  1. Based upon my experience, you'll not get them looking like the real thing. They'll fade for sure, but likely to turn the color of the base fabric. In most cases, that's a tan brown or OD. The dye process for modern repros is not what it was in the 60s and they don't hold any colors very well.
  2. And after a year in the sun. Says a lot about dye techniques. Nothing like a good quality material and vat-dye. Are there ANY report manufacturers who produce a quality JWD of the correct fabric, print and dye?
  3. Here's an illustration of what eastasiasupply JDW print looks like after some real wear in the sun.
  4. Hi all, are there any current tiger-stripe manufacturers who produce good quality reproductions of the early 60s, brushed cotton type shirts black, green on almost a light grey base fabric? I've worked my way through every supplier I can think of but only find relatively thick and stiff cotton fabrics used producing gold or tadpole printed on tan or OD. Thanks very much.
  5. Sorry, don't have other pics. But thanks all. Seems there's no confidence in it and that's my view too.
  6. I'm unsure too... What would you do with something like this? Strip it?
  7. Hi, any comments or views on this jungle jacket?
  8. Sorry, I don't have it at hand. But from the photo I'd think so. There seems to be a pronounced depression in the middle of the skull?
  9. I'd be grateful for identification of this. I'm told it's an early (late 50s) Hells Angels MC patch?
