    South Korea Marine Corps Pattern circa 1980's

    I think at some point this pattern stopped becoming a combat uniform and became solely a parade uniform as one usually finds these bedecked with all sorts of insignia, a lot of it direct embroidered. I was lucky to find one shirt relatively unembellished.

    Heh... yeah, the amount of BLING on the parade versions is something to behold Smile You've got yourself a really nice example there.

    Picked up one of these flamboyantly decorated uniforms recently.

    There is a large Korean community in Queens NY . First time I saw this pattern and accompanying decorations was during a Korean New Year parade in Flushing..
    There were 3 groups of Korean Veterans marching in these eye catching uniforms and others.

    Saw this pattern and other SK patterns again  during the last few Veteran's Day parades in NY City.
    I posted some photos on this forum of one of the past parades showing  attending Korean Vets.

    One  of the large decorations is  directly embroidered right through a  pocket rendering it useless.    Parade uniforms or perhaps for garrison use, but definitely interesting..
