Thier twill set does look to be made like the first ones that Schloss made in the 80's Tim did not start making the ripstop bdu style till 89.
Tim gave all the RidgeRunners a set of the twill in 88.

What Glenn is wearing in some photos (can't find the thread, from memory) are 100% cotton rip stop VN tiger stripes made by Tiger Stripe Products. Note the slanted chest pockets. That design is referred to as third pattern utilities from the Vietnam war. Tiger Stripe Products only made third pattern BDU's in rip stop cotton, not twill, and only for a limited period back in the late 80's, early 90's. There are some similar items available today but not exactly.

I will go with the pants Glen is wearing in the photo are ripstop but they are in bdu pattern which TSP did make in 89 I have one of the first sets made by Tim. Tim Schloss's first run of tigerstripe were in the twill pattern. Tim was a collector who took the time to blow up a southeast asian tigerstripe and have it copyrighted. His first stuff was a very good copy of southeast asian camo.

I first meet Tim in 88 at skirmish,while playing with the WidowMakers, he came up to me and comented on some hand painted camo that I had that was a mix of 44 dot pattern and rhodesian.

The booniehat Glenn is wearing in the photo in the news section looks to be short brim in twill.

By looking at the link that skipjack put in Tim has sold the Tiger Stripe Products logo.Have not spoken to him since 90.
