Lizard or what?

Recommended Posts

I found this today at the local Goodwill.. Cheap too. It's a really large size but I'm having trouble trying to ID it.

The tag that was sewn up near the collar has been torn out and there are no stampings inside...

 

Ideas?

 

Thanks in advance....

I had one of these a bit ago. They were apparently an African contract in a former French colony.

And with the French stuff, the direction of the pattern. One country, maybe Brazil, had theirs run vertically.

Here is the set that I had. In different collector groups I belong to it was IDed as an African contract. I forget which country off hand. Might be found over here: http://www.camopedia.org/index.php?title=Main_Page#AFRICA

Excellent website! I did not know that was out there. Someone has been very busy to put all of that together. Thanks for posting.

Sully - Mine is the exact cut as yours - the two Velcro's (one above the pocket, the other at the chest) along with the two vertical zippered pockets. It's a huge jacket too. Dude must of been about 6'3' and weighed in at 270. I'll check out the website and see if I can nail down which country....

 

Again fellas, thanks for the comments and help.

hello

for sure not an original french jacket. It could be made for an african nation because the french pattern is really different.

Also could be a hunter made.

This my TAP 47/56 jacket, a recently discovered interest. I did wear it occasionally but I'm too lazy to get it off the torso every time I go walk my dog. :Ppost-80-0-99987200-1538468165.jpg
