This version of the P-56 is the unofficial version in USMC Standard Pattern Jungle/Leaf (often referred to as ‘Mitchell’) Camouflage in a plain weave cotton for Special Forces in Vietnam. (See our blog page for more information Marine Corp camo).

In the early part of the Vietnam War (before official camo combat clothing was available), some Special Forces units which needed clothing that offered better camouflage qualities than the normal issue 'greens' for undertaking their deep and covert missions, had custom theatre-made garments produced from various camo print material. One such favourite was the Mitchell camo cloth that was really only ever officially used for helmet covers and shelter halves. They had their standard green P-56 shirts copied in the Mitchell Camo fabric.

Our recreation of this rare model shirt is made from a perfect copy of the Mitchell camo print on a 100% plain weave cotton, just like the originals. They have been given a hard Time Worn® finish to render a garment that has all the vintage appeal of sun-bleached, jungle-faded original.
