    The DPM windproof smock I have in my closet is a Size 7.

    I dug the thing out and it is actually a Size 8 and is marked "Smock Combat Windproof Arctic".

    Not a parka.

    And I'm pretty sure the last of the Denison Smocks, the 1972 pattern, were still using the Size 1, 2, 3, &c labels until the end.
  11. Fascinating.

    Please do tell us more.

    What type of buttons did it have?
