    multicam

    just a quick one for every one. What is your thoughts regarding more and more nations adopting multicam do you think it will kill collecting or will the collecting value be in the style or the rarity of the nation it belongs to it will make labelling very important just wounded what every one thinks the future will hold for collecting camo or am i barking up the wrong tree???

    I'm not a fan of multicam from a collectors point of view but I'm not a serious collector. I generally collect what I like and wear the jackets especially. To me the different camo patterns are what attracts me to items. The good thing is that the other camo patterns won't be current and I'd feel better wearing them, wearing current items would make me feel a Walt.

    When I first got the chance to grab some MTP back in 2010/11,I was very excited, to be honest the excitement died pretty swiftly...maybe it was the same for the old school collectors when P68,P84,S95 stuff started to appear on the surplus market.

    It is all a bit generically samey though Sleep

    There will always be the specialized kit used by SF, and Multi is already starting to show signs of having flaws. Not as horrible as the Army Digital in the US, but still-- it isn't perfect. Since most of us live in countries where military spending is of the highest priority, and competition drives the market, I suspect that there'll still be much to sort through as the years pass.

    I dunno about the Irish kit being made by Lowe, but nothing would surprise me regarding outsourcing military kit to commercial manufacturers, MTP is/was made in China!

    Regarding the reg number of the pattern,again wouldn't be surprised, the S95 style MTP has a separate little tag in all garments with some sort of number code!!

    Could be that the pattern has some sort of MoD "copyright",the pattern is distinct in that it has "DPM" brush strokes in it ( in the vaguest sense)!

    The variables in collecting cammo uniforms.

    Post by fourtycoats on Sat Feb 23, 2013 5:41 pm

    There are many factors which make a particular uniform interesting. Amongst these are:
    1. Cammo pattern.
    2. Design.
    3. construction.
    4. Quality of construction.
    5. Who uses it, country or formation (e.g. general issue or special forces)

    No doubt you can add other factors.
    When I first started collecting uniforms, it was the pattern that most attracted me. Now it is the quality and design. This means that although Multicam is a common pattern, the other factors are still important.
