A Houston member wanted a combat shirt in tigerstripe so I took on the task. The only wicking shirt he could find was in gray, but I think it looks good with the tigerstripe camo. I put the breast pockets on the sleeves, modified the collar, added the shoulder pieces, and sewed a zipper in it.

It looks a lot better when worn than laying flat on the floor.

Looks like it turned out well.

Ooooh, I am having thoughts of a Desert Tiger combat shirt....

Ever since I saw the combat shirt on the Crye Precision website for the Multicam Combat Shirt, I toyed with the idea of making one for ACU, but instead of sewing it onto a moisture wicking shirt...mod it to where it is attached by zipper and has a similar collar to the mandarin velcro attach type. I think it could work.

Thanks for the comments. I always like to hear what ideas are floating in everyone's heads. I had originally thought of putting a mandarin collar on this one but the owner wanted this specific collar. When I do a Flecktarn one for myself, it will have the mandarin collar. AutinWolv, my wife liked it so much I just might do one in DPM for her.;)

On a side note...I've just gotten a special request to make a 3-point sling that is all Multicam. It'll be made from 500D Cordura fabric. I'll post the pics when done.
