State Militaria.

This is late war light weight CIDG splotch pattern. (Correct me if I'm wrong).

When it arrived, I was surprised at its size. I shouldn't have underestimated Asian size, it's so small. I never realized that Vietnamese people were that small. I always see pictures of Advisors stand tallest of all their ARVN men, I thought that they were tall. :lol:

Thanks in advance!

Tigers in this pattern always come small .
I have had one before that would fit a Action man !!

Only joking but you get the picture .

This shirts fabric is quite crude and has a small amount of other material in its blend
Maybee nylon mix ?

The pattern is also a crude attempt or copy of the Tiger pattern , but it has almost reached its final forms .

This is a Yard pattern mostly seen being worn by our little mountain friends .

Myself and Paul Marildi have looked through countless Tigersuit wartime photos in search of trousers being worn in this pattern and we think we got one .
It is open for debate of pants exist but I have Never seen a pair .
But you know how things go ......
A pair might show up someday .
That would be a good Tiger day .

Good shirt , crude pattern.

Thanks Owen for your input!

Buried deep in this thread, Mr-x (I think) shared picture of this same pattern being worn by one of "little guys".

It is in post #426 by Mr-x.

Nice shirt but as Owen said, those Yards were so small , like GI Joe's but they fought with very big heart so this shirt of yours , small as it is is actually very big :thumbsup:
