    The 2 piece with button pockets are the ones used in Nam.. Those were more predominant in the 80's. I've had several of the button pockets with theatre made insignia over the years. Never had one with the zippers with anything Namwise on them. These witht he zipper came out to late for even the embassy guys to have. If you find one in a herringbone weave, It's made from the USN flight suit of the time, so it would be OK, but not that particular one.
