The #1105 (1968-1971) Straight Hair TNT version wore a striped suit. It came in 3 versions. The very hard to find pin-striped version is from the first issued dolls. The wider striped version came out late in 1968. Then a even darker version came out after that. The later dolls were "Made in Taiwan" and the earlier dolls were "Made in Japan"
