    I'd say neither.
    Maybe Pakistani or Indian, but I'm leaning to Pakistani.
    Pretty sure one of the DPM gurus will be along to show me why I'm wrong, of course, but for now that's me guess.

    Hi Ryan,

    That's an interesting jacket. It is in the British P-68 cut, but I'd be surprised if it is British. The buttons are wrong, the print quality is sub-standard, and I'm pretty sure that's the wrong DPM variant for a P-68.

    I don't think it is Dutch Marines. Certainly not Dutch Army.

    My first thought was 1980s NZ. The tag at the neck and other details make me think it isn't. Is the cloth high polyester percentage?

    The other option is Pakistan, South Korea, and probably others. It could have been made for a Middle Eastern country as they used a lot of this stuff.

    There are a lot of commercial copies of these as well, it looks a lot like the ones we had in the shop but as stated,
    the label is the decider.

    Once again, my money is on Far East copy of Brit Patt 68. The Royal Hong Kong Regiment were issued these in the 1980's as cold weather gear. The colours faded pretty fast, causing many of the more status conscious members to acquire superior Brit issue examples.

    Could you please post an introduction of yourself in our 'Introductions' section? Thanks!
