    You can see that at one point this was a Ranger modified DCU but someoje decided to make it SEAL by adding velcro for tapes and trident. The rank patch was placed on velcro where it was originally for glint square.

    So ridulicious!

      Seller is a known for adding patches to uniforms and embellishing items.  Buyer beware.

    Can you provide some more insight to this ebay seller, rkhouse, regarding the authenticity of the uniforms he sells? After looking through my collection I've come across 2 uniforms that I had bought from him. The one thing I did notice on his current listings, as well as the 2 I have, is that the uniforms look mint. The size and manufacturers tag's are not creased or faded like you would normally see in a uniform. Not sure if I need to remove these 2 from my collection or not. Thanks

    Trailer, I and few other collectors I know have bought some items from him so you are not alone. I stopped buying from him after I started to see questionable items he put up for sale. Some of his stuff is good and legit, some stuff is not. It's a minefield.

    I stopped looking at his stuff when I started seeing a lot of DCU's with pin back qualification and combat badges. Just too easy to grab a pin back badge and add it to a top and auction it off. Like Merc said, some good stuff, some not so good stuff so you need to watch your step.

    This seller seems to come up with some amazing uniforms but like treesuit you have to question them. Lots of things don't add up on the uniforms and luckily I was warned off of this seller before purchasing anything.

    Also in addition to what has already been said, try looking up and finding any of the original owners of the uniforms, especially the higher ranking ones.

    There was a discussion about this seller and a Chaplain DCU he had for sale over three years back.  The detective work the members did there was enough to convince me that this particular seller's stuff was questionable enough for me not to buy.  Hence my comment of BUYER BEWARE.  Remember, this was back during the time when you could still check what other Ebay members had bought and sold.

    Thanks Arch, I must have missed that post. I know I got two or three DCU's from him and now I need to go and pull them out of the collection. They could be correct and authentic but, to me, they are not tainted and need to be purged. Thanks Clete

    All I am saying is that I have seen some good stuff and some really bad stuff from this seller. After doing my own research and seeing the research done by other collectors, I am just not confident pulling the trigger on his auctions.  That is just me and how I approach things.


    Before throwing out the baby with the bathwater so to speak, I'd get some opinions from other collectors and members here first.  What you all have MAY be totally legitimate.

    What Arch said. Post here and ask for opinions.

    He put pins on original DCUs. Fortunately, it is very easy to remove without ruining them.

    The SF DBDU from link posted here is very questionable. Everything is brand new.
