thought you folks might like my new SOG related Tiger purchase. A nice modified "over the fence" jacket, as I am sure you all know thesis a rare beast... this was custom tailored by SIG veteran Robert A. Bradow along with his 1-0 vest. I have his badge team jacket and beret on the way so will pos that too... its not Tiger though!

Paul, The shirt Not is a post war. it is a Tiger Stripe Modified Cross Border shirt used by Robert A. Bradow in Vietnam war era.

Hello everyone,

 

Been reading this topic for some time now without ever really partaking.

A couple of days ago I took my first baby steps and purchased off eBay these lightweight late war silver pattern, or so I think.

 

(I couldn’t wait to have it in my hands and take the photos myself to show you so I used eBay seller’s pictures, as it is mine now anyways, I hope it’s no issue otherwise I’ll take them down)

Just call them 

late war light weights and you can’t go wrong.

 

Once you get your first tigers the fun begins !

My first pair of tigers were the exact same as your new ones and I have had hundreds over the years good luck.

Hey guys,

 

Got this one as well. This is Thai Tiger right?

Do you guys know anything more about this? It is made like a classic jungle uniform.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the response Owen!

Way later

the synthetic labels are a give away even though wartime Thai pattern usually had white overlock stitching inside some seams.

First saw this suit about 10 years ago and was hoped that some day our paths would cross...... thanks to Bob at Vintage Productions they finally have. 

 

Its a really well made copy of a K2B - looks like one was disassembled for the zips. The fabric is quite unique, I have never seen this before. Its the VNMC early war pattern scaled down to about 70% of original size. Its high quality print on polished poplin exactly line the early VMNC uniforms. 

 

Interested to know if any one else has come across anything similar

Colours are the same as the first ARVN pattern that is seen mainly in patrol caps, but this is probably just coincidence.

I looked at this suit at Bobs also it’s a one of a kind Japanese tailor made suit.

Okinawa was a busy place mid 1960s turning out some beautiful pieces of art.

Great score and good to see it went to a good home.
