I recently obtained this tiger strip jacket at two tiger stripe boonies indirectly from a garage sale. This is the standard Veit Nam pattern is it not. Thanks...

What became the most famous of all tiger stripe clothing began hitting the silver screen as the war was actually happening.

Original Okinawa manufactured cloth was procured by the studios and made into Hollywood non standard but look a like garments.

They followed the basics but actual correct details are slightly different from issue items.

There are 3 variants.

 

Here's a green beret type Classic pattern with makers label.

This pattern was used in various movies.

Close encounters of the third kind used this tiger.

Here's a shirt with a look a like name tag made from non issue tape that is typical for a background actor wardrobe.

Again the US ARMY is on non standard tape.

Look a like works ok....

The buttons are non standard but are 1950s surplus type attached with tan thread.

Don't believe me ?

 

Here's a issue one on the left

Here's the paramount on the right.

Right has an extra pleat copying the natural fabric fold.

This leads me to believe the Hollywood is a copy of a copy.... Some one did not actually have an original sample in their hands...

Or

Just copied a photograph.

That's ok.

Small on the paramount Tiger on the right.

The original war time fabric really makes these shits pop.

No doubt cut for the larger western build.

 

This shirt being background has no stiffeners in the collars.
