"Cast-Iron"Jacket, Herringbone Twill and Trousers, Herringbone Twill|
As above, these are modeled after the large flat pocket style fatigues with two big pockets on the shirt, and two big pockets on the pants. On this model we used brown plastic buttons of the style used in WWII. We use custom woven authentic 8.5oz 100% cotton Herringbone Twill in the correct weave pattern and custom dyed in a medium shade characteristic of HBT fatigues.
The differences between these and our regular run fatigues is that the fabric is heavier due to a heavy pigment used in the dyeing of the fabric. This heavy pigment gives the fabric is slightly heathered appearance which is the reason for the "Cast Iron" title. The finish is just as robust, durable in the wash, and resistant to the sun. These are durable just like cast-iron! Sale prices are still reflective of this new limited stock. Swatches are available for your review and testing.

Pockets, Cargo, 82nd/101st Abn
These pockets were historically worn on the Trousers, Field, Cotton, OD or M43 pants by troopers of the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions as of the late summer of 1944. The Army did not originally manufacture these trousers with large cargo pockets on the legs. When the Army Quartermaster Headquarters in the European Theater of Operations received their issued allotment of M43 trousers they saw right away the need to modify them with the same style of large cargo pockets that were included with the earlier Parachute Jumper Trousers. Troopers needed the large cargo pockets to hold the much needed additional supplies that each trooper was issued. Someone in the Army chain of command therefore ordered that the M43 trousers be modified with the addition of large canvas cargo pockets identical in the early jumpsuit styling. Though this was not specifically a rigger-made modification to the uniforms, the modification of the trousers with large cargo pocket was unique to strictly these airborne units.

Pockets, Cargo, 17th Abn style|
These pockets were historically worn on the Trousers, Field, Cotton, OD or M43 pants specifically by troopers of the 17th Airborne Division in the ETO of WWII. This unit was in the same position as the 82nd and 101st airborne divisions that the need to add large cargo pockets to the new M43 uniform was evident. For some reason however the style of the pockets worn by this unit was slightly different in dimension and included large canvas patches to reinforce the knee areas of the trousers. Though this was not specifically a rigger-made modification to the uniforms, the modification of the trousers with large cargo pocket was unique to strictly these airborne units.

|Extra Bellos chest pocket for Jumpsuits. Bear in mind the riggers in WWII did not always care what side pocket went on any side sleeve. Not always did a left pocket appear on the left sleeve. They were commonly mixed sides. Also, colors did not always match from extra pocket to jackets.||$20.00 ea
