Thanks, when did they start making these "Thai" repros with these tags?

 

The last two sets are very small, the "A-L" and the "A-M" closeups are from the middle set pictured. I have yet to scour the last set for markings.

 

Any idea on what the last two sets would fall into tiger pattern wise?

the middle set are golds, or if you use johnson's classifications, late war dense advisors.

 

the last set looks like what johnson calls john wayne sparse.

I don't know, but your set is probably a Tiger Product reprint, then dishonest seller added the Viet tailor tag, the ink stamp like yours never exists, only size was stamped

 

The other 2 set are legit Tiger Stripe pattern: the middle one is late war pattern in Asian cut with mid wieght material, the last one is Zigzag (or thing pattern) seldom encountered, the cut must be close to Og107 fatigue cut, probably another tailor made set

"Golds" and "Zig Zags"

 

As far as the suspected repros go, have these tags and stamps been seen before? If so when did they hit the market?

 

THANKS

Looks like it is a silver pattern

 

I concur....

 

Interesting - looks like there is some staining/discoloration near the bottom of the of crown. Do you have photos of the inside?

It's just one of the current fakes from eBay, you can tell by the bullet band and the brim, they are all made the same way, possibly out of real material.

It's hard to tell from the photo... From my experience, the brim usually has a rolled edge. However, there very well could of been some made the way yours is. Again, it's difficult to tell from the photos.

Hi guys,

What do you folks think of these trousers? Civilian copy or not? I picked them up at a local thrift shop with a mix of other camo clothes. They are made from lightweight, non-ripstop cotton and have a zipper fly. The zipper is marked "RAPID". The cargo pockets are secured with one button. I have had a few tiger stripe shirts, but they were made of a heavier material and I don't remember them having the standard issue US buttons. No tags or markings remain.

 

These remind me of the ones that we would see in the surplus shops in the 1980s, but I just wanted to make sure. Thanks for the help!
