    Hi Guys. I would really appreciate your input on these mystery trousers, I will let the pictures tell the story, but I picked them up over this weekend for very little money.

    Sorry forgot to mention, there are no labels, all the buttons are OG, all the button holes are sewn up like I have shown, there may well have been some sort of material cut out from the butt area, which might have had a label of some sort. Basically US DBDU pattern, with British S95 style belt loops, thigh pockets, rear butt pocket,...weird No!!! Question

    I've no idea, except this is totaly different of the US made ones. This camo was also used in some african and arab countries. For me not US made and not for the US army.

    P-E and MZ, many thanks for your input. Very Happy

    I agree they are definitely not US issue, incidentally I have also posted these over on IACMC to try and get a range of theories on their original source, the vibe I'm getting so far could be African, so your opinions tally with others, so thanks for this confirmation guys I truly appreciate it Wink
