Stonewashed · Maharishi Fine Tailor Company

The Maha Fine Tailor Company has modified this U.S. Army field shirt for the Civilian Irregular Defence Group, with a kurta style collar and ribbed stitch detail. This Kurta, a traditional indian shirt, retains some of its original identity; a blanked out woven nametape and buttoned chest pocket.

Civilian Irregular Defense Group program (CIDG, pronounced "sid-gee") was a program developed by the U.S. government in the Vietnam War to develop South Vietnamese irregular military units from minority populations. Their uniforms usually combined fabrics of the U.S. Army with silhouettes and details more typical of the Eastern region.
