On this DPM green camo shirt we apply on the half side a deadstock check shirt. We unstitched one of the front pockets apply the check cut with the front left shape and re-apply the pocket in its original position. The sleeve cuff has been reinforced applying internally the check fabric.
Disruptive Pattern Material (DPM) is the commonly used name of a camouflage pattern used by the British Armed Forces as well as many other armies worldwide, particularly in former British colonies such as Kenya.
The main variants of DPM are a four-colour woodland pattern, and desert patterns in two, three or four colours. The Woodland Pattern DPM was used with the mediumweight No.8 Temperate Combat Dress (c.1966/1968) and lightweight No.9 Tropical Combat Dress (c.1976). The later Desert Pattern DPM (c.late 1980s) was designated the No.5 Desert Combat Dress.
DPM has also been produced in black/white/grey Urban DPM, in various blue tones and even in purples (this last for the Swazi Royal Guard).
DPM has been phased out in British military service, superseded by Multi-Terrain Pattern.
