    Nice, were these actually used in Vietnam, or is there still debate about this?

    No idea. I think that there's still some debate. This set *definitely* wasn't used, though. They've never even been worn to even cut grass, or hunt squirrels-- which is both good and bad, I guess. Good in that they tell us what they looked like new, bad in that they have no character at all. I'm not unhappy owning them, though. Smile

    Pockets are different on the shirts in the picture. Those both have twin pockets with button flaps and dont appear to have lower pockets. Nice set! I have one in brown around here somewhere.

    Fins...

    The guy in the center of the picture wear an duck hunter commercial garment
    The 2 others wear beogam pattern
    See: http://vonstuckcamouflage.free.fr/south-vietnam.php
    It is very unusual to see duck hunter commercial garment wear in Vietnam!

    Looks like even beogam was limited, in terms of diversity. I'm going to give a few of my other patterns a good, hard look against that jacket you've got (though I suspect that mine are actually Korean).

    Thanks for the reference!
