                 BDU shirt enhanced

The BDU Shirt, which stands for Battle Dress Uniform, was used by the United States Military as the standard combat uniform from the 1980's till the early 2000's, adopted by every military branch. It was the first camouflage (Woodland camo) uniform approved by the U.S. Army since the Vietnam War, where the ERDL camo pattern was in limited use. The BDU soon replaced all earlier camouflage pattern uniforms for all wooded, jungle, and tropical environments, and by 1989, had completely replaced the standard olive drab uniforms that had been used since 1952.

The general design and configuration of the U.S. BDU uniform was similar to that of Vietnam War's jungle fatigues, which were in turn similar in configuration to specialty uniforms worn by U.S. paratroopers during World War II. Most noticeable change was the abolishment the slanted chest pockets from the Vietnam era (Jungle Jacket), that made it easier to reach items in the heat of battle, replaced by vertical ones, mostly for appearance.

Since 1981, changes included the addition and subsequent elimination of buttoned waist adjustment tabs, the size reduction of the collar, and refinements in stitching and fit.
