From what I have been told of it's provenance, it is more likely to be a contemporary personal purchase from a contractor who was making the much loved smocks after they became a service issue item.
Note the label reads Dennison the correct spelling of Major Dennison who invented this pattern smock, rather than the normal Army mis-spelling Denison.

I have a similar smock made by Bernard Uniforms LTD. NSN 8415-99-130-5882.
I've always wondered whether this was a ''DPM smock'' or a ''Pattern 1984''. What units were issued with this type smock and what pattern DPM is it?
I'm assuming your smock has all the stuff that's on the Pattern 1984; velcro to cuffs, drawstrings to waist and bottom and a pencil pocket on the right shoulder?

Apparently, Imperial Stormtroopers of the Galactic Empire prefer those short magazines in their blasters, too. ;-)
