My pal Trey Moore at mooremilitaria.com has come out with a new reprp of original Vietnam war era tiger stripe. This time in the version of tiger stripe that is the most popular and well known. It’s name given by collectors is “John Wayne” for the reason it was the pattern JW and the other actors wore in the film The Green Berets.
John Wayne Dense Tiger Stripe Set. These are the classic “advisor” pattern and are the “Anglo” cut with US Sizes. True to originals, these are more slim fitting than many of the repros on the market. This run is part of a limited partnership and available solely through us in the US. These have incredible detail including color, medium to heavy twill fabric, dish buttons, green thread, and simple ink stamp for size in garment. Shirt features two double button chest pockets, left sleeve cigarette pocket, hanger tab in neck, and a gusseted double button cuff (C2B-EXP-3P1 style). This is the classic John Wayne pattern as seen in the movie, The Green Berets. Sleeve lengths and inseams are “regular” length. Trousers feature two rear bellows pockets and two thigh bellows pockets with double buttons. There is also a small single button “cigarette” pocket on the lower left leg. There have a chrome HAMA zipper and one button at the top closure. Green thread construction and no take up tabs at the waist. (ZIP-7P1 style). Sizing Note: Please note that the measurements given are the actual measurements for the waist and chest
I have bought a lot of stuff from Trey over the years and all of his reproduction uniforms are top notch. If you ever wanted a set of this stuff and didn’t want to pay 5,000 dollars for a real set that is only big enough to fit a 10 year old boy, now is your chance.
