Iirc the 1980s issue stuff was notoriously shoddy, with the sleeve pockets easy to rip off by accident. I’ve got some original 68 pattern DPM and it is quite nicely made, albeit with double lined trousers. I did have an 84 pattern jacket but I’ve no idea where it is now.
I do a spot of BOAR reenactment, although we are all getting a bit old for it😉
