    Tropicals , boonie and trousers E8f7b52ef307535ee52e39ca38a58f22

    Size 14 early issue which run 34" waist and 31" leg

    These feature larger tropical buttons made from a brittle plastic compound. These are by far best made tropicals I've seen , they scream quality and expensive.

    Tropicals , boonie and trousers 300311d1fde63e7cd9643fa5d358c307

    Size 22 which run 37/38" waist and 32/33 leg easy.

    Large boonies , 60 & 62 both have very light use as no tell tail day glow or colour ghosting appearing.

    Love it mate , I will never tire of looking at Junglies, particularly like the size 22 colours.

    And the boonies are great, the browns look purple,cool very cool.

    That pastel-coloured set on the top right corner is amazing! I'd love to find another set of trops that had faded like that.

    A fantastic first issue gold camo boonie topped off with 2nd patten day glow. All the insides are day glow too except underside brim which is gold.

    Item washed maybe once, tags and metal fixing all black.

    Tropicals , boonie and trousers 5de369aad8f5d455389352851131e444

    Brand new unissued tropicals with unit tags attached , CN000.

    This type don't fade to anything much like the day glow , mustard and gold can. This type is the cross over period print when imperial became metric. If you see my first post the exact same trousers can be found but sized as " SIZE X " where as these are xxx/xx/xxx.

    First patten tropical print. These are the golden tones and are quiet hard to come by in the scale of tropicals.

    Makes me sad that they standardized on the darker colors. If there were two dozen variations of the tropical I'd make room to collect all of them Very Happy They are sooooooo nice to look at.
