This is a vintage British Army Combat DPM camouflage pattern lightweight jacket, with Desert Rats embroidered shoulder patch. The internal label codes date this to circa 1996. Made in England.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration throughout with a washed worn look. The top button was missing and has been replaced with a vintage British military button. Freshly laundered and ready for its new owner.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
