    I've seen a lot of Italian stuff made up to look like it was used by WW2 Germans. Meant to fool fools.

    Oh so have I, eBay is full of them. I'm not saying that the jacket I have was used by the Germans but at one time it did have a shoulder patch be it put there by someone or the minuet chance it was used in WWII. I just want to try to find the age of the jacket itself.

    If it looks anything like the stuff in this thread, excepting the last pic from Philip, it's for sure post war. The WW2 stuff doesn't look anything like the post war stuff.

    Here's mine anyone know the year or era it was made in? There's no stamps or tags.

    Standard issue postwar jacket. I don't think it is really possible to narrow down the production dates too closely. I've had ones with 1960s and 1970s stamps and I couldn't see a difference between them.

    What's the deal with the two trousers that have only a single pocket on the front thigh? I don't think I've seen that before.

    Steve

    Sorry for the late reply Steve, the pockets where like that when i bought the sets , my guess is that they where meant to look like WWII in a way?

    That makes sense. There's so much of the Italian stuff around I don't shed a tear when I see someone butcher a set to make it look like a horrible copy of a WW2 item. But when I see butchered 1950s BGS stuff... I weep.

    "Just want to get a collection of pics or informantion in this thread on the different patterns and colours as well as cuts of this uniform. Please add any photos of your uniforms or pics you have found"

    No worries Mate, here is a set in my collection. The jacket/hood and trousers are completely unissued, so hopefully the colours and hues are representative of these garments prior to a lot of usage and washing.I believe this set is 50's/60's, but I am not 100% certain of this aspect.


    The hood has a interesting "pink" colour on the interior.

    This is a really interesting set! The pattern looks the same as one of my early shelter halves. What does the material feel like? Is it light like the Army uniforms, or thicker like BSM?

    The camouflage pattern and fabrics material is identical than the jacket of Flecktarn92 or my jacket 1b: http://vonstuckcamouflage.free.fr/italy.php
