    Francophone Lizard pants

    Post by drmatz on Fri Mar 11, 2011 5:34 pm

    Hi Guys,

    i've being trying to identify this pants for a while.

    Got this in early 2000's in fort bragg with other lizard items (including an iraqi lizard jacket)

    Pants look legit to me, but i couldn't trace to any other known lizard pattern...

    any help would be strongly appreciated.





    thanks in advance

    I have the same exact trousers! Gilles said it is likely some African contract piece, I think.

    Hello
    The pattern is a French F2 derivative pattern
    I have 2 variant of this pattern
    Existing in TAP56, F1 and various type of garment
    Used by few "Francophone" African country
    I will take pictures and post at the tread I have started : http://iacmc.forumotion.com/t4159-lizard-pattern-used-by-few-francophone-african-country
    Same pattern as this Chad jacket you can see here: http://iacmc.forumotion.com/t3424-chad
    You can see also here the pattern: http://iacmc.forumotion.com/t3481-burkina-faso
    The officier seated at his desk has this pattern
    The other pictures show a recent build of French TAP56 in the good F2 pattern

    Hi Steve, Gilles,

    Thanks for your help.
    also i had a collector who suggested them being iraqi, he know is different from the regular iraqi lizard, but could had come from them, he pointed that because i got the pants in same group as i got the iraqi lizard jacket in fort bragg many years ago. (he asked me not to be identified because of what happened when i posted the pants at ICUS)

    The tag was also a hint, because is written in 2 languages it could be a model for "export" only...

    Anyway it is funny that nobody seems to have jackets or shirts of this pattern, only pants... in any case thank a lot for your help, for now i am keeping as "francophone" pants.

    cheers
