Our HBT Cloth is woven by Utexbel a Belgian Mill that has been around since 1929 . It is a reproduction of the 1938 US Army one . A 450gr one and is overdyed each season in the colors of the collection .
The HBT uniform was originally intended to be only for work duty but quickly became the standard dress for all types of informal temperate weather activity, including combat, replacing the cotton khaki uniform. It was also used as an outer layer over wool shirt and trousers in very cold weather locations where more layers were needed.
