NICE!!
I just made a pair of shorts out of my dads vietnam fatigue pats that i have had since high school. they were quite baggy from the knee down and figured they would make great shorts... i was right and the fabric is the best, it is so soft and worn in.
thanks for sharing!!

Great look. Are those birdwells the Olive color?

What color are those birds? Aqua? Khaki?

the light kind of washes the color out in the pic of the Birdies. They're a British Khaki w/ like a sea foam-ish lining.

Try your local army/navy surplus store. There was a box of these at the one I got mine at. Dozens. Might try to make them available online in the near future. In the meantime, happy hunting.
