    Just using a different fabric .

    To me this is a VERY difficult to find DPM jacket .

    Did not see many in NI growing up.

    But thats a world apart mate .

    I seen a green one for sale here last month at my "place" where Tigers are $100 and the guy wanted $350 for it !!!!

    Because it was a "fashion" jacket.

    So US V UK can have a different meaning in a different setting.

    Oh I forgot to mention it was beyond hammered .........beyond completely knackered with holes , stains , fraying ...but it had the collar and that was the dudes selling point.

    With stuff here in the UK like 60 and 68 patt the size seems to dictate the price with the larger ones going for double or treble what the small sizes go for-dont ask me why unless its dammn reenactors who want to wear them.

    Green 60 patt,very common unlike the DPM stuff.

    As for value,and not having a go in any way just the way i see "values" myself is that im in a very low paid job so not so much value but what im prepared or can afford to spend is my value which probably differs greatly to someone else.

    Sorry,all that seems confusing-I apologise.

    I guess there are 2 ways of thinking regarding anything,what one person thinks something is worth can be totally different to what the other is prepared to pay Very Happy

    I have '68 patt smocks and trousers with the two different colours of lining material too. Maybe it is due to different makers ?

    I have seen a few on these and keep getting outbided at around £11 as I bid £10. Just look for tell tail signs on these 68's that flood eBay at the moment.
