Strong Passion For Original Army Garments

MYAR has a strong passion for original army garments. They have a functional design with elements that are seen in many modern clothing brands nowadays. MYAR is giving garments a second life, and upcycle them so these historical items are ready for a new adventure.

Highest Labor Intense Of All In The Collection

This upcycled German camouflage jacket is the highest labor-intense of all in the MYAR collection. The jacket is used inside out, so they reversed it and repositioned all the internal parts in the ‘new’ external face. For example, for the lower pockets, they added a welt opening allowing the entrance of the original internal lining. They also unstitched the top camouflage pockets and repositioned them on the top of the chest. Even the epaulets are unstitched and sewn again on the shoulders.

The internal sleeve pocket is also repositioned, showing the camouflage part, and they did the same with the sleeve cuffs. A lot of work was unstitching the hood, and to position it in the original place on the other side.

On the back of the jacket, they added a military green MYAR deadstock fabric logo.

The Camouglage Pattern Of The Parka

The MYAR jacket has a Flecktarn camouflage pattern. This pattern is also known as Flecktarnmuster or Fleckentarn. Its design is a family of 3, 4, 5, or 6-color disruptive camouflage patterns. The most common being the five-color pattern, consisting of dark green, light green, black, red-brown, and green-brown or tan depending on the manufacturer. The original German 5-color pattern was designed for use in European temperate woodland terrain. A 3-color variation called Tropentarn (formerly Wüstentarn) is intended for arid and desert conditions.

In 1976, the Bundeswehr in Germany developed several prototype camouflage patterns, to be trialed as replacements for the solid olive-grey ‘moleskin’ combat uniform. At least four distinct camouflage patterns were tested during Bundeswehr Truppenversuch 76 (Bundeswehr Troop Trial 76). These were based on patterns in nature: one was called ‘Dots’ or ‘Points’; another was called ‘Ragged Leaf’ or ‘Saw Tooth Edge’; another was based on pine needles in winter.
