To me the pouches look like an Italian varient for the M1938. His hat has me more curious.

 

Was thinking the pouches were a CISO varient with shoulder strap absent or removed

When I look at the picture the strap looks like the leather one the link shows.

for sure its from a bandoleer for 5.56 ammo. you can see the LC "Lake City" and the start of the ink stamp "M193" which is the name for the 5.56 55 grain ball ammo and the ammo came on 10 round stripper clips for loading the 20 round M16 mags

Hello Gents,

 

I would appreciate some assistance with this uniform. It is made of a very light material and has no markings. The buttons, from what I can tell, are the US made version. As you can see the pockets are on the bottom of the shirt and there are no 'map' pockets on the trousers.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

 

Paul

Backside. Must have hade some time of funny sun exposure due to the uneven fading. Arms show more color than the body. Or maybe the dying technology was really crappy.

The majority of gold tiger stripe that I have seen has some uneven fading. It is frequently like your shirt where different parts have different fades i.e. sleeves on your shirt or pocket flaps or cuffs, etc, etc. I have often wondered about this as the other Japanese manufactured TS does not seem to show such variations on a regular basis. Either the dyes where very unstable or the garments parts where cut from different batches of fabric. All in all does not seem to be the usual Japanese high quality.

Here's a published shot of an advisor and his radio guy.

I have seen the full version of this picture many years ago.....

My question is has anyone seen the full version also ?

I seem to remember the advisor was wearing tiger trousers.
