Thanks for your comments,
The insignia & qual badges, if the piece is legitimate, would not really be a red flag ( considering the continuous re deployment of SF troops ), nor the loose threads would be a problem.
I have DCUs And BDUs that I know are legit and still have the loose threads. Also have unused pieces with laundry tags stapled to them that were probably ready to go, but never used.
Probably due to the changing over to new US camo patterns.
This DCU is new, with tag ( under the Captain rank ). The name tape was removed but not there long; ghosting can barely be seen.
It could have been just back from one of the (mostly sloppy ass ) tailor shops that populate the off base areas, but doubt a Captain would patronize them.
Definitely not done in the Officer's Uniform shop on base.
In the end it is only an opinion, but it just don't feel right. Both the SF SSIs are too close to the tabs, and seem a bit off center, and crooked, as does the Air Assault badge. :suspect
