Help ID these US Army HBT’s


Recommended Posts

Maybe these are common and I’m just missing something, but I picked these up today and the HBT material doesn’t seem as thick as the World War II or Korean war era HBT‘s I have owned. They have white stitching, the military star buttons, the black and yellow US Army tape Above the pocket but no manufacture tags inside of either the shirt or pants. There are some laundry numbers. They’ve been stored very heavily starched and pressed and many professional repairs done on the trousers. My guess at this point would be Post Korea Pre-Vietnam and because of the Larger size and no rank maybe a civilian contractor used Or maybe a prototype uniform before the sateens?? 
any help would be appreciated.

Troy.

I guess another option could be theater made for hot weather, being the lighter material. Just throwing ideas out?

Owen, You think post exchange set?  Wouldn’t they still have uniform manufacture tags in them?  Maybe things were different back then but my experience with post exchanges from the 80s Has been actual official uniforms for sale inside same as you get issued or a better quality option.   But if that is the case, what time period do you think they would be from then?  Late 50’s / Early 60’s?

100% PX store
They are always the same
Some have branded labels
Some don’t
Workwear companies made them same as knock off combats today.
