    Hello, Very Happy

    I need your help one more time to identify those DPM camouflages used to make serb uniforms during the war (91-95). I think it is Dutch and british DPM, what do you think?

    Top one looks New Zealand 'Action Man' DPM, nice score there!

    The second looks Dutch, but also looks similar to the early faded Brit Windproofs.

    Thank's for this first answer! Very Happy
    Effectively, the overall camouflage looks like N-Z DPM!
    I looked in the pockets of the pants, the canvas isn't faded.

    Hi Elsasser.

    The coveralls look sort of Kiwi in pattern, the trousers are not British, could be Dutch, the way knee patches are sewn at an angle have thrown me though.

    Are there any labels or any other distinguishing features ???


    I am aware British DPM was worn in this conflict ,sourced from surplus, but can't recognise the trousers I'm afraid.

    These appear to be locally made uniforms, and probably very rare ones at that. They are, without a doubt, not NZ or Dutch items since neither country made anything like this in terms of the tailoring. And as Gilles pointed out, the coveralls are quite distinctive and not like anything else I've seen.

    Very cool stuff.

    Hello!

    Thank's for your help!
    This are serbian local made uniforms, there is no label except the size.
    Here a serbian beret in DPM I also have it is the same colors as the overall but more pronounced :

    Hello!

    I've also found what the pants camouflage is.
    It is a variant of serb DPM. I've compare the pattern of a DPM I knew serb to this one, and it's the same. The pants isn't faded (I've check on areas not exposed).
