4chan /k/ here.

I made pic related earlier last week. I have a vectorized version available as well.

I know plenty of OPERATORS love the Rhodesian camo pattern, but it is nearly impossible to find a reputable company to get reproductions from, and originals are priced so high that they cannot/should not be worn for OPERATING.

>$500 short sleeve bush shirts

I mainly wanted to do historical reproductions using similar fabric and cut as the originals, but many anons have expressed interest in a "modern" version using modern materials and cuts as well.

I have set up a poll to determine what uniform cut(s) will be manufactured:

www.surveymonkey.com/s/L7YJP2F

Both historical choices and modern choices are available. The choices are based on things posted in the original thread on 4chan.org/k/:
http://boards.4chan.org/k/res/15765621

I'm hoping that there will be enough interest so that we can start a production run. From what I can gather, we need at least 300 people before some Chinese/other company would be willing to do a run, so spread the word to anyone else that might be interested.

Thanks for all the interest! I haven't had much time until now, so here's the update:

171 people have responded to the form so far.

GAThrawn (a user on 4chan's /k/)has decided to contact several companies in order to get a quote. Unfortunately, as of now, none have called back yet.

If you have a company in mind, please list it here. They might be worth a shot at contacting.

So far, we've tried to contact:
>Duluth Pack
>TMC (Chinese company of last resort for the BDU's and boonie hats; experience manufacturing clothing and tactical gear for aisoft, including BDU's. Seems pretty good other than being located in China)
>9mode(Vietnamese company of last resort for the bush shirts)
>Custom Uniform Company (Small business; made uniforms for Rose Parade)

>>8781
Unfortunately, there was not enough support for the short shorts, so it would have been way to expensive to produce them.

>>8774
We've largely decided on cotton ripstop because it is cheap, lightweight, and durable.

Of course, it may still be up for discussion.

>>8771
We're shooting for $50 for the BDU set if that helps.
>> No. 8866 ID: b93bdd
Also OP, I think you would do very well selling this stuff through the Shotgun News. They are loaded up with memrobilia collection stuff. I just picked up some original 'Nam greens (authentic, not repro) from there myself. Check it out. And btw, I would be interested in a set of BDU's....

Here's the most recent update.

We've hit over 300 replies to the form.

The average amount of each item per person is:
>BDU sets: 0.996677741
>Boonie hats: 0.901993355
>Bush shirts: 1.03986711

The rough average for all items is 1, so we can ask manufacturers for a quote of exactly the amount of replies.

As for contacting companies, I've contacted some Chinese companies on Alibaba.

They seem capable of making the uniforms, but they want a copy of the pattern, which I'm a little reluctant to give to them.


>CHINESE COMPANIES ARE JUST ANOTHER OPTION! WE WILL LIKELY CONSIDER THEM AS A LAST RESORT!!!!

GAThrawn has managed to get a reply back from Atlanco in Georgia, US.

We are still awaiting more info from them, but they seem willing to help us out.

Also on the list is Varusteleka, a Finnish company. GAThrawn has only received an automated email from them, so we're also awaiting their response.

I would strongly suggest taking the ratios of sizes to order quantity and ordering appropriate extras for each size, if they merit it. I'm on the fence about going in up front, but if the gear seems solid after the purchase comes through, I'd probably pay a little extra to pick up a set.

I imagine there are others with the same idea.

So we have over 476 responses to the form so far.

We have gotten responses back mostly from Custom Uniform Company.

They are unable to print fabric, so we have to contact a fabric printing business. I've contacted several so far for a quote, but it's the weekend so responses could take some time.

If anyone has any suggestions for a company to use, please post.

We have gotten the farthest with a fabric printing company known as "Duro Textiles". They apparently also make fabric for the military.

I have scheduled a phone call with them tomorrow morning at 8-9AM Pacific Time.
>> No. 9063 ID: 1e54ee
I spoke to Duro textiles this morning. We are expecting a quote by next Monday.

I have recieved a quote from Bennettsville Printing as well.

They want $6.50/yard for 50/50 NYCO ripstop and $6.10/yard for 50/50 NYCO twill.

567 people have responded so far.

Here's what I've worked out for the price of fabric.

This is without factoring in labor for assembling the uniforms and shipping and assuming we have 600 people who all pay, and we use the Bennetsville company.

See my image for full math shown.

Basically, BDU's will use 2700 yards of fabric. This is worth $17550 for all BDU's.

1 BDU uses $29.25 worth of fabric.

For all items (BDU set, boonie hat, bush shirt), they all use $39000 worth of fabric.

One of every item uses $65 worth of fabric.

This is not factoring in shipping and labor for assembling the items.

Sorry for the long wait. I've been very busy. We have gotten the interest of Tiger Stripe Products. I just finished the latest version of the pattern to Tiger Stripe Products' specifications.

>It's too big to post here or on 4chan, even on the high-res board. Sorry.

We have gotten the following quotes/price info:
Bennetsville Printing Company
>$6.10/yard 50/50 NYCO Twill
>$6ยท50/yard 50/50 NYCO Ripstop
>Cannot manufacture items

Duro Textiles
>$7.45/yard 50/50 NYCO Twil
>$7.45/yard 50/50 NYCO Ripstop
>$102/BDU Set (jacket and pants) for manufacturing

Tiger Stripe Products
>No price data yet for fabric or manufacturing
>They want us to pay $500/printing screen (pattern needs 3 screens so that's $1500 initially)
>and $100 for each printout to proof colors


Based on this info, I am thinking that we shoulf have Bennetsville print the fabric and have Tiger Stripe Products manufacture our stuff.

As of last week, I have created the 4th version of the pattern.

This is as accurate as we're ever going to get from a reconstruction.

The absolute colors were extracted from some licensed images from the Imperial War Museum.

I've fixed the pattern's shapes based on some new source material I found as well.

The first items to be made from this pattern will be announced soon.

We will not be making the official bush shirt, boonie hat, or BDU set first, but the small item we will make was historically used as well as extremely easy to make, so we expect to have a production quote for it later next week.

I'll talk more about it later since my partner wants it to be a surprise.

Sales from this will also help offset some costs of the production run for the official items.

[Forewarning, this post is kinda off topic]

I really want to get my dad a pair of the rugby shorts as a fathers day present as he long ago wore out his own. When I got one of the slotting floppies shirts and wore it without mentioning it he and my mum had a good chuckle when they realised I had a shirt mentioning Rhodesia on.

Picture is my dad being INTAF, not saying which one. Basically, riding around visiting and managing protected villages with an FAL and an UZI, distributing anti-terrorist propaganda.

Cool stuff, he's kept a lot of the pamphlets and tons of film which we aim to digitise. I want him to do memoirs because he had a really crazy career, culminating in driving himself to a hospital my mum worked at in a borrowed tractor, after going over a landmine in a land rover and the ambulance getting lost. I have a bunch of scans of interesting war/immigration related documents they kept when they left the country, including their war bonds etc, which I'll post if anyone is interested.

We both find the internet's masturbation over Rhodesia fascinating in a weird way, which is why I rarely post about it. Particularly Americans given the fact along with Canada the UK and Australia you all basically fucked the place due to sanctions. Which still pisses off my dad given each country has its own, far worse track record of treatment for natives, and having now worked as a civil servant in the UK and rubbed shoulders with some of the people who made decisions about his country, was horrified to learn how little they really knew about it. (People who worked in the advisory for sanctions believing Rhodesia had Apartheid :/)

Hi! A few matters.

1. Was the pattern ever produced and in what fabric?

2. Was any clothing ever produced? If not, Atlanco, which produces decent quality 100% cotton rip-stop BDUs may be an option. See US Cavalry catalog. I have owned several pairs and they hold up well enough.

3. I own some of the Kamabee Keep stuff and, while I am thankful for their effort, what I have seen posted here looks much better.

4. Owning the above, I would drop the 50/50 stuff and go with 100% cotton ripstop.

5. Nice to see others with some interest. Thank you for your efforts.

Happy New Year!

Got my shirt day before yesterday. It had been stuck in pre-shipment for a while but it did come with the two extra patches they had promised. I went for the 1/4 zip shirt because it's basically the Rothco 1/4 zip but with the Rhodie camo. Build quality is good and i think it'll be a solid base/mid layer for summer inna woods.

Thanks. I'll give them some more time before I bug them again. Did your shipstation email ever update or did the package just show up?

I know they are shipping in the order in which it was placed, but I get nervous when I see an order stuck in a preshipment phase. So, good to know.

Mine had the label created for about a week before it shipped. They bring huge batches from the week to USPS so that's why it's sitting there. Ivan is pretty responsive so you could drop him a line if you get nervous.

Still waiting. It's been over a month and no change in status. Also no email response from Ivan.

I backed this project from the start, I patiently waited for 4 years.

Today after being informed my order was to ship 2 months ago I finally got a response from Ivan. I had emailed and called for 6 weeks hopefully trying to get a response. So I had no choice but to contact my bank. Here is the response I got.

"I was under the impression we had notified all our customers involved in Rhodie investigations. I have nothing I can say that will make you feel better, but my heart hit the floor when I discovered you were not informed.

As I hope you can understand, we are not in the business of stealing from our customers, but the amount of variables and chaos has basically brought it to that for you.

Here is what is going on.

1. Atlantco, the people who constructed the BDUs, discovered 2 weeks before the end of production, that even with our increased safety margins, they ran out of fabric for the boonie hats. Cutting us short 115 Boonie hats. We dictated who got boonie hats by shipping orders that were Boonie only, then shipping the orders involving boonie hats chronologically. So the last 115 orders for boonies get their money back instead.

The tricky part of refunding customers, is that the payment processor used at the time is now defunct and we can no longer use them to process refunds. The most timely and organized method we had was putting the $19.99 into your kstore account as a temporary form of a refund. This is not us telling you "worry not you can still spend money on us", but the best way to give you some form of your money back while we work out a check or paypal money.

2. We do not have your UBAC in size 2XL-Reg. Ethier Atlantco made a order mistake, or your UBAC was mispacked. Part of what we have been working on, is clearing through Rhodie Returns and order corrections to recover your UBAC in this size to send to you. This is what we have been waiting on currently, but have still not found anything. We have UBACs in 2XL-LONG that I can send instead. Otherwise I can refund you along with the boonie hat.

About the Boonie and UBAC. Along with the refund, I want to offer prototype Rhodie fabric in the amount needed to make these items for free. This is optional, but you might be able to have someone else create those items (or other items) for you with the fabric.

Another thing I would like to mention without insulting you as much as possible is that there is a good chance there might be a 2nd run of Rhodie with the safety margins tripled, and Atlantco whipped five times as hard. So you have options if you are still interested in eventually acquiring these items.


Here's what happens next.

1. I find out if you want a check or paypal money.
2. I find out if you want to replace your UBAC 2XL-reg with a 2XL-Long
3. I find out if you want the prototype fabric
4. I send out everything to you with your XL-Reg Pants.

We made the mistake of underestimating the work load 450 pre-orders would be on two people.
The end goal is trying to get as many Rhodie items of quality into your hands as possible. If you do not go with the 2XL-LONG ubac, I will keep it on the investigation board, so that if we do find it, I can contact you to see if you still want it.

If there is any service I can add, or any more information on what happened I can fill you in on, please ask."

I know no one really cares at this moment but, I did want to say that Ivan did correspond with me and we have reached a solution.

Ivan if you read this, I will post pics ASAP... my only question is, how neckbeard /k/ommando should I go?

Sorry if this is an unacceptable post necro, but is there any chance of this still happening? I can't find this pattern anywhere.

It's not exactly Rhodesian but there is a German company that sells airsofter stuff that contracted a while back to have a kinda-sort-Rhodesian-ish pattern made.

https://www.begadi.com/be-x-fieldjacket-opfor.html

What they've currently got left of that batch is 65-35 NYCO BDUs in a few different sizes.

I don't work for them, can't speak for the quality, and suspect shipping from Germany to North America might cost quite a bit.

But if you've got to have Rhodie camo, it's the only thing going right now that looks anywhere close to the real thing.

Trident Military used to sell "Rhodesian" (actually a somewhat similar looking Pakistani milsurp pattern) camo but they ran out of it years ago.

That looks like it needs a good break in and a couple heavy washes

Ah, I just did a bit more digging.

SARCO, of all people, claims to have some surplus uniforms in a similar pattern in stock, and even printed fabric by the yard:

Once again, I do not work for this company, and know nothing about the quality, but at the very least they seem to be offering Rhodie-style patrol caps with the flap in the back to keep the sun off the back of your neck.

The khaki base in these pictures looks quite a bit darker and yellower than in the Begadi product, but that could be the lighting. The single picture of the fabric they're selling makes it look much lighter and less saturated, almost off-white or pale grey.
