The Cap’s first pair of boots are the retro, red ‘pirate style’ boots. The second pair appear to be standard WWII US GI type brown leather combat boots, as seen below:

However, note the sole visible in the following image:

WWII US CBI patch, recreated in vector form from the original specs:

Yes, the circles look squashed, but they are not. That’s just due to the automated mock-up software. I assure you the art is mathematically precise.

A long time ago, I saw an awesome shirt decorated with P-40 (Flying Tigers) imagery: shark mouth, nose art, kill markings, roundels, etc. Unfortunately, they are long out of production and hard to find, and expensive.

Other bits and pieces will soon follow. I just finished the art for the stencilled data on the propellor blade. That should be approved in a few days. A minor note: the images you see above are composites; mock-ups generated automatically by computer. The art is slightly distorted via this process. I assure you that the circles are mathematically perfect.
