    bro picked these up for me at Value Village since he knows I like odd camos....lol
    the interestin thing is there are no ink stamps ANYWHERE i could find...and all have same brown disc buttons; with same X stitching on them...same thread on all of the stitching I could see...quite DIFFERENT leg sizes....the store didnt have a 2nd jacket according to my brother...so what did he get for me, Portuguese vertical lizard uniform pieces?
    jacket; note two shoulder reinforcements, ellipical elbow reinforcements, short collar?

    Looks like a very early Portuguese pattern given the knee reinforcing

    It would make a cool 70's mercenary in Africa display. Those guys loved this pattern.
