They won't be doing the uniforms again. I have been on the owner, who is also my business partner, and he has said flat out, he will not do anymore, no matter what.

Any particular reason?

Yes, there is. When MASH does a particular item, they usualy do it one time only and never again. This is why their repros command the prices they do. The gold tiger stripes were ran once and the silver patterns were run twice. All togther they made 600 sets and 450 extra pants. He has other projects in the works, and he is a perfectionists, and wants to devote all his time and energy to his next projects.

Hi B.

 

The tiger set in post #99 is definitely a JWD pattern repro but with a nice golden colour.

Anyway even if the set has not the right print it looks something special for me!

Its not bad at all for a repro in my opinion!, take a look at the buttons there are quite close to the real gold garment buttons.

 

The shirt in post #101 is a killer one and 100% real!, I love this kind of goldis with such awesome colours :love:

Its actually listed on e-bay # 260465736380

Lets see for how much money it goes away when the auction is closed ?

 

Cheers

 

Mike

Yes the set looks good but the price was a little bit high in my opinion?

I ordered a set of these http://cgi.ebay.com/Repro-VN-Late-War-Spar...id=p3286.c0.m14 and received it today I have to say it looks very good as well with a fine detail to the original even the light weight fabric is very close and optimal for the summer!

It’s a good choice too for bbq’s, beer & chicks!! :thumbsup:

 

I wish you good luck with the gold shirt and hopefully the price will not rising over the top!, its quite high already isn’t it !?

I could get one of these nice extra coloured gold shirts with my last order and I love it and you would love it too :love:

It's good to know my 2 mint sets of large golds are worth WAAAAAY more than I paid for them. Personally, I think it's a stupid price but it's just a case of a couple of guys getting to a pissing contest, I'll bet within 2 weeks of the auction closing this shirt will be relisted because the winning bidder didn't pay.

Hi Spike

 

thats exactly what I mean!!!, thats definitely crazy and also you could be right most probable we will see the shirt in 2 weeks again on e-bay except somebody don't know what he could do with all his money!

Anyway the good thing is its very grateful to see what kind of reserve funds we got and all the others menbers here in her collections!

Hopefully we can get just a close price to this if one time the WORST day is coming where we have to sell some of our pieces!! :lol:

 

Cheers

I need a little help here from you guys, just recieved a late war light weight tigerstripe shirt but the pattern seems a bit different ( do not get confused by the leopard pattern in the background ) , stamp & stitching is identical, material feels a bit heavier or is it maybe because this one is mint, this one fits me like a glove, allready went to the pub for a couple ( X 10 ) of beers, Owen & Paul, miss you guys but i will be there soon, thanks a lot :P

The only difference on the two lightweights, is one is unused. As these thinner shirts get worn and laundered, they keep getting thinner and lighter weight.
