THE REAL McCOY'S
TIGERSTRIPE FATIGUE SHORTS ADS
This particular variation of tigerstripe, known to collectors as Gold Tiger, is highly sought after as members of the punk rock group, The Clash, sometimes wore it. Never issued in shorts, it was not uncommon for troops to cut their issued tigerstripe fatigues. As these are really cut-off cargo trousers they feature a longer inseam that will look outstanding when cuffed once or twice.

The Real McCoy’s was created by Mr. Hitoshi Tsujimoto, an esteemed vintage collector and dealer, as a way to recreate the classic pieces from his archive of American fashion from the 40s & 50s. Inspiration alone was not enough to produce the ultimate reproduction, it required the sensitive minds of detail-orientated craftsmen in Japan. Additionally, The Real McCoy's reproduce materials and parts using the same methods and machinery from the past. While they create the ultimate reproduction, they seek to make it even better than the original. The Real McCoy's brand is split into distinct sub brands, to give each a clear identity. The Real McCoy's refers to the Military reproductions from the US Navy, Army and Airforce. Joe McCoy includes American sportswear, denim and workwear.
