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.

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
