VIETNAM BEOGAM PATTERNS


Recommended Posts

Thought you all would like to see this photo, identified as having been taken in Viet Nam in 1966. It's a big guy, and you can tell the uniform is too small for him. Check out the WWII-style double buckle boots. Probably hard to find shoes in his size, too.

Gr8 pic thanks for sharing thumbsup.gif

 

I would guess that the pic was taken earlier than 1966, but thats just speculation.

The uniform looks like a "Kamo" brand duck hunter cammo.

 

I love the Madsen m/50 SMGs. :D

Hello all,

 

just been searching through some old shots of mine and realised that i had not posted this item here.

It has been shown elsewhere, but i think this is a fitting thread for its inclusion too.

 

My locally made flight suit.

It s an outstanding flight suit, do you know whether it was worn while flying or just like a party suit ?

 

The beret also looks great, it would be nice to see the inside :D

Hello Copran Jerome, and Owen.

 

Thanks for the kind words on the suit and beret. I have some extra shots of the beret that need to be resized to forum limits, i will post them soon. Owen, watch your inbox.

 

Copran, the suit is basically a fully functional garment, i would imagine it was worn as an operational item and not as a party suit.

I have some higher resolution shots you are welcome to if yourself or Jerome would like to PM me your e-mail address, you will then be able to see the level of work and detail that went into this garment in much better detail.

You are a real champ .

Thanks for the Beret shots .

One of the best I have ever seen .

Also in my mind one of the most difficult pieces of Vietnam headgear to find .

There are copies out there but they dont even come close to your top shelf Beogam beret .

Thanks for sharing Pactrick .

Owen,

 

i know it drives you nuts....dig around in your warehouse and find me a left hand.

 

Here are my beret shots that i mentioned in an earlier posting, the beret is partially lined in the crown,and is a mid-weight material.

 

Of note is the fairly uncommon maker.

The interior of the beret also has a reinforced area of the typical type for a beret flash.

 

 

 

Patrick.

A set I picked up at a local dealer a few years ago. Not being fully conversant with 'beogam' these, however, looked old enough and significantly different to recent commercial 'duckhunter' stuff.

 

I suspect that this garment maybe period Hong Kong made for the commercial market and am wondering whether there any documentation of 'beogam' jumpsuits being used for anything other than aviation purposes. The only tag is a gold 'L' on black bevo woven size label in the lapel.

A pattern overview.

Hi Patrick

 

Thanks a lot for your pics , youve got a several pieces in Beogam thumbsup.gif

Your beret is made with one of early pattern twill of CIDG CLASSIC the particularity of this twill

Is the larger of screen with 2 differents types of spots is same at 99 % but 1 group of spots is differents and decal

One of pattern who s turn me crazy before i get one big size shirt with full screen pattern present on the back

The cut of shirt is 2 chest pocket with external bellows no cuffs one sleeves ,and 2 pieces of twill built the sleeves

The cut of trousers is look like OG utility trousers 4 pockets ( like my trousers with add zippers pockets on legs)

Have got 3 sets in this pattern is one of rarest we can find actually ( Vernon Gillespsi worn this type of pattern)

My CIDG patrol cap is made with same twill than your beret

 

For your flight suit is just SUPERBE w00t.gif

 

To Owen

Hello Jerome,

 

many thanks for the additional information on my items and the kind words, i have added the details to my notes and it is much appreciated.

 

I have been lucky in the last few years to be able to add a few interesting Asian made examples of this kind of camo as a supplement to my US produced commercial versions.

 

Here is another quick addition to the thread.

Again, if a member wishes higher resolution images for their own use, feel free to contact me. I have more shots of details of the print,bleed through, construction etc.

 

 

 

 

 

Patrick.
