No this is more around the year 1968 to 69 but " Late War, heavy weight dense pattern " is the denomination from the Holy book "Tiger Paterns a guide to the Vietnam war 's tigerstripe combat fatigue patterns and uniforms". when this guy said "late war" for the TS that 's more around the year 69.

FYI the old school, long time experienced collectors have always had their own names for the various patterns. That book and the dude who wrote it rubbed people the wrong way. Without getting into back and forths, that is just how it is.

This was a recent purchase and I never would have touched this one if it hadn't have come from a friend of mine and if it hadn't have came from the Bragg area.

 

This is a late 80s or early 90s era Tiger Stripes Products jacket with sewn on tapes and SSI. Jacket is sun faded from use.

 

From my research, I have tentatively identified the soldier it belonged to and he was assigned to 7th SFG throughout Central and South America. I have reached out to him, but have not heard back from him yet.

Insignia appears to have been sewn to jacket for quite some time.

Thanks for your kind words, my friend. I hope the vet responds as well, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

TS shorts are copies. Now I just need to get the sewing machine out and dusting off my sewing skills.
