Vietnam camo SOG or SF jacket


Recommended Posts

And this brings us full circle. Concerning any rare item, especially relating to SOG, provenance is what makes me sleep better. Fortunately, the SOG items in my collection were acquired directly from the SOG veteran or I directly watched the transaction happen through another person before I was able to purchase it.

 

Full circle exactly. A modified jungle jacket is a "modified jungle jacket". A modified jungle jacket with incontestable provenance linking the piece to a SOG vet is a "SOG modified jungle jacket".

 

This is why collectors are willing to pay exponentially more for verified pieces.

 

I've seen many posts on this forum of amazing unattributed pieces, and they are cool to own and look at, but they just are not on the same spectrum as documented items.

 

Mike Tucker,

 

I've had dreams about that SOG jacket you posted. Thank you for sharing!

"the Nam is very interesting !"

 

Agreed!

 

It's cool to see so many Vietnam posts on this forum over the last year.

 

At some point I would like to see this forum develop the current categories into historical time periods, with a category for Vietnam/Cold War. Not sure there are enough posts or members to support a breakout like this without feeling thinned out.

 

Also, if this were to happen, what would the majority prefer..... Item>Time Period or Time Period>Items. It would be interesting to do a vote and see. Does this functionality exist?

My understanding is that it was done quite a bit on SOG.

You'll need to look up the name in Sherman's Who's Who of MACV-SOG.

 

I checked...didnt found that name

one of 2 of my legit documented over the fence shirts, this one named to WYNN and features four pockets with the smaller pockets being moved to the sleeves, larger pockets on the breasts, shoulder loops extended beneath the sleeve pockets, and the best feature elastic around both the waist and cuffs. WYNNs name is in the collar, curtisy of Vintage productions :)

thanks Bob!!!!
