3592 U.S. Hanten Shirt · Washed Cotton Sateen Black BLK-108FF
Stonewashed · Maharishi Fine Tailor Company
This Hanten Shirt has been cut from a U.S. Army Cotton Sateen. The Maha Tailor Shop carried out these cross-cultural modifications in Vietnam for the uniforms of the Civilian Irregular Defence Group.
The CIDG was set up by the U.S. government during the Vietnam war to enrol minority populations as support units to the Army. Often the unofficial uniforms they wore would combine U.S. Army / Navy fabrics with silhouettes and details more typical of the Eastern region.
