    Good  find !!

    Very unique pattern.  Commercial, or not, this is certainly a scarce item.  Would love to see more 

    pieces in this pattern.      Thanks for posting.

    Congrats, Mr. Matz,

    Leave it to you to find a(nother) fantastic version of the great M62 ( or M65 ). cheers 

    Extremely nice, and in great conditions, the pattern seems  similar to the pattern of  the trousers posted by Santiago.

    Love the name tape, and incorporated Para wings; simply outstanding !!!

    Enjoy it, I am certain  you are very happy with this previously unknown ( at least to me ) camouflage pattern, and the classic cut of this beautiful piece.

    You are very welcome, D,

    Certainly looks like the same cut on the  left.

    From a collector's point, it would be nice if it was the same cut, but a different pattern, Very Happy    so that there could be the possibility of a 4th pattern, a 5th, a.... bounce

    Don't often get to see close ups of these patterns..

    German design influence is in effect on this piece, just like Spanish M61s , but the pattern is just so beautiful and unique.

    I am guessing you are enjoying the glow of having acquired such a classic.

    Rightly so..

    Thanks for posting..

    Howdy...

    Was looking through some of my odds and ends when I found a set of inner braces for my Spanish   M62(M65 Question) Para smock that were removed  from it years ago.

    The braces  incorporate metal  hooks that go through the smock from the inside to the outside.

    The hooks help support   web belt and related  gear  like on WWII German smocks..

    Fantastic! First time I've seen the braces. Not the best arrangement, so I'm guessing many of them were "lost" by soldiers Wink

    Thanks guys,

    I took them out years ago because they were not needed ( by me ).  I'm certain Spanish soldiers  did that well before I did....

    They do work to a degree, but are definitely archaic...

    There is a post in this thread of a photo of this uniform that shows the hooks in use...circa early '80.

    Thank Alex,

    Colors of all 3 M62s types ( we know about ) are amazing in colors and cuts.

    Could not have been many of them made. These were small batch quality uniforms for specific small units.

    Those who have any M62 type pieces are indeed very fortunate to have them...

    I did not say how happy I am for Gilles in this thread, nor how jealous I am.  Consider both statements made Very Happy

    A complete set (less hood?) in matching excellent condition with belt. Amazing.

    The color differences are very interesting. It's more like M61 in colors, but it has the M62 cut. Nice!!

    The second jacket is used, The first jacket, pant and hood are near new
    The hood have the same colors than the first jacket and pant
    The colors of the second jacket are due at washing and wear, I think, originaly, they are the same

    This is the first photo of this uniform in use I ever seen.   It appears to be of a COE Captain during training.  Note the attached hood which is only seen on this uniform. I found the photo in this book..
