    Nice jacket! I've always been a big fan of tiger stripes - Philippines has issued some good copies of the original South Vietnamese pattern.

    Hard to say if it matches one of the South Vietnamese Tiger stripe patterns exactly (probably easier to see the pattern on the back of the jacket, since the pockets disrupt it so much). It might be pretty close to the "Vietnamese Marines Corps Dense" or VMD pattern as defined in Dennis Johnson's Tiger Patterns book.

    The thinner stripes and predominance of brown infill actually makes the modern Philippines tiger look more like the post-war commercial varieties.  In fact, I almost got rid of a set I had because I thought it was commercial.  Commercial companies are far more tiger savvy now - I've seen civvy runners, backpacks, shorts and hoody jackets in some pretty fair representations of SVN patterns although usually not to scale.

    As an aside, how easy is it to get insignia and name/service tapes in the Philippines? Do they have shops that sell these to military pers and civilians?

    The persons who owns this uniform says that his classmate team is responsible for the killing of the notorious ABU Sayyaf group leader Abu Sabaya, responsible for the kidnapping in Dos Palmas, palawan in 2001. as for the Navy insignia and tapes i have no idea if can be easily acquired, i'm still trying to find time to visit there Camp in Fort Bonifacio, but some service tapes of the police and army units can be bought in some shops outside of Camp Aguinaldo and Camp Crame. just tell them what are you looking for, Civies can easily buy.
