    Need help on this one

    Post by Deepdown on Mon Sep 09, 2013 7:48 am

    Picked this up at a used-clothing store and have no idea from what country it is. Anyone know this pattern?

    It has oval-shaped elbow pads. All the pockets, cuffs and front closure use buttons.



    Inside-out. Has internal pockets which close with buttons.



    Ink stamp. A bit faded.

    Looks like an eastern block (Soviet? Russian?) stamp inside...can't make out any specific details on it though.

    Looks like a Early Russian Federation TTsKO camo pattern. It could be late Soviet also I cant make out the date from the ink stamp.

    Ukraine. They come in lots and lots of color variations when used because of poor quality dyes. Some look brown, but they started out green!

    Their uniforms come in two basic types. There's a cotton type that is similar to Soviet era and a thin polyester type that is (I think) more recent).

    Gentlemen, thank you for the ID, I wouldn't have been able to figure out that it was Ukranian. Your help is appreciated :-)

    This pattern called "Butane" or "Oaklet". Used in Air Forses, infantry of Fleet, paratroopers and special forses.
