    With the switch to MTP there won't be the opportunity to wear Tropicals/Jungles, pre 95 smocks, knackered old windproof smocks etc which hint at an long exotic past.

    What items do old lags hope to accessorise themselves with in the brave new world.

    I expect I will continue to wear my 44 pattern belt from my days in the colonies and may occasionally wear green wool socks.

  2. I am currently collecting OG PLCE to build a replacement for my DPM belt kit, and I wasn't even in when OG PLCE was issued!

    Although I'm told I should be in Blackhawk to advertise my stock.....
     
  3. No debate required:

    Jersey, heavy, wool!
     
  4. Wear MTP but swagger around in Boots CBH!
     
  5. Still wearing my 58 Pattern web belt!

    And I'm guessing MTP/PCS trousers still have belt loops?

    So......................
     
  6. The crappy green fleece may yet have it's moment in the spotlight.
     
  7. MTP in CS95 cut will definitely be ally in a few years
     
  8. Definately the chinese fighting suit.
     
  9. Puttees with boots DMS...
     
  10. Green ponchos, cos MTP Gore-Tex will be in short supply.
     
  11. As the waterproofs are not getting relised yet it will be a DPM waterproof jacket and MTP trousers.
     
  12. Green plastic bayonet frog and white PT pumps mit MTP
     
  13. SLR of course.
     
  14. Shirts green scratchy, No. 2 dress tie, coveralls, blackened webbing gaiters and '44 patt belt & brasses, ammo boots, topped off with a DPM forage cap at a suitably raffish angle - what else?
