    The first one I think is from Finland or Norway , it has been misidentified since they first started offering them .

    Yes, and unless they have fixed this FUBAR you will get some pretty abused Belgian stuff in either Brush or Jigsaw. That's what I got when I ordered instead of the Finnish stuff that was pictured and described Sad I spoke with a few people at SG about fixing the problem and the last guy I talked with clearly saw that there was a major problem. He said they were going to remove the links on their website until they could get it sorted out.

    Oh what a joke! I see that SG added "Camo Pattern may vary slightly". If by "slightly" they mean like getting a fish sandwitch when you ordered a cheeseburger... well then I they are accurately describing things.

    I'll be interested to see what shows up on your end Flecktarn92!

    well I did get them and they are the original 1958 jigsaw pattern pants in very good condition. I'm going to contact them and see what they are willing to do. I don't plan on returning the pants but may want to tell them off a bit being that there is a sale for the same Belgian pants for only 15 dollars. Smile

    these people need to get their heads out of their you know whats. I just called them and told them they have the wrong picture and that the price for these pants are different. I tried to tell them that the pattern is completely different than shown and they kept telling me that they would offer me a cheaper price if I returned the Belgian pants, they would then send me back the same pants but for 5 dollars cheaper and I may not get the 1958 version. I guess from now on im going to call them prior to buying and making sure the picture is as shown. Still wanted those pants shown in listing one though. oh well Mad

    The upside of this for me was they sent me a very rare variant Belgian Brush 56 jacket in good condition instead of the Finnish type pictured. The trousers they sent me were brutalized and I sent them back.

    What sucks about this is I got some sort of manager on the line several months ago and they said they would fix this. Since they've been selling Belgian stuff on and off for many years you'd think it wouldn't be a big deal to pull the descriptions and pictures from the last time they offered the stuff directly. But here we are, months later, and a ridiculous disclaimer that is completely inappropriate.

    I've been purchasing from SG for 20 years and this is definitely the worst FUBAR they've done so far.
