I have a need for a set of Viet Nam era jungle fatigues. Does anyone know of repros being made? I have my originals but my skeletal frame from back in the day has put on a few pounds.:rolleyes:

A little pricey, but can even get tiger stripes here...

I just threw away a couple of pairs of tiger stripes...Sorry.

Hard to believe I weighed 130 lbs when I was medevacced out in 66. Those days are long gone.

Seeing what originals are going for now, you'd better dig through the trash!!

I've got several X-small Long and Small Regular - not sure whose they were, but they have my name on them - if that helps. We got unlimited amounts when my ODA worked at JOTC in Panama.

At those prices, it sure is tempting. :eek: I kept one set of my OG-107s (jacket has lower pockets removed and sewn to upper sleeves so the shirt could be worn tucked in, "O-Pos" printed over left breast pocket), one pair of jungle boots, my cotton web A-7A strap belt, and stabo harness. If the economy gets bad enough, I might have to sell them...otherwise, they'll be passed on to my sons with my dress greens. ;)

I've got 4 or 5 pairs of issue jungle boots, never worn, in size 8 1/2 R - seems I'm a 9 now.

I used to be an 8, now I'm an 8 1/2. ;)Can we talk?

You guys sound like a couple of VNAF A-1E pilots - a pair of pliers. Do you also wear LARGE wristwatches? :rolleyes:

I still have one set of Jungle fatigues and a set of Tiger Stripes. Display items only nowadays. No way I'll ever squeeze into them again.:rolleyes:

Unfortunately, it is worse than I thought! I dug through the duffel bag, and I was an 8, not an 8 1/2... but am still a 9! If an 8 will do you... squeeze that foot in... let me know. Never worn. Panama sole. I'll cover up my SSAN, which - like a good troop - I'd written into the inside as soon as I got them. :D

Name your price. I have greenbacks and some leftover MPCs.;)

Bob - that "C" cap you're wearing is making it difficult to sleep without waking up screaming in the middle of the night. :rolleyes:

Just picture me standing on the other side of the Iron Curtain back in the day, posing as a rather dull infantry private in Tito's HQ, while worming my way into the kitchen detail, bottle of Ricin concealed behind my commie belt buckle.;)

So...if I ever see you with your buckle undone and an umbrella in your hand, I should run? :eek:
