I got this outfit in February of 2010, from a grey market Singapore seller on eBay. My outfit seems to be identical to the ones others have featured - same patches, same details, except mine did not come with shoes. It did come with plain white socks - I don't know if authentic versions had little green flags on the sides or not.
I love the outfit - I was surprised that AG had used decals on the vest, but they're sturdily applied even on my knockoff and they have nice detail. As a former Scout, I heartily approve this outfit.
I do want to add something for new buyers though:
The shirt on mine is tagged "Pleasant Company," even though I know I bought it on the grey market. The seller admitted that she buys her stuff from a factory that is still producing these retired outfits. I think the quality is very good (the stitching is a little crude, but serviceable), and I am more than satisfied, BUT if authenticity is important to you, be VERY careful about who you buy from on eBay.
