    Not another lizard jacket!

    Post by koalorka on Tue Apr 26, 2011 8:07 pm

    I only know that it's not the EOTAC lizard type. The cut/features are different and so is the print.



    The black buttons would point towards some commercial knock-off, but I'm open to ideas.

    Thanks!

    Assume commercial unless Giles tells you otherwise Very Happy

    What does the label say?

    I will take some detailed pictures of it when in my possession in a day or two. Stay tuned.

    But if Vonstuck hasn't seen one, I'm in trouble.. Shocked

    And here it is:







    And compared to a French TAP47/56 F2 pattern:



    It's made out of a very dense and rigid HBT material, pretty coarse, the label unfortunately is faded beyond recognition, but it follows most of the features of a TAP56 smock, with the exception of the buttons around the collar for attaching a hood.

    The zippers are of an old style and labeled "ailêe".

    Most unique of course is the lizard print itself, it has some unique elements. I'm puzzled.

    Suggestions and comments welcome.
