    Fabric is surprisingly lightweight, to the point where I would worry about it ripping if I wore it outside.

    There is evidence of a removed name tape and collar rank insignia which left darker less-faded "ghosts" on the fabric.

    Something else was removed from the right sleeve as well.

    The guy who sewed on the name taped had some serious amount of beers... Laughing
    But looks not bad.

    With all the insignia that was on that, it probably belonged to a REMF officer! We Never had anything sewn on our Tigers in the field! Sometimes the Yards did, but not the Americans.
    The jacket/shirt is the late war tissue paper thin variety. These were a pain in the ass in the field! I think that at least 1/3 of my in the field resupply was replacement pants cause they didn't hold up worth a damn in the bush! The shirts seemed to last a little longer.
    The earlier heavy uniforms could be found by scrounging around and I did my best to have at least the heavy pants to wear.
