    From what my Bundeswehr friends told me is that the trial run of an SS-derived camo scheme was deemed too "aggressive" and that was code for "too Third Reich looking".

    The Austrians seemed to have no hangups. I brought this one back from Europe myself:Swiss Jacket M70Swiss Jacket M70Swiss Jacket M70

    I've seen these but assumed they were Art School-dyed or similar....'hadn't appreciated there were variants of the four fruit pyjamas! I've seen part "gloss" trousers too....very strange cloth combo
    Cheers, I did dye an Asian? woodland shirt back in the teen years purple - still have it somewhere!?!
