Take a look at my stripes, chest looks like a tiger arm
Earning your stripes is a phrase that means you’ve proven yourself worthy in battle or some sort of competition.
Also, the military has ranks which are indicated by stripes. His chest looks like a tiger’s arm because he is so decorated with medals and ranks because he’s so much better than the rest.
Or perhaps the stripes on his chest are scars from actual battle meaning that he has actually been through battles and you can see that rather than just ranks on his outfit.
