LOL, used to watch his stuff and then pretend we were good when we went down to Newquay. Anyone who likes surfing should look up Spyders work if they’re not aware already. Love the board, thanks for posting mate .

Well used Late War Lightweight Pattern pants I got off eBay. Im not aware of any repros of this pattern so my assumption is that these are likely original.

You have the rougher cloth version.

Of course real.

How do you mean by the rougher cloth version? The material itself feels almost like lightweight, flannel pajamas due to the softness.

Well if you could post a decent picture I am sure we could see exactly what you mean.

What is being said is there are a couple of different types of the trousers you have shown.

 

Also there is a repro out there of this pattern.

Not sure if tactile perception can be perceived through a picture, but here's a close up of the weave of the fabric if that's what you meant by a decent picture.

and it is just like Owen said, the coarser version of this pattern.

 

Is there any more insight that you can offer? From previous examples of "lightweight Tigers," it looks like my example is a different shade from others as well, despite mine being faded. Does the shade have any correlation to the weave?

Or rather, its a modern made up version as it not a reproduction of any of the war time patterns

This is on display in a shop - display only. What do you guys think? I think it looks okay but would like to hear some other opinions.
