    Venezuelan Leaf M65

    Here is my Venezuelan field jacket, M65 style, in the early "Leaf" pattern. I haven't been able to find many others, although I have seen a few shirts and trousers in the pattern, sometimes with insignia.

    A new find I figured I'd just attach to this post, a Venezuelan leaf/ERDL utility-style cap. Made by Frazzani Sport. Not sure of era, the teal underside of the brim says 80's to me.
    Has a padded crown for attaching insignia and creating a nice rigid peak.





    This photo was from a VICE documentary of a biker protesting the Venezuelan government, also the only photo I can find of the leaf M65 being worn.




    Hard to find photos of these old Venezuelan leaf uniforms in use, most of the ones I found were from the '92 coup.
























    Enjoy!
