    Fake desert DPM shirt? Empty Fake desert DPM shirt?

    Post by MaverickMCS on Tue Dec 20, 2011 3:14 pm

    Hi,
    A while ago, I've got this desert DPM shirt, but I'm not sure if she is legit.
    The shirt have only the tag on the picture. Shouldn't it have a DCTA tag as well?
    The shirt also seems very light, and the cotton is thin, at least thinner than other cotton shirts I have.
    If the shirt is in fact legit, what model it is?
    Thanks for the help, and sorry for the bad quality of the pics.

    Looks legit to me. What you have is the "airtex" (tropical) fabric version of the CS95 desert shirt. Very breathable when worn in hot and/or humid places.

    Also, could you please take a second and post a short thread in our introductions section? It'll help us get to know you and your collecting interests a bit better. Thanks! Cool

    Thanks guys, I thought this one might be a fake because it doesn't had the DCTA tag, like on other s95 I have. The newer shirts doesn't have the tag?
    Just a pick of the tag I am talking about:

    I'll echo Philip on this one -- I have literally tons of British camo (my collecting weakness) Laughing

    I can think of only 2 shirts in my collection with that tag.

    Thanks for the help!
