    It looks Italian, but I am not sure.

    Or a British paratrooper "Denison" smock

    Obviously a Denison smock and it looks to be original, though I could not tell what date it is or which pattern. I notice this is not a very recent thread, so probably pointless posting here.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I could be wrong as I am not expert in these, but I have had a couple. I think it a second pattern Denison as it has the knitted cuffs, I am probably missing many other details though.

    We need to know the actual colour of the snap fasteners. Brass are wartime, but nickle are post war and used on the 46 pattern smock.

    1st pattern and 46 pattern had knitted cuffs.

    2nd pattern had button and tab cuffs.

    Cheers, Ade.
