    Back from Afghanistan and thought Id share some of the things I brought back.
     
    The ANA would often go to the tailor at a COP I lived at to have things altered or made. So when I saw the combat shirts and boonies getting made I went and got one for myself. The ANA in the photos wearing the same kind of boonie and shirt was my friend and I also have a uniform and patches from him I may post later on.
     
    The "Afghan Commandoes" t-shirts were really popular with Afghan forces where I was (Kunar). Some would have them made into combat shirts like this one. How the shirts looked and were made would differ depending on the tailor making it. Some would also use a different t-shirt or sleeves from a different uniform.
     
    The boonie is just a regular boonie.

    Great story and great examples. The number of uniform variations in this war is staggering. Thanks for taking the time to show these and tell us how they were made. It is appreciated. Thanks!!

    Heres some more things I brought back: https://oefoif.forumotion.net/t5262-ana-tailored-uniform-and-more-from-kunar

    Thanks for the comments. Unfortunately those are the only combat shirt and boonie I was able to get. The tailor was always busy and it took a while to get them made. Soon after I finally got them I moved out of that COP.

    Heres pictures I found that I took of different combat shirts.

    This one is just a different tailors version of the "Afghan Commandoes" combat shirt. This one has a collar and more material around the shoulders.

    This one is actually made from a US multicam combat shirt.

    Nice collection! My cousin came back a couple of years back and he has unbelievable stories about his time of service. He is a really great man and he’s teaching me his workout routine. I even bought a pair of workout leggings and we workout every morning. Very inspiring!
