Redpath Notions – Hawaiian Plate Carrier

Friday, October 26th, 2018

We received a cool note the other day:

“Longtime follower here. I’ve been religiously following your blog since its inception when I was still in high school. I thought it would be cool to show you a product that I have been working on. This product is a Hawaiian themed plate carrier.

Why?? After seeing Hawaiian themed combat shirts, I felt like I could take things up a notch and make the carrier itself out of Hawaiian themed fabric. This was a fun side project and I’ll be making more in the near future.”

TROPIC LIGHTNING NEWS                          

March 16, 1970

FSB PERSHING – Most combat infantrymen fighting in Vietnam really don’t worry too much if their wearing apparel isn’t in step with the latest fashions.

One exception, however, is Sergeant James J. Ross, who just might be a winner in the Army’s Suggestion Program.  Ross now qualifies as one of the best-dressed Warriors of the 2nd Battalion, 12th Infantry, with a coat he fashioned for himself.

Ross’s coat of many pockets is truly a unique garb to say the least.  It features 24 large pockets for M-16 magazines and a pouch on the back to port a Claymore mine.

“I scrounged up the canvas material,” Ross said.  “I gave the measurements to our interpreter and he gave the specifications to a civilian tailor who made up the jacket for me.

“It’s really great to have on an operation,” Ross said.

Other Warriors are following suit.  “A few others in my platoon have had them made too,” said the functionally, if not fashionably dressed, Warrior sergeant.

South Korea’s Revitalizing Reforms Uniform

Monday, June 25th, 2018

This is a rare “camouflage” pattern indeed. Used exclusively by South Korea’s Capital Garrison Command (former name of the Capital Defense Command), it seems to have no practical purpose than to serve as a uniform.

Called the Yu-Shin bok (Revitalizing Reforms Uniform), it was worn up until 1981. The pattern appears to incorporate turtle shells which is significant considering the Geobukseon or Turtle Ships are recognized to be the first armored ships and were used by the Koreans to thwart Japanese attempts to conquer Korea in the late 16th century.
