Regular price $495.00

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very good condition service worn Pattern 1944 United States Marine Corps Reversible Camouflage Utility Uniform Trousers. This cotton HBT (Herring Bone Twill) Camouflage pattern uniform was issued to Marines at the end of WWII and during the Korean war. This pattern was seen as an improvement over the one-piece "jungle" coveralls, which lacking a drop seat, made "relieving yourself" difficult in combat situations. However, the Marines who wore the Camouflage on Tarawa and elsewhere were easy to spot when moving (as opposed to be stationary) and the pattern was discontinued. The Uniform Coat and pants were both designed to be reversible. The outer side is the base green "jungle" camouflage pattern, with the tan or "sand" side inside the jacket and pants.

The trousers are in wonderful condition with minimal color loss and fading. All snaps and black U.S.M.C “doughnut hole” buttons are present and in good original condition, with light wear to the "blackened" finish. The reversible open bottom hip pockets on each side are intact, with all snaps working. The fabric shows some staining and has some small tears, as expected from use in service. The trousers themselves appear to be tailored to better fit the user, done so more than likely for an officer upon request.

This is a great example of a USMC reversible camouflage P44 Uniform, one that looks like it was "really there. A very nice example, ready to add to your Pacific War collection!
