Jim, thanks for posting the mismatched gear here. It is a great selection. It should give the Khaki Nazis nightmares when ever they dare to look at this thread.

Much obliged, Craig :thumbsup: I remember reading this thread some time ago, and really getting a kick out of it...thanks for the reminder! Like I said, I have a bunch more of this stuff- just gotta get the pics prepared and up on the computer. Until then, keep making a stand against the Khakishirts :lol:

Hi fellow members who joined in on the post, I just spotted that this thread I started back in Jan 2007 had come back to the top again. ;)

So I just wanted to say thanks for showing all your two or even three tone kit, nice to see it all. :thumbsup:

Cheers ( Lewis )

Ken:
Much obliged, friend :thumbsup: That was the first "transitional" piece I ever saw- picked it up in a giant surplus store in Galveston, Tx., way back before I became informed as to why such differing colors were used on a single item. It is actually the craziest "mismatch" of the whole pile; should take a few close-up shots of it.

I'm really surprised there haven't been more photo contributions to this thread...

I know what store you are talking about... it may have been wiped out by Ike in 08.

Strand Surplus Senter, owned and operated by my old friend Meyer Reiswerg, a.k.a. Col. Bubbie.

Wow- I wonder how he fared from that...he had 3 warehouses of stuff... :think:

UPDATE: I just did a quick search, and learned that Meyer passed away last May :crying: The store is still going, though.

Great thread! I always pick up the mismatched colors of webbing when I run across them. They are just so different from the average color of webbing and has an almost natural camo look.
