In the words of Mister Freedom:
"The pattern of the MF® SNIPES is inspired by the earliest model of US Army full button front uniform shirt.
Identified as Specs “No. 8-26C Shirt, Flannel, Olive-Drab, Coat Style” by the Quartermaster Corps, it was introduced sometime in 1933 and issued to US Army and Air Corps personnel and FDR’sCCC enrollees alike. This new uniform shirt pattern was deemed “Coat Style”, marking a practical departure from its predecessor, the mustard color pullover wool shirt commonly associated with WW1 Doughboys.
The overall design was borrowed from civilian workwear, back when the making of workwear garments bordered on fancy tailoring prowess. This is definitely an intricate pattern by today’s utilitarian clothing standards"
