    The tiger stripe appears to be commercial to me. Designer label, snaps, and the very odd plastic clips on the pockets are very unmilitary to me.

    For the OD cap I don't think I've ever seen a rank? badge like that before. Not Norwegian as far as I can tell.

    No idea what the camo hat might be. Not South African though.

    Neither a Norwegian nor a Danish pattern of cap that I have ever seen.

    There's something about that rank badge that I recognize in the back of my head. I think it is South American of some sort. Lots of OD uniforms used by those nations. My guess is the hat is Colombian, but that is a guess.

    The brushstroke jacket is likely commercial, though it's possibly they were made for an African nation or guerilla group. There's a great variety of these jackets. I've seen this specific type before.

    The Egyptian shirt is legit. Officers often had tailor made uniforms, always "Rocks" side out.

    The Hungarian shirt is made by FENOX and is for Hungarian civilian guards (FBÖ) providing security for military installations.

    Brushstroke is very nice but certain it is commercial.

    Snaps basically confirms it. Google it..

    The olive cap is not European . Probably South American

    I do not recognize rank insignia, which of course is the key.

    Some people think these were cheap junk made for some impoverished African country or rebel group. However, I've never seen anybody able to confirm it so commercial is a safe bet until proven otherwise. I had 3 or 4 of these in different forms, one of them quite old and in a mustard color with 1950s Belgian buttons on it. I still have one kicking around and I'm not keeping that one either. Shows how much faith I have that they are anything other than commercial Wink

    Funny, this pattern is in every Slovak shop with work clothes. It is probably one of the most common patterns worn here among civilians.

    Yeah, it's not too hard to get recently. The use of the pattern goes back a long time and consists of at least:

    1. Hat
    2. Airborne/Border Guard style uniform
    3. Shirt
    4. Coveralls
    5. Winter coat

    There might be other items, however that's all I am familiar with. I have one sample of each.
