Tiger Stripes Part II


Recommended Posts

Well this suit went for a pretty steep price. I was outbid at $1100, it finally went for over $1500.

For those who didn't see it was a fantastic classic pattern/JWD custom first pattern jungle jacket and trousers. What was really interesting was the label on the trousers. Any of the big boys seen this before? Experimental uniform?

Here are two tiger stripe jackets that I picked up recently and both were used by a US Special Forces personnel during the GWOT.

 

First jacket is a standard green, black, and gold tiger stripe. This jacket has no manufacturing tag or maker's mark on the inside.

The second jacket is a desert tiger stripe shirt, which was also popular with SF personnel in the GWOT.

I've seen both modified and non-modified tigers (green and desert versions) being used in the GWOT. Plenty pics of both types being used by SF types in the field.

Here is a great Safari style tiger shirt I bought at the Portland show this weekend. Someone has taken an standard shirt and added two large / oversized pockets to the bottom. Then on the back they have added a belted type back.

Pretty cool in my mind.

Cowboy hat in the 1950s pattern Tiger Stripe. Has all the fine detail in the secondary colours. The additonal elements on the black hook motif, on the front of the brim, is one of the features of this pattern.

Its got a classic early war cut to it in a classic early pattern.

Even though its missing its sweat band that does not matter on bit as its fresh on top.
