P41 USMC Utilities
In November 1941, the U.S. Marine Corps introduced the sage green HBT (Herringbone Twill) utilities as a fatigue uniform to be worn on work and training duties. However, the Marines immediately took to wearing the comfortable and hard-wearing clothing as their main combat uniform. The early Pacific battles were fought wearing a mix of khakis, Army HBT uniforms and USMC utilities. By 1943, the USMC utilities were the signature uniform of the U.S. Marines. In late 1944, and fatigue cap was designed and the pattern of the utilities was modified, creating the P44 uniform. By summer 1945, both patterns were being worn concurrently. ATF's reproduction USMC utilities are a near perfect recreation of the original. Our HBT cotton was woven using an unissued original sample to match the thread count and color. The cloth is additionally colorfasted and UV protected to prevent rapid fading or turning strange and unpleasant colors due to washing or exposure to sunlight. (Some other reproductions have turned orange or purple).

Insignia? The P41 Utility and P42 Camouflage uniforms were NOT worn with any insignia. Rank was sometimes stenciled or draw on the sleeves, and unit markings were often stenciled on the back or chest. But red chevrons were NEVER worn on combat uniforms- nor are they today.
