    M62 RVL camo

    Post by Stepi on Sat Aug 23, 2014 6:14 am

    And let's keep those panties soaking, here's another one-of-a-kind treasure from my cove: tailor made RVL (Border Guard) M62 camo uniform! I've heard that back in the day this was quite a common practice, border guard personell and instructors had tailors make them M62 camo in the M65 (wool and service dress) cut, like the jacket here: two chest pockets, short and tight hem. You can see where the border guard wings were stitched on the chest, also rank insignia has been removed from the epaulettes.

    The trousers on the other hand are even more special, tailor made too but the cut is a totally new design (at least I have never seen anything else like them). The main idea seems to be that the waist is high enough and shaped so that these will stay up very securely even without belt or suspenders (a fantastic feature for anyone carrying a heavy rucksack or bergen). The cargo pockets appear to have been added later, they are made in the M65/M62 style but with bellows on the sides, the fabric is probably civilian, it has a funky Jigsaw-DPM feel.
