TSPTR Cotton Nam Jacket

$365.00
SKU13441

Officially designated ‘Coat, Mans, Combat, Tropical’, Natick Labs designed the US Army tropical combat jacket and trousers in 1962 following a request from Army Material Command for a specialised uniform for Special Forces personnel in Vietnam. The single-breasted jacket was made from 5½ oz. wind-resistant cotton poplin in OG-107 and featured two slanted chest cargo pockets and two lower cargo pockets. The design also boasted epaulets, waist take-in tabs, pen pockets behind both chest cargo pockets and an inner gas flap that was designed to prevent chemical agents leaking through the front button closure. The tropical combat uniform was ideally suited to Vietnam because it was both lightweight and quick drying, but it's exposed pocket buttons had a tendency to get snagged in the jungle so subsequent versions were developed

TSPTR have removed the epaulettes and gas flap and shortened the length to create a less fussy hybrid. The same weight and quality poplin as the original has been reproduced and then overdyed using natural dye.

In their own words "From garment to accessory and old to new, we share the stories we love that are true, soulful, and need to be heard."
