Nam Jacket in Olive

Nam Jacket in Olive

TSPTR's take on the classic Vietnam War era US Army 'jungle jacket". For this edition they've reimagined the jacket in a soft 8oz mercerized sateen cotton twill, woven in Portugal. The prefect weight for a spring summer layer.

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 specialized uniform for Special Forces personnel in Vietnam. The single-breasted jacket 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.
