Pants had exterior leg pocket that snagged on everything!
Caps were soft and had a metal badge that stuck in the forehead when you pranged.

Default Tags

Only the white and green coveralls seem to have tags, i.e., been factory produced.

The formal uniforms are all tailor-made and the Ike jackets the same. The guys have told me they were issued a bolt of cloth and buttons and were sent to tailors that had patterns.

I'll look again but never remember seeing other than a laundry tag.

Crew Chief said after a point all uniforms were NOMEX - where did the Thai/Lao tailors get the material?

Default Update.

Hello all,

due to the sheer quality of information and the remarkable nature of the items that Tom has posted, i have merged a few of his threads into a larger one for reference purposes.

The level of information he has shared on these unique services is simply not to be found on other fora and deserves to be highlighted.

Thanks Tom for all your efforts it's appreciated.
