I knew that artwork so well as a kid

It seems in the original photo the asian guy isn't even wearing tiger stripe top but a French para smock

That would be late if indeed it's 1970, no??

Anyway cool, thanks for showing, took me down memory lane

You are correct that he’s wearing a French smock.
Myself and Spike went into a vortex over the painting and photo when he turned up a clear image in a magazine.

After long talks we worked out what was the hat.
A police pattern boonie cut down with this tape added.
So I made one.
The chances of my finding an original is zero but I have also known this art since got to be the mid 1980s when war in peace came out.

It was a fun project working it out on something that puzzled me for years.

The direct lineal descendant of the Vietnam era tigers being used by our Special Forces members in Afghanistan.  Desert tiger stripe combat shirt and pants (non-modified). Made by Tiger Stripe Products and most likely modified in Afghanistan.

This one is for that guy Gimp.
Here’s the gold colors printed on the classic silver Okinawa print.
I was at the printing house seeing this being made and took the pic.
This was several years ago.
I cut a piece of and it’s probably in my garage.

Some trousers I picked up. A light weight cotton, non-ripstop. Seem to be cheaply sewn together with no labels or markings. Pockets on the thighs, hips and have small buttons.

picked this hat up in the mid 1990's at a garage sale. I don't do VN era at all and always figured it's a repro, can any experts here confirm?
