Now that is an interesting item, the button colouration is quite unique i would have thought?

 

Good shot of the rear of the shirt showing the "anatomical" aspect of this particular print.....

Owen,

 

Here is a late war with double buttons on the small pockets. The colour is darker than the other late war varaints. And all the buttons are black

I loved the buttons on that shirt. That's not the flash, they were all that vibrant color.

Lovely zig-zag pattern, not easy to find thumbsup.gif

 

It was the only one I've ever come across.

 

I wish I could afford to keep everything I find, but unfortunately this was sold to finance another purchase...

Different angle .

These boonies always are halflined with black cotton and have low quality air vents that dont go through the liner .

 

Owen,

 

Making my way through this mountainous thread and I thought I would add that I've had two of examples of the light weight gold boonie you mention. Mine also had size stamps in the top of the crown (see pic). Both were tiny and appeared to be unissued.

Here are a couple more pics.

 

Unfortunately, with the relative ease of making a beret I know there is always a chance it could be fake

 

Matt,

 

Cool tiger beret! Jason Hardy had one virtually identical to yours for sale several years ago. I also have one that came from a Mike Force guy, but it was never worn and it does not have the M.F. insignia. Thanks for sharing.

Here is a mint large size 47-53 that I had in my collection .

Sadly it is long gone but you can see a stunning example of pre -Tigerstripe camouflage .

Again this is one of my old photos .

Cop

That jacket is the same custom pattern as my tigerstripe beret .

Hi All

Things have been moving along nicely on the tiger thread .

I just spent the last week in Las Vegas doing the old fashion business that I have !!!!

Chris

Hi there , you used to have a cool Phalic pattern shirt .

They always have those pockets shape but I have never seen one with the lime green buttons .

I have had several of these shirts and they always had a dark emrald green buttons , that also goes for the matching trousers I also had .

I may add the trousers took me 8 years to find and are the cut as mentioned in RJs book .

I have seen the silk MF tapes efore but I have seen lots of different in-country styles from gold on tiger and gold on black to black in tiger , endless variations .

Thanks to all for posting your French cammos !!!

I have now got something great to look at .

Was going through some 60's issue of Time magazine this morning and found this pic. Great camo variants, of tigers and caps. Plus the US advisor is wearing leopard pattern trousers and a exposed button shirt. But of course, someone will say they were never worn like this.....

American Green Berets in Position for War on Terrain

Original caption: Nha Trang, South Vietnam: Their Own Kind Of War. Members of the US Special Forces of "Green Berets" have their own kind of war in Vietnam. Here (in 1964 photo from files), two Green Beret advisers show Vietnamese Montagnard tribesmen how to operate a 57mm recoilless rifle so they can defend their village against Viet Cong attack.

Cambodian Mercenaries Inspect Arms Cache

Original caption: SAIGON-2/6/70-: Cambodian mercenaries inspect arms cache said to be one of the biggest Communist munitions caches uncovered in South Vietnam. Their "Mike Force" battalion, led by US Green Berets, found the supply area about 45-miles northeast of Saigon. US advisers said the cache possibly held enough military supplies for a Communist division.
