Please show us your Fake tiger stripes uniforms

Recommended Posts

Picked up a couple of replicas today. A JWD (i think) and a Golden Tiger. Material is a thinner cotton than the Tiger Stripe Products replicas, but not bad. The JWD shirt is a bit faded. No tags, only a stamped "M"

Both are from gogogo1944 HK

Any thoughts on those two Tiger bonnies? A friend ask me to post them on the forum for more comments. Personally I think the first one is a Japan or Hongkong made copy, and the second one with ripstop fabric might be a modified TSP piece? Any ideas? Thanks.

Ok, I have a hard time figuring the real tigers out and now I thought I would post this set as an example and to also verify the maker and timeframe and what the distinguishing factor is to identify them. I was told they look like MASH. The previous owner says he bought them from Gilles Bourdeau (author?) in 1998 and he thought they were real. They are a fairly heavy weight. They have a YKK zipper and are marked US-M. Any help appreciated.

Regards, Mitch

Hi Mitch,

 

i think Mash silver pattern came out in 2000 or 2001. Your set looks like Moore or Soldier Of Fortune repros. Its definitiv not Mash!

 

Hope this helps.

Moore is selling an "Apocalypse Now" Cpt. Willard uniform set. They are using the silver pattern.

But if I remember correctly, in the movie Willard wears the classic pattern, didn't he?

Just wanted to share some new advisor cut gold tiger stripes from Moore Military.

Also wanted to thank all that have donated their knowledge to this post.

This is my first real replica set of tiger stripes, rothco doesn't count from many moons ago.

Set is medium regular.

I am tall and skinny; 6'1½", about 170 pounds, 33 X 34 pants, 41 chest, 35½" sleeve, 7⅛ skull.

 

The uniform fits excellent, like its been tailored to fit.

Pants are medium sized about 34 plus. Plentiful length for blousing, rolling or hemmed.

The legs are notmbaggy like a typical uniform, but are more like a pair jeans.

All in all the pants fit great!

 

Shirt is a size medium.

Chest is about a 44 or 45ish, plenty of room for me.

Fits great across the shoulders.

Plenty of length for tucking! No problems with the shirt coming untucked.

Sleeves are perfect! When I put my arms straight out to the front it comes perfectly to the wrist, no Jethro Bodean for me! My biggest problem with most shirts and coats is short sleeve length.

Not so one bit with Moore's Advisor Gold Tiger Stripes!

 

Now for the picture show.

Enjoy!

Hi all, first post :)

Any ideas about these? While visiting Japan, I picked them up cheap at a recycle shop (thrift store, essentially) because I liked the way they fit.

I can find absolutely no tags or marking other than the stamp in the picture.

Seemingly nice twill fabric, button fly, can take more pics if needed.
