The Real McCoy…

May 15, 2012

What you see here is a deadstock US Marine issue roll of “Mitchell Camo” – some others call it “Leaf Camo”, nevertheless this is the real deal or “The Real McCoy” as it were. It was used for helmet covers and some various other official US Marine issue gear from WWII thru Vietnam…anyway, back to the point. This is not a reproduction, or a copy. Pretty much any other company that uses this camo for a garment or product using this pattern that’s what you will get, a copy. Those who know, know that you will not find this anywhere else and the fact that it’s on a roll is extremely rare. It’s to be featured on a very limited collaboration with a very special footwear company dropping in Spring 2013…stay tuned for more details on this project. From your source for the true “Real McCoy” – LUDWIG VAN.


  1. Hopefully it will be cop-able online and not just sanctioned to a specific region or select stores.
