    Arch & Jeremy will be proud. lol!
    This is my first-ever DCU item, kind of cool that it's a modified one!




    Close-up of pockets.


    Collar tag. Stamp on collar reads 217. Not sure what that is for, though.


    Lower jacket tag.

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately, he didn't have any patched DCU items, I looked, but with no success.

    I can just barely make out where the name & branch tapes were attached above the breast pockets, and the sleeve pockets cover up where any original patches before modification would've been.
    ...so I guess this one's gonna have to stay naked. lol!
    However, the shop keeper said he got this in a bundle of clothes from an ex-Marine, so there may not have been any patches on the sleeves to begin with...but in that case, I'm puzzled why there's no EGA emblem on the left breast pocket.
