I tend to lean the same way as Kammo-man on this shirt. It looks Viet made, not civilian.

Here are photos of a local made French style pullover made out of the same material.

I just picked up this duck hunter camo outfit. It's never been used and it has been packed away since the 60's. It was made of rayon in Japan and the label says "RETCO." The print looks very similar to some of the photos posted earlier. I know that not every duck hunter outfit from the 60's was worn by the military in SE Asia :) but I undertand that these belonged to a guy in the service. I will iron it out and take pictures of it and post them soon. It's kind of hard to tell on these photos, but the jacket has two lower pockets with buttons and flaps. The pants, size 33, have belt loops and tabs with buttons for additional adjustment. The pockets are also of the type with flaps and buttons. Any comments will be appreciated. Thank you.

Here is another interesting set of Duck Hunter/Beo gam camouflage uniforms from my collection. This is probably one of my favorite uniforms

 

This set came from a Special Forces NCO who was tasked to the CIA to help with the "Cuban problem", he helped train the Cuban exiles for the Ill-fated "Bay of pigs" fiasco. This NCO actually went to the Camo company in Florida and bought the uniforms for the unit.

After a long wait I found in one of my footlockers my 2nd model jungle boots .

Now I started to build my 1964ish Special Forces BeoGam guy .

I am using a Viet made patrol cap , a 2 pocket shirt with the 13 star metal buttons and 5 pocket trousers ,also with the metal buttons .

The jacket and trousers are a A-L size and are mint condition .

I ran out of time the other night so his LBE will go on tonight .

One question .

Is the black web belt correct for this time period ?

Yes, black belt is correct, but usually, they didn't tug the shirt in the pants when wearing camo uniform
