A while back there was a question about elastic toped Tigerstripe shorts .

Well I was digging in my stash this weekend and found the ones I was talking about .

Here they are .

They have great color and I have owned them since the last Great Western show .

All of those camo swim trunks are pretty cool. As a SEAL I only saw one pair of tiger stripe UDT Styles wim trunks while on active duty. Gary Smith, one of SBI instructors wore them. I did see "Bermuda" style shorts made from cut off ERDL. Jungle Greens and the standard OD stateside sateen uniform pants. All the Team guys I knew on the West coast had the regulation UDT swim trunks.
