However this guy is a known RIPOFF artist and just for that I would keep my money .

Call it collector morals or even old fashioned but he has burnt almost everyone in the collector world , for what it is .

For this charge he would not ever get my money .

 

 

Owen,

 

 

i fully agree with that sentiment.

 

There is quite enough tigerstripe in the world to collect without feeding the sharks.

You need to ask Jeff Ashenfelter about VNMC pattern tiger stripe berets from him. He gave Jeff a super lame story about how the family of tailors buried these when the Communists took over, and just recently felt it was safe to uncover them and sell them to tourists. When Jeff confronted him, he finally admitted they were new made, and that all dealers do this type of thing.

 

I don't know about other dealers, but I don't have time to cut up good tiger stripe pieces and make anything out of it. Would rather sell the garments on their own merits.

Damn it, i'm not living in a fools paradise but what has this world come to , no wonder this crisis or should i even say depression is caused by human greed which is known to have no limits , unfortunatly dealers in the collecting business are no different thumbdown.gif:(crying.gif

...for starters the one you were talking about and i can tell you that there are many in the WW-2 collecting world as well but then sooner or later they get on the crap list and that is where they belong :lol:

A long time ago I posted a French cut M47 -53 tigerstripe jacket from a 5 set grouping all tailor made for 1 guy in Vietnam .

In this grouping there was ..

WW2 US camoulfage

Tigerstripe

Green

Black

Lizard .

Well as this thread is about Where Tigerstripes came from well here is one of its cousins .

If the Lizard pattern is carefully analysed you can see the basis for the stripes them selfs .

Here is the jacket .

The trousers have been cut in the French style but have a different back pocket .

They were made from a different lot of material .

On the jacket the browns have been printed first .

The trousers have the green printed first .

this shows us the level of thought given to the printing process !!

You can also see the tiger pattern.

Note the US style take up tabs at the rear .

These follow the 1st jungle jacket pattern

I think there are several green stripes missing in this tailor pattern, but clearly it s a 47/56 french pattern

And unlike the other jacket this one has hidden buttons .

That is it for me on these pieces .

Remember Tigerstripe is Lizards stepchild and with these pieces you can see the Vietnamese were still producing the pattern long after old French stocks had run out .

I am now off the the Red Lion German pub for a good night out so have a good weekend boys .
