    Started out not knowing a darned thing about this shirt and thanks to two friendly members, I was able to ascertain that I have a Spanish M-67 shirt nicknamed "garbanzo" because of the rough similarity in color to the famous bean.

    This got me to thinking: in British-Mandate Palestine and for several decades afterwards, khaki was the uniform of both military and civilians alike, yet to my knowledge nobody ever referred to it as "hummus".

    Interestingly enough; "garbanzo" IS the Spanish word for "chickpea"....positive identification made of M-67 shirt Myster19

    For me, chickpea refers to the color of the uniform used by the Spanish Nomadic Troops Group (Agrupación Tropas Nomadas) in North Africa in the 1960s and 1970s. I see no similarity with the M-67 uniform with the color of a chickpea. If not rather, it is a beige color like that of a stone. Although there are variations in tone, such as some more khaki and others more gray. But it's just a personal opinion. In the field of military collecting, it is already accepted as a "garbanzo" (chickpea in English) color.

    Cool! Now I know what the matching trousers and hat look like should I run across them in the future! Very Happy

    It does not require difficulty to find them. With determination and perseverance you will surely be able to complete the missing pieces of the M67 uniform.

    Not looking to collect them at all, just looking to identify my piece which was missing the spec tag. Thanks to technology and some friendly collectors, I was able to do this rather quickly!
