    Do you have any sewing experience?

    If not, it might be worth paying a tailor $5 or $10 to do it for you.

    No offense but no way. If one posts a tutorial here, more fakes will show up on ebay.

    Haha well, I figured that service men would have brought their DCU's to their base tailor shops or rigger shops to have them modified. Also, only SF and like still wear DCU's and BDU's, not regular ol' grunts.

    Just to be clear, I'm not accusing of anyone making fakes. I just don't want people to find tutorial here on this forum then used it for their profits and left collectors hosed.

    Take my advice....go to a base tailor and have it done. I have several modified DCU's in my collection that have been hand sewn by the soldier and they look like crap. If you want it to look decent, take it to a tailor and have it done professionally.

    I guarantee you can find a Vietnamese lady who sews stuff around there (if you can't find any businesses run by the VN ladies, just ask at any nail salon).
