The Bulle Black BDU shirt in NYCO, enhanced, is the latest innovation in tactical clothing. Made of wrinkle resistant, machine washable, ripstop nylon cotton, the black BDU shirt is ideal for professional and tactical wear and is tough enough to stand up to rigorous use. It is patterned on the classic, four pocket US BDU shirt, but with the following improvements: Collar - Left side of collar is extended by approximately 10cm and fitted with velcro so that it can be folded away to look like a normal collar, but can also be folded over the neck and held in place on the right side of collar with velcro. This is similar to the system used on the ACU shirt collar. Shirt button - The top button of the shirt is replaced with a 1cm diameter slotted button. Upper chest - A loop of fabric 3cm long and 2.5cm wide is sewn horizontally about 10cm above the chest pocket. Left and right sides of the loop of fabric are sewn down with reinforced stitching. The top and bottom of each loop is not sewn down on the shirt. These loops are designed to accept a 500g radio microphone clipped into them. Above chest pocket on left and right - A band of looped (soft side) velcro which is 2.5cm wide is sewn directly on top of each chest pocket. The velcro is as long as the top edge of the chest pocket, and is ideal for name tapes and team name. Chest pocket - Chest pockets are not expandable, and are sewn flat onto to the shirt. The chest pocket flaps close each pocket with velcro. An internal pen pocket is located in the centre of each chest pocket, and the top of each chest pocket flap has a gap to allow a pen to be pushed directly into the the pen pocket. Reinforced stitch is present on either side of the gap. This button-less design is to reduce pressure points if body armour is to be worn over the shirt. Front - The front of the shirt closes with a zipper which spans the length that would normally be occupied by the buttons on the standard BDU. The left front of the shirt folds over the zipper and is held in place with three velcro closers spread evenly along the length of the zipper. This is also for reducing pressure points on the body if armour is to be worn over the top. Arm - There is one upper arm pocket on each arm. It is set at an angle, and it is the same size as the chest pocket. It is expandable by 1cm towards the rear of the arm. It is closed with two hidden 1cm diameter slotted buttons, and the outer surface of the flap and pocket is covered with looped (soft side) velcro, similar to the velcro on the outside of the ACU arm pockets. The velcro allows patches for unit insignia, blood type and nationality insignia to be easily attached. Lower Arm - There is a pen pocket on the left arm only, similar to the ACU left arm. Elbows - The elbow reinforcement opens with velcro and has reinforced stitching on either side of the opening. This is similar to the ACU elbow. Wrist - The cuffs adjust with velcro, like the ACU cuffs. Hip pockets - The lower pockets on the shirt are expandable, and close with two 1cm diameter slotted buttons which are hidden. Sizes which are available are: Small (up to 36 inch chest), Medium (up to 40 inch chest), Large (up to 43 inch chest), XLarge (up to 48 inch chest), XXLarge (up to 51 inch chest).
Available options are: S , M , L , XL , XXL . Add review

Detailed view of the collar worn up as a mandarin collar. The top button is also shown. The collar can be folded back and held in place with velcro as shown on the left hand side of the subject. When worn open, the collar still resembles a cut down version of the standard BDU shirt collar.
Detailed view of the zipper and the velcro along the central zip. This feature helps to reduce the amount of raised points on the shirt which might cause discomfort if worn under body armour, particularly with hard ceramic plates. Also partly shown are the loops on the upper chest for insertion of a radio mic. Loops are provided on either side for versatile, ambidextrous wear. The loops can also be used to support a mini angle torch, pen, pen knife or similar item. The name tape velcro strips over the pockets are also partially in view.
Detailed view of the arm. On each upper arm, there is a large pocket which is set an an angle for better reach. The front of the pocket is mounted with a large patch of velcro for attaching insignia. This left arm view also shows the pen pocket on the lower arm with space for three pens. Also partly in view is the elbow reinforcement patch which can be opened with velcro for adding foam protection. The front of the shirt shows the square patch of velcro for attaching insignia if required.
