    Possible South/Central American Noodle Trousers

    Post by TennoHeikaNate on Wed May 18, 2016 3:44 am









    I acquired this pair of Noodle trousers on ebay several months back, and was told they were Guatemalan army Noodle camo trousers. I also learned however that Peru used Noodle as well for their Civil Guard, however I haven't been able to find good examples of the Peruvian ones, or really the Guatemalan ones for that matter either in photos or private collections.

    The cut is very simple, comprising of two outer patch hand pockets and a single open rear pocket. No reinforced knees, butt, no waist adjusters, no ankle adjusters, or anything beyond that. The only thing is a tiny size tag outside under the front right belt loop you can barely see in the picture, no other tags or markings. The button appears to be BDU style.
    It doesn't appear to match any South Korean style I've seen.
    Any input or direction is appreciated, thanks!

    i have the guatemalan set... here are some pics, my pants have 4 pockets. note the back pockets were refurbished using the spot material. Most my guatemalan sets came from same source.
    I've never seeing an actual peruvian noodle, but i do have a few pics of the peruvian uniform in use.

    cheers

    Interesting, the cut of mine is very similar to yours apart from the additional pockets yours' has. Do you think there could have been different cuts, or maybe yours had pockets added on?
    I can't find any evidence of pockets being removed from mine.
    If you could, I'd appreciate it you could post the Peruvian pics if you can.
    So far it's still pointing towards Guatemala.

    Thanks!
