After WWII the US military continued to occupy the Japanese island of Okinawa. In fact they still have a sizeable military base there to this day. The location of the base proved to be instrumental in the subsequent wars the US was involved in, such as Korea and Vietnam.
Special Forces units which travelled between the war zones and the base would often have garments custom-made by local Okinawan tailors to better suit their unique combat needs for when they returned to combat. Camouflage caps, shirts and trousers were often produced for these units, and today in the collectors market are referred to as ‘OKINAWA’ garments. They were unofficial non-issue garments, but nonetheless are highly desirable in the collectors market today, and are quite hard to find.
Made entirely in Japan, who are the gurus in producing these types are garments, our recreation is made from an outstanding Mil Spec quality HBT which we had custom-made for the purpose. The Frogskin camo print is accurately captured, rendering a cap of superb quality and authenticity.
