Tiger Stripes Part II

Recommended Posts

How were Tigersuits made in country? I found this staff film report, that shows the construction of uniforms starting at the 9:20 mark. While this footage covers olive green uniforms being made, in the end of the segment you can see they also make tigerstripe uniforms, presumably via the same manner.

Very interesting! Can anyone identify the pattern of tiger uniform shown? I wonder if the cloth was produced in Japan?


Looking for older Virginia Military Institute items: insignia, uniforms, cadet sabers, documents, and groupings belonging to VMI alumni.

Also interested in Virginia Reserve Militia (VRM) uniforms and insignia, or other items of general Virginia interest.

Kammo-man is having trouble loading photos right now so he asked me to include this.

 

He shot this photo at The Rose Bowl this last Sunday morning.

 

I am sure this will drive a lot of collectors nuts but I think it is totally cool that this guy had no clue he was wearing one of the rarest tiger stripe flight suits, and honestly didn't care. He thought it was a great piece of fashionflague and he was enjoying wearing it.

Tonight while watching "Any Which Way You Can" I noticed the Tiger hat on the background guy in the bar scene with Clyde.

You show Kammo-man something he has never heard about before, and it makes him go on the hunt.........
