    Mystery Swiss TAZ 90 Shirt

    Post by Ghoward2 on Sun Jun 05, 2016 12:27 am

    Hey folks! I bought this off a friend in Estonia and I was curious if anyone knows more about it.

    The pattern seems legit, and the fabric blend is correct but I do not know if it is a reproduction or a legit issued item.

    Let me know! Thanks.

    Legit. There is a long sleeved version of this from the same manufacturer. Maybe yours is customized to be short sleeved? The SWITZERLAND arc should be on the left shoulder, though. See if it was removed or maybe this was made before the arc was introduced.

    Short sleeved shirts have been issued to Swiss troops in Kosovo IIRC.

    There is evidence of a removed patch on the left shoulder. I missed the opportunity to get one of these a few months back because I thought it was a reproduction, I am glad I jumped on this chance to buy one.
