    El Salvador Dark Tiger Stripe Set

    Post by nkomo on Thu Apr 26, 2012 5:22 am

    I have had this set for a bit, but have just forgotten to post it on the forum. This is an El Salvador set of locally made dark tiger stripes. From what I gather, these were used by the BIRIA type units. This set would date to the civil war time period in El Salvador.

    Cool! Looks like the colors were, at one point, sorta like Ecuadorian Tiger.

    Here is an inside shot of jacket. The inside, as you can see, is white. Looks like the camouflage pattern is screen printed onto the fabric. Perhaps this is why the jackets fade so badly.
