    The 'Nam era OG 107 ripstop togs, including tie-bottom trousers, shirts (short-, log-, and a few modified 3/4-sleeved utility shirts), assorted jungle jackets, "hot weather" caps, and the many dozens of similar items I bought up as a young'un @ Ft Bragg yard sales in the late '70s. Shit still fits and ripstop means ripstop -- not a single garment purchased @ those days is ripped through some 38 years later.

    PS: forgot to include the jackets. several, all still intact as well.

    Lately I've been on a Patagonia kick. Their short sleeve button ups are made really well!

    Over the years, I've had bunch of Patagonia's A/C shirts. Great for hot weather and they have cool coconut buttons. A great company that gives back. There is an outlet in Santa Cruz if you are ever down that way and they have sales to boot.

    Are we talking brand or source?

    If you read Post #1 in this thread, I intended for it to reflect suppliers, but it seems to have taken on a life of it`s own.... :)

    I picked up a vest at Duluth Trading co.
    I had to see what the buzz was about TV ads and such.. The store has a LL.bean feel to it.

    I've been buying Kuhl pants lately. I like the lightweight styles, great for travel, hiking, working or everyday.. Also have buying some Woolrich shirts. Really dig the Duluth Trading clothing, but they don't fit what I need. A company I work with makes DTC's socks. Made in USA and top quality work socks.

    Heh. Yeah, that time for cargo pants/shorts seems to have come. I still love them, but depending on the occasion I'll think about wearing something else.

    Based on the discussion here, I ordered a few pairs of Kuhl pants today. Looking forward to them. I usually wear a dress shirt/pants for work, but can slide by on something a little more casual as long as I don't look like a slob. I'm thinking those should work well for that.

    I'll probably check out some of the other brands mentioned as well.

    Wearing one of their long-sleeve T`s right now (I bought 4 of `em in different colors). Excellent quality for the price !

    I've always owned Chippewa Odessas but my last set is getting a bit beat up. Been curious about Red Wing and a factory store opened up by me recently.

    Those look like their Iron Rangers, I like them. They make them in black so that might be my next set if they fit like the Chippewas do.

    I have some early 80's olive drab US Army shirts. I got them new at a flea market this summer for $1 each. These things wear like iron. Was told the were sanforized which makes the cotton more rugged. Whatever was done to it the seem impervious to abrasion & brush snags. The other thing I use is an 80s era M65 field jacket w/ liner. It's in the old Euro theater Woodland camo, it's another one that wears really well.
