    Arch and Steven told me about this one a while back. They made a copy in the 80's. I couldn't find my French one to compare it to at the time, but have since.. This one is very poorly made compared to the French one. Variations are:
    Lower pockets on this one snap shut, the real one buttons, this one lacks the wind flap, thinner material, zippers are plastic, not brass like my French one. Even the ties are thinner. It has seen some use and came from the thrift store in a part of town called "Little Somolia". It seems to be a poly-cotton blend, not cotton. Pattern isn't as crisp as the French one either. I'll try to get a comparison shot, but it'll have to wait for a sunny day.

    Gilles, here's mine, judging by your excellent photo's I would assume this one is originally from Cameroon?. The poppers are smooth not the pebble finish, and the zippers have Rose stamped on them, does this sound similar to your examples.Hopefully the photos will demonstrate this Jacket in more detail Wink

    And finally top the African jacket, bottom TAP47 to demonstrate pattern difference.
