    I have some cold war era uniforms so I guess I'll try and upload them.

    JGSDF Work Uniform Tops used ~1950-1965

    There are two main types of these that I can see. For convenience I just call them "early" and "late" patterns.
    Here is the "early" pattern:

    "late" pattern

    The late pattern seems to either be either an austerity version or an attempt to streamline the appearance.
    The jackets I have are two different sizes so it's hard to judge if the cut changed. What definitely did change was the deletion of the collar closure flap, the decrease in height of the chest pockets, conversion of closure tabs to closure loops under the chest pocket flaps, and a shortening of the sleeve placket.

    Work Uniform Bottoms ~1950-1965

    I have two pairs of these trousers. One is dated 1960, the other is dated 1963. There are variations between them but I have no clue if these are supposed to coincide with the changes made to the tops.

    The main differences are the fact that the pleat in the 1963 cargo pockets is false, it does not actually allow the pocket to expand. in addition, although the 1960 is a size 2 and the 1963 is a size 1, the size 2 actually has a larger waist width even though it is technically smaller on the size chart.
