Here is the world’s ugliest RDF surplus store utility cut shirt.

Both arms are misprinted one received a few more coatings of ink.

It’s worth mentioning it’s good to see the black was the first striking.

Manufactured by Wynn who were also a government contractor for other items.

It’s hard to see how this actually made it out into the marketplace but it’s a funny old world sometimes.

owen

Right arm looks pretty cool with it misalined, left arm is downright ugly

"The 173rd Airborne soldiers at Long Range Patrol (LRRP) Training learning about the 'Five Points of Performance' "

 

These are experimental as evidenced by the epaulets visible on many of the soldiers and the waste adjustment tab visible in the bottom right.

I thought I might add a small contribution to this fantastic topic. A Marine top from a friend who enlisted in the mid 70s and used it. I am not certain of the manufacture date but I didn't see one similar for Marines in the topic so I thought I would put this example in for now.   Scott

Here's a lightly tailored Marines RDF jacket I found yesterday.  

1_front.jpg.69f8f6c206b487168ebe8b153500d1e7.jpg2_back.jpg.4b128dea5ef5f09376412c351874c05b.jpgtag.jpg.baf76879fe62c932bc119c339773a6c0.jpginside.jpg.c11c95079f41c02c3ea8058038ecb1ea.jpg

 

 

The lower pockets were removed and the back was taken in with darts for a V-shaped silhouette.  I thought Marines were not allowed to alter their uniforms?

 

It was found together with this other heavily used, unmodified jacket in small regular that is also notable for being made of several different ERDL fabric colorways.  The collars on both have the same pin hole arrangement.

Hey all, 

 

Does anyone know if there was a specification for ERDL? Kind of like Mil-C-43468 for woodland or mil-c-44436 for various nyco camo fabrics.

 

cheers

Is that something covered by the STOCK NUMBER?

No, Mil-Specs are not related to NSN/FSN
