    I think this item was used by North Vietnam forces and maybe Vietcong.

    I've got something similar... Also made from WW2 parachute material. It has a orange lining.







    Here is mine

    Crazy!

    I have a different style shirt, but the same camo, with the same badges (one on each arm). Even have one rank badge with arabic writing on it. My assumption is that it is Saudi.

    This is the most rare cammo in the world. There are only 2 known examples in existence. One is your's and one is mine and my one is available for trade.

    What is this DPM variant? It kinda looks like a Pakistani suit worn in Somalia.

    I have never discovered where it was from. My suit is Btitish made and my guess is that it was intended for a middle east state.

    Did your shirt has a label?

    I'll try to take some pictures this weekend. I don't think it is the same exact piece, only that the pattern looks very similar. No markings in mine at all. I bought it from someone who got it from a US soldier who was in Somalia. I think I have some pictures of Pakistanis in such a uniform at the time.

    Here is the shirt

    Here are the trousers

    No labels in either but some numbers written on the inside of the shirt which make no sense 9223 56

    I found a picture of an apparently identical set in my Iraq folder. The pic I have is from eBay and the file is time stamped 2007. Whether this is Iraqi or not, I can not say, however the seller must have identified it as such or I would have put it elsewhere Very Happy

    My set doesn't look exactly like this pattern, but I'll take some pics of it anyway for comparison.

    I may be wrong but this camo pattern looks like Rhodesian overdyed with brown altho the cut of the garments is differant. Zimbabwe maybe

    My friend has an identical set of this which he got off a friend who was in some south african or rhodesian conflict (I think South African though)

    The 2 color blue DPM uniform looks like a recent contract Kuwait police uniform. It is consistent with their design, including the narrow strips of velcro. I just sold an older issue type that was made out of smooth cotton. I thought it might be Yemeni, but someone on this forum posted a picture of a hat which has a Kuwait police badge embroidered into it.
