  2. Widely available on the surplus market.

    Lately, I've been seeing folks buying this stuff, wearing it and then claiming they are vets in an effort to get out of something. Like PTSD.

    Cochese, While this has already been answered for you, most DoD uniforms have a label on the inside of the article of clothing that will tell you exactly what it is and who manufactured it.

    I bought a pair of acu pants online.
    I had a prior service Airborne guy approach me on Bourbon St last St Patricks day. He was a initially irate thinking I was an Army poser but settled down after we discussed my prior service. Im a woodland and 7 color desert bdu soldier.
    I havent worn the acu pants since.
     
  7. It is called a coat. Its Army issue and worn over a tee-shirt and under a jacket. Its the regular state side uniform in whats known ACU (Army Combat Uniform). UCP is the color pattern and if Mil issued will be a 50/50 cotton nylon blend (or nomex in some cases with a set green square on set area's). The left shoulder will be the major command they serve under and the right side can be a US flag and combat patch for a unit they served with. The soldiers name should be on the right chest with U.S. ARMY on the left chest.

    It was called a blouse in the pre acu days. Im glad they changed that.
    The pants were called trousers. I forgot that.

    Is it illegal for a felon to be in possession of one? (just curious)
    I thought current uniforms aren't supposed to be sold anymore but if it doesn't have all the 'stuff' is it still a uniform?
     
  11. FWIW there is a patch on the shoulder area that I see in the picture...

    Nope......

    Ranger Joe's, US Cav, and a host of other places sell real deal uniforms online/catalogs. Plus, you can go to any Army Surplus store and get the new stuff as well.

    Here is more guys...

    Cav, thanks for the information.

    So accordingly, Spc. Brown of the 25th Infantry Division, with service in the 3rd Infantry Division out of Fort Stewart, got his coat stolen by this guy?

    It is technically illegal for someone not in the U.S. Army to wear an identifiable portion of a uniform: no U.S. Army name tapes, no rank insignia, no unit insignia. The jacket with only the nametape showing is acceptable for wear.

    Back in my time, it was considered unacceptable to wear utilities as casual wear for any reason. They were only to be worn by those earning the privilege and then retired when service was ended. Then again, a Marine being called a Devil Dog is now an insult, when it was a badge of honor in my day.

    How is that an insult now. My son who graduates SOI on Friday confirmed its an old school term for Marines. Not so much used these days but still respectful.

    Partially right. Wartime service with the 25th Infantry Division, current assignment of the 3rd Infantry Division (mostly out of Fort Stewart, but with a battalion at Ft. Benning).
