    Very nice jacket Steven! You hardly see any SF DCU's with the Arabic name tape on them. For what you paid for that set......you basically stole it from the guy!

    Nice jacket! Those tabs, I don't think are in country made. I can't clearly see it, but is there like a horizontal pattern to them? And is there a merrowed edge?

    Maybe I should add more to my Theatre made patch thread... Question

    Is the patch thicker around the edges? And, on a side note, I have a set of SF tabs with brown borders like that, made in the US.

    As Andrew says the two upper tabs looks to be US made, I guess it's the brown edge that makes them looks so different from the AB tab. Here are some to compare with, the first two are US made:


    Afghan made:

    and the last two are Iraqi made:

    Agreed, very cool jacket. I'd be willing to bet that arabic nametape is theatre made.

    My ruling, everything but the arabic tape is US made.

    Very nice to see the brown bordered tabs in use.

    I've seen those tabs with the brown borders and been skeptical about them. I'm glad to hear they are legit in certain cases.
