    Unknown OD Combat Uniform - Came with Vietnam War 82nd Airborne Patched OG-107's.

    Does anyone know what this uniform is?  I thought it could be a CISO item at first, but I don't think it's Vietnam era anymore since the little "L" tags appear to be synthetic.  The thread used throughout the garment is synthetic or is a blend of cotton and synthetic. It actually is a large sized uniform.  Based on the waist adjustment system I think it's from a country with ties to the British Commonwealth, or at least a British-influenced nation.  




    This blank tag was found behind the collar.  


    Synthetic tag and hanging loop:


    Waist belt loops on back of jacket:




    I think it's been modified considering there's elastic by the ankle cuffs on the pants while you can see a drawstring hole at those cuffs.  


    Other interesting features include 2 different button types on the jacket (brown) and on the pants (olive).  
    Jacket:


    Pants:


    The pants have 2 waist adjustment tabs on either side and they are adjusted using a buckle.  


    I've searched all the pockets and could not find anything.  If it helps, I got it from this auction http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vietnam-War-Jungle-Fatigues-pants-JACKET-SHIRTS-SPECIAL-FORCES-AIRBORNE-/221894573949 and it came with these two 82nd Airborne Division OG-107's that are actually closer to medium size.
