To paraphrase Holmes . . .
The devil is always in the details, but in the detail here let’s look at the stitch. The evidence photographer was nice enough to center the shot, not on those tantalizing specs or the rather common snowflake pattern mask, but on the homemade (adjusted) olive drab military type hood in the center. He gave us a mega massive megabyte pic to salivate over.
A professional seam runs horizontal and around the bottom, and up vertical, but that gray flannel material surrounding the visor view seems quite handmade. The close-up shows the difference in the professional, that is, machine stitching of the seams on the olive drab and then the black or dark blue hand stitching. It has to be by hand. I can’t imagine any machine is that cackawahtay.
Actually homemade is a bit of a misnomer here. But the hood was adjusted by the addition of the padding around the yes. Do you know what this was originally used for? The Feds were being generous in throwing this out to us.

Since 1990 Gian J. Quasar has investigated a broad range of mysterious subjects, from strange disappearances to serial murders, earning in that time the unique distinction of being likened to “the real life Kolchak.” However, he is much more at home with being called The Quester. “He’s bloody eccentric, an historian with no qualifications who sticks his nose into affairs and gets results.” He is the author of several books, one of which inspired a Resolution in Congress.
