    Jungle Trop trousers...bit of Mustard anyone

    Hi Guys .

    Finally managed to pick up some "Old school" trops.

    The label is totally illegible, so I'm unable to date them.

    Enjoy Wink

    I bet they glint something fierce through NVGs, don't they? Wink
    I have heard the trops are getting popular to wear again -- apparently the 95s are too dark once you're about 15 feet out, or if they get wet. Some classics just never go out of style!

    68 pattern tropical DPM trousers?

    If so, there were always considered better that later versions of the same pattern...

    Hi Ben.

    Yeah, I reckon they light up like a xmas tree through NVG's.... cyclops cyclops

    The 95's look practcally black when wet,whereas these trops keep their colouring, and there does seem to a resurgance of these old school trops.....there are none about in my area...so these were another ebay purchase!!!!

    I am looking for a matching jacket now...which is really as it gives me something to search high and low for!

    Cheers mate Wink

    I believe they are 68 pattern,they were described as being used in the early 70's....

    Good quality piece of kit, and in great condition all considering.

    thanks for looking mate Wink

    Good luck with that one... I have a pair of trop trousers that took me three years to find a matching shirt for. Laughing
    They are out there, though; you just have to do as you said -- look high and low.
