Green Party Suit

Description

Party suits were unofficial uniforms worn by flying and flight support personnel for social occasions throughout Thailand and South Vietnam. Based on the design of lightweight flying coveralls, they were typically created by local tailors in colorful fabric with patches and other embellishments.

This green cotton party suit by Maharajah was worn by the donor when he was stationed in Vietnam in 1971 assigned to the 411th Tactical Airlift Squadron. On the front is a round patch that reads “Participant Southeast Asia War Games.” On the shoulders are embroidered major’s rank and on the front are embroidered “Bob” and a command pilot aviation badge.
