British DPM BDU Field Shirt

An icon in surplus-wear, this is the British DPM Field Shirt. Like the US Military's M85 Woodland camo, British DPM had a very long service history in many military organizations around the world, particularly in countries that were formerly British colonies.

DPM can be traced all the way back to the Denison smock used by British commandos in the 1940s. Early patterns continued to be used for some field uniforms until it was more widely adopted in 1968. Until 2016, DPM was the standard camo pattern used by the British Armed Forces, and is still used today in some countries.

The field shirt's mechanical design also has a long history with only minor changes being applied over its service, but the phrase "If it aint broke, don't fix it" certainly comes to mind. If that isn't "trad" we aren't sure what is.

Specs

  • 30/70% poly/cotton mix.
  • Two front 7.5" x 8" pockets. 
  • Button fly.
  • Collar button to pop collar for various practical and egotistical uses.
  • Cuff tightening buttons.
  • Strap on the front for attaching rank tab.
  • May feature Union Jack on shoulder or other unit patches.

Sizing

These field shirts are measured in cm using height and chest circumference. The sizing intervals are decently far apart, so you may want to round up or down depending on how you want the shirt to fit (tight like a shirt, or looser like a jacket).

Condition

A vast majority of these shirts are in good to great condition, but some may have issues if unit patches or name tapes were removed (i.e. leftover stitching from the patches, damaged or discolored cloth under where the patch used to be)
