    Recent find

    New, never washed, 100% cotton ( non ripstop ) OG 107, circa late 1966- early 1967 Trousers, Men's , Cotton, Wind Resistant, or better known as  " jungle pants ".

    These are a transition from 2nd type trousers and would be the basis for the 3rd type.

    The most noticeable difference from previous and later models is the use of black colored waist cinches with black metal hardware.   The previous 2 types used a cloth tab and a button as a cinch.

    Later models will have olive colored cinches with black metal hardware.  


    As with everything related to the Vietnam war, there are no constants; these types trousers also have differences within their own type .

    These are nicely  faded 1967 contract jungle pants.

    Unlike the pants in post # 1, these actually have a contract date.   They also have drawstings at bottom of each leg and softer points on pocket cover flaps.

    As I mentioned above, early 100% cotton non ripstop jungle uniforms follow no set rule and some will have features of  previous types..

    Some will have labels that are correct for 2nd type uniforms, like the label of the pants in post #1 which contrary to the label, have no leg drawstings, nor cargo pocket tie straps.

    I believe these labels were simply leftover labels from 2nd type uniforms, which have no contract date at all ( all 1st types do have contract dates of 1963 or 1964 ).

    Very cool stuff, like the classic OD trousers. I still miss one of those pair of ripstop trousers for my unissued 3rd type blouse. The only problem is that i need the most popular size. Very Happy
