    3.Commerical Version

    Most common uniform on ebay or collectors.
    There are Several varients out there and NO NSN numbers or manufacturer's name  just size stamp and blank white label for owner's name and unit.
    if you visit japan someday, you can purchase new one and any size at Military store.(of course you need some japanese yen for that Very Happy )
    even JSDF members wearing this uniform frequently but still this is commercial piece. although colors and stitchings are pretty decent.

    Very good information to have! Thanks for taking the time to document the labels. If there's anything that can be seen from a photo of the jacket or trousers, it would be good to know because many eBay sellers don't bother showing pictures of the labels.
