    Post by Easy Gee on Tue Feb 01, 2011 11:56 am

    Hi Guys.

    These 68 Pattern Trousers ,are the later versions ,and more than likely produced around '75,if my research is correct,the Pattern on these particular trousers are a transitional pattern between the 68 and 85's. Unofficially classed as 75 pattern.

    Well that's according to my extensive research Razz

    Anyway enjoy,hope you like 'em!

    I have never seen trousers like these before. But I've always been a fan of P68 DPM!

    Very cool, I love seeing all your topics about different variations of DPM. There is just so many variations!

    What exactly is the reason that the older Brit pants have the button down belt loops? I havent ever been able to think of why

    Shane, I've been into Brit kit hardcore for 4 years now, and have yet (despite research) to find out exactly why button down belt loops were used.

    If I remember correctly, older designs of British combat clothing had this feature, (their inclusion may just be a carry-over from older issue items) but their exact purpose/function has escaped me. Laughing

    Thanks,this is turning out to be a labour of love, every pair I seem to pick up,has a slightly differnt pattern,I am determined to classify these types,I found out today that DPM's made in Northern Ireland ,have a distinct differnce in the Brown hue's.....so now I'm gonna have to dig through the whole lot and try and work out which ones were made in Ni Laughing


    As far as I can tell,after some more research!!!...button down belt loops,are a feature of 66 pattern onwards-up until S95's.

    The only reason I could find was ,so these trousers could be worn with sable belts,and Webbing belts...this still don't make sense,...the thing I can think of is maybe the belt buckles were too wide,to fit through the belt loops,hence the button off feature.....this is based on vauge references,and my own British sense of Logic Laughing


    Thanks again mate Wink

    I don't see brushes.

    I think it is 60 pattern, not 68.

    Its 68, the P60 stuff has groin reinforcements (if I remember rightly) and also has a white label.

    Also, its difficult to identify P60 and P68 stuff by the Camo as they both variate.

    In Northern Ireland we always called the top pair of DPMs summer pattern as its rich and bright.
    I the UK during winter that really clashes with farmland .

    Like I said, hard to to tell the difference, however they're not P60.

    These are my P60 trousers, Knee Reinforcements and a white White Label.

    Tommo,depressingly i think Duncan is referring to the non existant type of DPM pattern/colour as being 60 patt and not the strides themselfs Rolling Eyes

    'Collectors patterns'

    As Oggy stated on the F80 Facebook Page, most of the designations for DPM are unofficial and are what collectors brand them.

    As regards to my P60 DPM Trousers, they are a heavier material and are a lot thicker than the P68 ones, they are in everyway identical to my P60 Green ones except in DPM.

    The P60 describes the design and features of the garment itself and has nothing whatsoever to do with the cammo type,colour etc.
