Tiger Stripes Part II


Recommended Posts

Here is a wild pair of tigers that came in my shop today. Standard ARVN issue, probably a size A-S but are unmarked. Whomever wore them took the hip pockets and one rear pocket off a set of Silvers and tailored them. Cool looking modification in my book.

Very cool. I once had a set of late war Tigers with about an inch of silver TS material added to the bottom of the pants legs. Like an rump I sold them when I decided to sell off my collection a few yaers ago. The rebuilding process continues, slowly.

Here is a pair of weird tigers from the flea market .

The pattern is like lizard but different.

These are typical Viet made and the lining is Viet Police Earth flower pattern !

Typical pockets on these custom pants , but something I have never seen before .

I have a question:

I bought this shirt from Duffy

post-9053-1300830318.jpg

 

The thing is someone's interested in this shirt.

How big is the chance that I will find another one in this pattern for a reasonable price?

 

I really want this pattern in my collection.

You might find another shirt like that but i can say that you will not ever find another shirt which belong to sog/tailwind member.

Keep it or you'll regret it some day

 

By the way, i have tiger boonie from same gentleman

I saw it on eBay that it was for a child, but other than that I've never seen one like it. Uncommon I'd say.

 

 

Yep, same one, and tiny. Any opinions on the pattern?

 

Here is a pic of a non tiger kids uniform posted on another forum that I will repost to show the trend....

It's a Thai pattern.

 

I agree. I used to see USAF stuff done in this pattern... jungle fatigues, flight suits or party suits.

Posting a couple of Tigers for comment / opinion as follows: First up a nice original Airborne cut shirt - what seems different about this example is that instead of a secondary brown/tan color, a jade green color is used. Shirt is faded towards upper back / shoulders to give an attractive color range. Any idea when this pattern shirt / print may have been used ? Shirt is a useful anglo size, but no stamps / marks. Normal shaved buttons.

Next up is a a civilian-type hunting jacket - Tiger print appears to be a correct SE Asia pattern type, buttons are typical SE Asia shaved-edge type. Jacket is cut as a hunting / chore jacket, with shotgun cartridge sleeves, and patch pockets (one removed though flap remains). Lined with quilted orange nylon. No labels. Grateful for any comment as to the authenticity of fabric used - I am pretty sure that this is SE Asia or Japan made, but not sure if this is some custom Deer Hunter special, or a civilian market item made using possible original spec cloth. Thanks for your thoughts...
