Of all the amazing profusion of combat uniforms worn by French paratroopers in Indochina, the rarest is the Extreme Orient uniform that was manufactured locally in Indochina in the late 1940's. We have painstakingly recreated the jacket here. The fabric is an exact match to the original, and all details are copied as closely as possible. Color is the dark olive drab of the originals. The sizes are cut slightly large to allow for some shrinkage after washing. Keep in mind there are many minor variations in these uniforms.
