What makes you say that? I'm curious, I have no idea what would be an indication, I'm not trying to say your wrong

on the left a 1996 camo and on the right the 1992 air force camo, you can see the button and tab to adjust to the figure i was told they are only on female uniforms if this is true i dont know but it sounds totally possible though there are no male female marks on the tags

The adjustment tabs were just an improvement to the original BDU design and were used by both men and women.

Looking for older Virginia Military Institute items: insignia, uniforms, cadet sabers, documents, and groupings belonging to VMI alumni.

Also interested in Virginia Reserve Militia (VRM) uniforms and insignia, or other items of general Virginia interest.
