    Unknown Camouflage Uniform

    Post by nkomo on Sat Oct 03, 2009 10:33 pm

    I have been racking my brain on this one all day and have come up with a blank. This is one of the first foreign camo uniforms I have found within the last while. Any help would be appreciated.

    No tags or markings that I can find. Furthermore, the construction is very crude.

    I'm beginning to think it may be from Bangladesh.

    that looks much more similar to what you have hmm....i've seen similar fabric at the bulk fabric stores though....Bangladesh could be where the fabric came from....make sense as to the quality of it.....

    Arch, I looked into this a few days ago (damned server ate my post!) and I concur that this is Bangladeshi. I have a bunch of pictures and besides the camo the pockets, stiff epaulettes, and use of tiny snaps for the arm badge are consistent with the pics I have.

    Damned nice find you happened upon! Bangladeshi stuff is rarely seen in my experience.
