    Oz?

    --No Idea what this *really* is. Searched all forms of Australian Camo, and got no solid hits. Thinking that is is commercial:


    However, there's this tag:



    I know, here in the States, we have all kinds of phony stuff. Actually, some of it is shamefully so. This is tasteful, whatever it is, but a line for an "Army Number" is just weird. Googling "Commando Australia" just fetches images of some big dude, who did a workout video.

    This is a closeup of fabric/ pattern:


    And, the only other "detail" (smokes pocket, or pen pocket, or something, on the sleeve).:



    Thanks to anyone who can tell me what it is.

    Commercial. Constructed in the Vietnam-era 'Pixie' shirt cut. The 'Pixie' shirts were much sought after immediately after Vietnam and I would date this for the 80's Australian hunters/shooters market.

    Very helpful. Thank you. I've held on to this for *years* wondering.
