    Hello, guys!
    With great interest I used to read about and watch on your Irish camouflage sets.
    But on the last week I suddenly found just the same Irish set in Ukraine, on a local forum for collectioners.
    I think that was a good example of sudden good luck, and I did all my best to get these things.

    Another jacket came a couple days later and was some cheaper.
    It lacks the national flag of Ireland, but it came with a rank tab.

    Nice set, bizarre though that the jacket is twill weave, and the trousers is ribstop??
    syntex is a good manufacturer, quality! fun to see that they use the same pattern as the UK army barracks shirts.:-)) A pity those (the UK uniforms ) are made in China.

    Thank you, Bert353!
    What about your question: "bizarre though that the jacket is twill weave, and the trousers is ribstop??"

    it was CollectinSteve, ADMIN, who wrote:
    "The uniform comes in smooth weave and ripstop. From what I've been told the soldiers don't care too much about mixing and matching the two styles. Apparently it is common for the smooth top and ripstop trousers to be worn together.
    SEYNTEX is a major Belgian uniform and kit maker. I have a shirt dated 2004 that is the same design, but with a partnership of CARRA/SEYNTEX noted

    1/ We don't class the pictured tops as Jackets despite them being worn untucked from the trousers. They are "Operational DPM Shirts".

    2/ The Twill weave has been discontinued since 2010 when the shirt design was changed.The Shirt has been ripstop ever since.

    3/ Soldiers wear whatever is on issue at the time. We don't get to mix and match as such.

    If you look at some of the other threads in this section you can see the material composition of the newer shirts. Smile

    beeing originally from the NL army, we used to call them jackets (binnengevechtsjas) to me that's no problem.

    3) thinking that wenn they were issued, normally such came as a pair, twill top, twill bottom, ribstop top, ribstop bottom, and since usually twill is a heavier weave as ribstop ribstop was meant as summer wear.

    That soldiers don't play to the "rules"we all know :-))

    Thank you, Raptor, for correction!

    I agree, that "Operational DPM Shirt" sounds better for this piece of clothes.

    In Russian/Ukrainian there are also different trends of naming such things: "Китель (Кітель)/куртка" vs "Рубашка/Сорочка".

    Do you call your Irish camouflage "DPM", as the Britts do? Irish pattern DPM?

    I have read somewhere, thet Irish camouflage is based on French army CCE, but modified and in more green colour.

    And, after reading the threads in this section I remember your words "Not PADDYFLAGE. Irish pattern DPM or IP-DPM. Please don't call it Paddyflage. The word Paddy is offensive to Irish people ( It was used by the british as a derogatory form of address back when we weren't friends)".

    I read that and I got it.

    Because we, Ukrainians also have a similar, very-very old, maybe less offensive derogatory form of naming from the side of the Russians - "Hohol" (i.e."Crest" - A sticking tuft of hair on the head (of Zaporizhzhya Cossacks)).
    Hovewer this word was never used as the name for any camouflage.

    In Ukraine some people say that the Ukrainians and the Irish had some similar historical situations and circumstances, so I understand your words very well.
