    M59 reversible

    Post by ripcord on Sat Feb 06, 2016 4:08 pm

    M59 is the first Spanish camouflage uniform . The patterns were used on the subsequent  Model 61 as two separate uniforms cut distinctly different from  M59s.

    Excellent and quite difficult to find just now even in Spain. Worth Spanish collector camo uniforms one.

    Congratulations

    I thought you already had one of these? Well, for sure you do now Smile

    This is a beautiful example! Your top and bottom match very nicely in terms of colors. There are some slight variations in the brown side. My set, IIRC, tends towards brown more than orange.

    Hey Juan, Steve, thanks for your comments,

    Have had a number of M59s over the years and  have traded them all off  for one reason or another..

    Did not count on ever seeing one in conditions such as this one so when it became available , I had to put an M59 back in my collection.

    These uniforms are very beautiful  but I would have hated to have to wear one..
    They are basically torture devices that are still stiff more than 50 years after production.

    I'm certain Spanish soldiers were very happy when M61s were  adopted.
