    Picked this up off eBay for £60 on a whim , turned out to be a good pick. It’s a brand spanning inw XL or XXL 1977 para smock however it appears to have been modified post 1984 with a FFD in a slightly different shade of DPM however it’s also closed with a newey snap. The tag has also been removed very gently and left a very faint ghost. The tag would have been out of date imperial size on issue in the mid 80’s and probably removed to stop confusion.

    Nice colours. The early DPM colourations are much bolder and more varied than the later ones.

    Would the 77 pattern not have been printed on white fabric

    This is a very very early one mate with a very early P60 zipper rather than the NZ later smock zippers.

    The show through print is found on early SAS DPM WW2 cut windoroofs.

    That's pretty damn nice. I've never seen one with that very early zip before.

    The 63 pattern windproof is just stunning.They are normally well used and faded on the rare occasions they turn up.
