Deck Vest - Mitchell Camo


Free USA Shipping on orders over $100


Produced for TSPTR by John Lofgren, the Deck Vest is based on an original 1960's Vietnam era US Navy Riverine private purchase Deck Vest. Construction is true to the original, and all done on vintage Union Special machines.

The vest features a US Navy style shawl collar and scoop pockets. The buttons are mil-spec urea; the front zips up with a period correct Waldes zipper; and the pockets have leather reinforcement tabs.

It's sewn up in an exact reproduction of the US Marine Corps 'leaf' camouflage. US Army trials of 1953 produced two new camouflage patterns that were adopted for limited use by military personnel. Both patterns saw widespread distribution only as a reversible shelter half (1953) and reversible helmet cover (1959), with one pattern printed on each side. The USMC "vine leaf" pattern, consists of large overlapping dark green, lime green & ochre leaf shapes with brown twigs on a pale green background. The helmet cover and shelter were used during the Vietnam War while tailor made combat clothing in this pattern also appeared, made in Japan or South Vietnam from shelters or Asian made fabric copied from the US design.
