Hello all. Seen this 1st pattern shirt for sale that says original but I am not to sure as haven't seen many here. The tags look super new and I am not sure if this is original or a repro. Any help would be good and also maybe a value if original

When I enlisted in the Army in 1980 they were transitioning from the green permanent press 'pickle suit' to the BDU. About the mid to late 80's they must of found a whole shitpile of these things because they actually reissued them and it wasn't uncommon to see people walk around with these and a BDU cover. The green VN baseball cap was not authorized. I imagine they were left over from VN and they just wanted to get them out of inventory. My 2 cents is that that is a legit set of 'jungles' as we called them. Clothing Sales sold them very cheap but again that was the 80's. Hope this helps.

yes, soldiers were still wearing Vietnam era OG jungle uniforms & boonie hats back in the 1980's , the Rangers had them.
