    Loving the jacket ! EVERYBODY was wearing them when I was a student in the early 80's. My son saw a photos of me wearing one and asked me where it was as he wanted it ! Alas is went long ago. I ought to look out for one for him.

    I imagine they are quite rare nowadays, no ?

    Thanks for posting !

    Dear Dave,

    Oh no, these jackets are still very much the rage fashion-wise, at least here in Denmark, so should you want one, again PM me, but they DO sell for around 60 GBP, as fashion items, mind you!

    Hi,in Italy they are still so many, the price is 15-20 euro. I bought this recently, my jacket of military service has been lost due to wear.
    the jacket is used, pants are new.

    Thanks for posting these up Magic, I still have mine from 1985, wore it everywhere,loved it then and now.

    I take it the official designation for these is Roma, I never knew what these were officially classed as this, so that's great after 27 years Wink

    Incidentally I have never seen the trousers on the surplus market back then ,and to this day Exclamation

    There's a couple of jackets on ebay right now - £5 each.

    Saw the trousers back in the day - zippered at the ankles - but not recently.

    Dave I've seen these on ebay, practically giving them away for a fiver, I'm sure I paid a lot more for mine back in 1985 Shocked

    Now you have mentioned the zipped trousers maybe I did see them ,back in the day'

    long long time ago Mate, 1985......where the hell have those years gone Sad

    Ok Guys, so I finally dug mine out from storage,this one has no label, and if I remember, I had an OD hood on it but that's long gone. I hasten to add I was a lot slimmer in 1984/85!!





    And this another one from storage, which has got a very faint shiny label.

    Well guys it's been awhile, but I finally found a pair of the trousers to match the Jacket, and they fit which is a bonus!

    Maybe I'm not looking in the right place, but there appears to be a lack of information regarding Italian OG uniforms,so my question is when were these specific uniforms introduced into service, as all the examples I own or have seen seem to be dated around the mid 80's????
