DPM: ARVN XL · Airborne Camouflage

These Trackshorts feature DPM: ARVN XL, a fantasy oversized version of the grailed Vietnamese camouflage.

The rare disruptive pattern worn by paratroopers of the Army of the Republic of Vietnam and then adopted by some of the U.S. advisors to the ARVN. Their own U.S. uniforms were re-made in the Vietnamese pattern in local factories or tailor shops - in part because this helped show some solidarity with the ARVN, and in part because of the popularity of the pattern itself during the 1960s.
