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.

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

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.

I swear when the guy showed them to me he said they were repros, They are big and fit me. I looked at some other info there is supposed to be an inspection tag on the waistband, whoever had these didn't like that and popped the thread on the waistband and took the tag out., oops! one shot with button detail.
