This is a piece I chased for 20+ years.

 

A friend bought this back in the early 1980's at Rose Bowl flea market in a pile of misc. hunting clothing. Every time I saw him I would hit him up and ask if he was ready to sell it, and finally one day he said yes.

Congratulations as persistence pays off. Is this a French Indochina War era left over uniform worn during the US time period in Vietnam?

Different patterns and cuts were used. The one shown by Bob is the classic "TAP" French Airborne cut (looks like a TAP 47/52?).

 

This photo shows the French "TAP" example on the left, the Vietnamese Pink/Purple/Bulletproof/Blood Cake/Huyet pattern in the center, and the French TTA (straight legs) pattern on the right.

Why that Owen?

TTA 47/52 allégée is a cut that appears in 1947, and is modified in 1952.

No pocket on the hips, shoulder pads, slits at the tips of the sleeves.

That's what I see above?

 

Then, that 47/52 cut received at least 3 or 4 different camo designs (with some either used in Vietnam, Laos or Cambodia).

They were similar to the TAP 47/52, 43/53, 47/54 and finally 47/56. 

 

What do I miss?

A French print with dubious modifications what’s your point directly?

Some things never change, do they?

 

So this is a first print to you?
