    Absolutely. Even if we were to believe a single soldier accumulated all those qualifications from three foreign nations, Estonians do not wear foreign badges on their uniforms. So there's that Wink Most of those qualifications can be achieved by foreign personnel, but something like the CIB is not. Also, the two Belgian qualification badges are either a new color variant I'm unaware of, or they are fakes. In either case, they would not have been the correct type for when this uniform was issued.

    Aside from the obvious silliness, there is the fact that the uniform is well worn and all the badges are brand new.

    I took more time than necessary on this because, well, ridiculing really bad stuff is kinda fun Wink

    One could easily remove all foreign badges and sell / trade them and still have a decent second type TTskO Estonian blouse with some legit patches..

    I love making fun of badly put together stuff. Especially an Estonian with three CIB awards. He must have been a hellova Rambo type.

    I'd be concerned about the stitch holes. That's a LOT of stitching and that increases the chances that it will be noticeable. Even though this sort of cloth "heals" pretty well (soak in hot water), it's hard to fully eliminate the holes completely. Also, with so much stitching there's an increased chance that the needle broke or pulled some threads in the material. If that happens, there's no hiding it.

    If viewed a a collection of patches, and the intention is to show only the patches, seweing them onto a plain clothg background material would work, but sewing them onto a camo shirt works just as well.

    It all depends whether you choose to view this as a display of diverse patches, or as a faithfully displayed shirt?

    I didn't monitor what it went for but it wasn't super pricey to begin with. Even if it went for under $100, it's still decent for the uniform. Just take off the patches and voila.
