    Portuguese? vertical lizard, VERY GREEN!

    Post by CamoDeafie on Tue Feb 15, 2011 3:23 am

    bro picked these up for me at Value Village since he knows I like odd camos....lol
    the interestin thing is there are no ink stamps ANYWHERE i could find...and all have same brown disc buttons; with same X stitching on them...same thread on all of the stitching I could see...quite DIFFERENT leg sizes....the store didnt have a 2nd jacket according to my brother...so what did he get for me, Portuguese vertical lizard uniform pieces?
    jacket; note two shoulder reinforcements, ellipical elbow reinforcements, short collar?

    inside of jacket; note reddish brown string for cinching waist; and brown buttons

    tag showing red "2"

    pants #1

    #1's back

    #1's crotch area, note cheap stitching

    Pants #2; note reinforced knees; but otherwise same pattern as #1

    #2's knee reinforcements; note HBT material

    #2's crotch area, reinforced with a purplish-gray material, has tag "1" in red on white tab

    back of #2 with buttons showing;

    forgot one more pic of all 3 together lol; notice the HUGE difference in leg lengths between #1 and #2 pants

    Looks like a very early Portuguese pattern given the knee reinforcing

    It would make a cool 70's mercenary in Africa display. Those guys loved this pattern.
