    Anyone collect South Korean (ROK) uniforms? I don't, but I do have a shirt and jacket probably once seen on the ceasefire border with North Korea.

    Evidently in the 1980's the ROK began producing their own uniforms based on a variation of the US M1948 ERDL and M81 Woodland.

    Then in 1990 the South Korean Armed Forces adopted a universal camouflage uniform based on these patterns, but with significant differences in colour, shapes, and this pattern remained in service to 2010.

    The shirt is interesting in that it's a two pocket type, and not bellow pockets, and with a gas flap (perhaps useful on a border with North Korea!), the convex buttons are even 3 colour plastic, green, brown, black. I've never seen that before. No idea what the unit badges are, printing on fabric indicated it was made in 2007.

    The jacket is a heavy material winter type with interior buttons to attach a padded liner, and large YKK zipper ideal for heavy gloved hands. The colours in this camouflague are darker and I guess more winter hues than the shirt which suggests tropical vegetation.

    I've no idea what unit used the jacket, feel free to comment if you have information on it.
