    Slight correction: the smock in post #1 is wartime British made, but converted to a buttoned neck closure by the Belgians after the war.
    The loops were made fron a strip of material taken from the inside of the smock.

    So, it's actually a British Smock with zipper, but the Belgian converted it into a buttoned neck closure?
    Now I understand why the smock in the first picture that I posted have a slight different camo pattern than the Belgian Smock
    Thanks for the picture LucN. Could you post the picture of the neck part and the whole smock?

    Cheers!

    Early button version in this thread, they are rare so hard to find images of them.

    I'm not so sure (but willing to be corrected). I have a post war Belgian smock and my differs in a couple of ways. Mine has button holes (not loops) and the colours show a lot more green and lighter in colour. The smock shown here would appear to be a British one with a zip altered to buttons - I will take some pictures of mine to show the difference
    So I was right! (Although unaware that it was a post war Belgian mod!)

    Cheers!

    edit: Why would they convert from zipper to button? Is it because of preference or what?

    I think buttons are cheaper to replace than zippers if they break?
