Our USMC Herringbone Twill utilities are made from our own American made custom loomed material, color-fast dye finish, and copper buttons. Our fabric is the MOST authentic fabric available.  It is TOTALLY accurate in weave, weight, color, and finish.  Our fabric will not show sunlight through it when held up to the sun as with our competition.  Our HBT is so authentic that even those associated with the new national USMC museum cannot easily tell the difference between our fabric and original fabric. The color will last much longer with our more colorfast dye process. You will have no worries about our fabric turning white or some other color from washing or exposure to the sun.  You can "Salt them up" as much as you like.  In addition, our USMC buttons are made out of copper with an antique copper finish. Better material, better dye, and better buttons are continuing to make our utilities the best in the world.   

    Our Herringbone Twill Fatigues and utilities are the best value you can buy. We recently had the opportunity to compare the weight of the HBT fabric used by one of our competitors on their camo USMC utility trousers. The comparison was fair as both were the same style and size and never washed or worn. Our trousers weighed in at 26% heavier then theirs. That's almost a quarter of the weight. Our fabric was custom matched to original samples for weight and construction. This factually proves that our fabric is more robust and will hold up longer to serviceable conditions.

      Our list of satisfied customers could easily outnumber the pages on this website.  Among our satisfied customers include many Marines who swear by our products.  American constructed uniforms for our American veterans and historians!!

Swatches? Just ask us!

We would be happy to send out swatches (2"+/- square pieces of fabric) to anyone who wishes to inspect the quality of our materials.  Please send us a self addressed and stamped envelope to the above address and we would be happy to supply a swatch of any fabric we use in our garments.
 

Pattern 1941 Marine HBT Utilities

Marine HBT P42 Camouflage Uniform
This is a replica of the 1st pattern reversible or P42 Marine Camo uniform. Using our authentic Herringbone Twill we print the U.S. Camo pattern on both sides like the original uniform. Both the green and tan side breast pockets feature our ink stenciled Eagle, globe, and Anchor.

We also reproduced the camo helmet covers in both the 1st model which does not include the foliage slits, and the later model with the slits. We follow original Marine Corps specs to install foliage slits authentically.  Please specify in the comments section of the order whether or not you prefer your helmet cover with or without foliage slits.  Some historians claim that the foliage slits are a feature unique to earlier manufactured helmet covers, and the slits are typical of later dated helmet covers.  It is difficult to confirm this simply because the original specs used to manufacture the helmet covers are dated 1942 and include a section to install foliage slits.  Therefore is it possible to assume both covers with slits and without slits were used since from the beginning.

Please check the care page for instructions on how to care for this garment..

Our USMC utilities are the only uniforms produced in the USA using fabric made in the USA.  We have competitors that offer replica uniforms made in other countries such as China, Pakistan, India, and Mexico.  We know that serious historians and veterans expect American made quality for the uniforms they will wear with pride.  Historians and veterans want to look good and feel proud, and our products will deliver satisfaction through and through.

This hat is made from cotton Herringbone Twill and features the Eagle Globe and Anchor. The visor is lined with rigid heavy cotton duck material. A very high quality piece of headgear.

We authentically duplicate original utility covers for materials, construction, and craftsmanship.  One example of this is the bill, or visor.  Ours are made from authentic materials which render the bill rigid yet flexible.  Also, we duplicated the original Eagle, Globe, and Anchor for a very authentic look.

Marine Khaki Cotton Uniform
This is the Summer Service uniform which at the beginning of WWII consisted of shirt, tie, trousers, belt, and hat. This uniform was the common uniform worn early in WWII by Marines stationed in the pacific at locations such as Wake Island, Pearl Harbor, Philippines, etc.  The shirts were historically made from a lightweight comfortable cotton shirting and the trousers and hat were made from durable cotton twill. 

Our shirt is accurately replicated using a 100% cotton oxford shirting that has been pre-shrunk and is color matched, lightweight, and very comfortable to wear.  It is constructed authentically with the distinctive scalloped pocket flaps, characteristic of USMC styling.  The fit is consistent with what some Marines term as a "tailored" appearance, meaning the body is tapered for an athletic build.  We use 100% cotton thread sewn with a fine needle and tightly stitched for that high quality look.  Buttons are solid cast light brown melamine with 4 holes.  All body seams were sewn double chain stitch. We also include the white cotton fabric panel behind the buttons characteristic of the WWII era summer shirts. A matching wedge-point tie made of the same shirting material is also available.  This shirt was also at times worn under the Winter Service Coat as part of the Winter Service Woolen Uniform in lieu of the mustard wool flannel shirt.  Because of the tapered athletic fit, customers with larger ads are advised to order up one size.

The trousers are made 8.5 oz khaki cotton twill in the correct shade of mustard/khaki. Thread is 100% cotton khaki and buttons are solid melamine cast tan color with 4 holes.  Construction is authentic with double needle chain stitching on the inseams and outseams.

 The Khaki garrison "Piss-Cutter" cap is made of the same khaki twill with rounded corners and insignia eyelet.

Marine Parachutist Utilities.

These are the early WWII production US Marine Corps camouflage parachutist utility jacket, trousers, and smock.  These garments are made in the reversible green/tan camouflage herringbone twill fabric.  We us our quality and robust HBT fabric to produce a highly authentic replica of this extremely rare uniform.  The coat and smock both have the distinctive angled pocket flaps.  The trousers have the large seat pocket and angled pocket flaps.  The smock has the large back panel storage pocket typical of the 1st pattern camouflage version with the angled chest pockets.  All details are authentically duplicated including black finished Scovil snap fasteners and talon bell pull brass zippers. 

In order to prevent fraud we have stamped "WWII Impressions Reproduction" in black ink inside one or more of the pockets of each of the garments.  The smock has the stamp inside the two lower thigh pockets.
