After months of stocking some of the crazier examples of Alpenflage, we've finally got some of the more (relatively) sensible pieces the later model "M83" variants.

Alpenflage, also called TAZ 83, Pizza Camo, and what we've dubbed "Casserole Camo" was issued on different pieces of gear from the late 50s to the early 90s. In fall and early winter foliage the pattern performs at its best, matching the conditions of the Swiss Alps closer than other times of the year. When it hit the surplus market in the 90s, outside of its natural environment in the alps, it stuck out like a sore thumb — in both cool factor and pattern. It continues to intrigue curious surplus collectors and has amassed quite the diehard fandom for both it's functionality and it's unique pattern.

Now down to the field shirt in question — the swiss were astonishingly close to designing something normal, but as per usual, included their trademark odd features that only serve to give their surplus more charm. It's a 50/50 cotton/poly field jacket suitable for spring and fall thanks to its colorway and construction, and sports the typical breast pockets, epaulets, and cigarette pocket many European field shirts also have.

Lets get weird: It also features hip loops for securing an outer belt (presumably for load bearing equipment) zippered & elastic wrist cuffs and two-panel reinforced articulating elbows. Also, in case you lose the button on one of the epaulets, they thought to include a replacement button sewn in above the cigarette pocket for god knows what reason. In short, it's an "almost sensible" field jacket from the Swiss, in their most infamous camo. And that alone might just be right up your alley.

Sizing

The M83 field shirts seem to run a touch large- not a bad idea to go one size down for a more casual fit, or stay to your true EU size if you're throwing layers underneath.

Note: Model is 6' 0", with a 38" chest and wore a Size EU 48 without issue.

Amazing Buy

Bought the European equivalent of the American XL and it fear near perfectly. The shirt appears to be brand new and never used. Baller pattern, great quality as per usual and completes my M83 set.

Don't use while hungry

Fits perfectly and with all the pockets I can go camping and not have to worry about carrying a bag with extra crap weighing me down. Not to mention feels nice to wear though the pattern reminds me of pizza

Fits great and in good condition.

Sizing info was real nice when finding out what to order and when I got it it fit really nicely. Condition was almost like new just had that typical "surplus" smell to it.
