These cargo pants are constructed in a lightweight cotton poplin, true to the original uniforms of the Vietnam war era. The Maharishi Fine Tailor company provided modifications and customisations to the uniforms of U.S. Advisors of the ARVN; here a tonal free-hand embroidered original dragon is found on the leg of these M51 type pants.
The Original Dragon represents man's spiritual quest for wisdom; the mythological beast seeking to capture the pearl of wisdom that is seen engulfed in flames but within its reach.
Two cargo with button closures

Cotton Poplin · 100% Cotton
1960’s era U.S. Army cotton poplin, reproduced exclusively for Maharishi. This lightweight cloth was introduced when the U.S. were invited to advise in Vietnam, and required a lighter cloth suitable for tropical conditions.
