Country of Origin: Rhodesia
The Rhodesian Brushstroke pattern is legendary, from it's inception during the Rhodesian Bush War, to later service throughout Africa, a variant to this day remains the standard camo of the Zimbabwean Army. At one point, the pattern was noted as being so effective that it was in contention to replace the M83 Woodland pattern for the United States Marine Corps.
We're proud to now offer this outstanding pattern, reproduced in the same cut that was issued to members of the Rhodesian Security Forces. Featuring two breast pocket, accurate two-hole buttons, and the original "2nd Pattern" Rhodesian Brushstroke, this is the real deal. Designed to be tucked into trousers, this shirt works well as a hard wearing uniform shirt in temperate/tropical environments.
We lightened the density of the fabric from the original heavyweight twill cotton to a more lightweight polycotton for maximum comfort, while still looking that part. Otherwise, this is the closest piece of kit you can own other than an extremely overpriced original that you'd feel bad rocking in the bush!
We are extremely proud to be reproducing a piece of military history! Don't be fooled by cheap imitations. We're proud to be THE ONLY company manufacturing products in the original Rhodesian Brushstroke pattern based off an original bolt of David Whitehead Textiles 2nd Pattern fabric from 1979.
