The original “SAS SMOCK” was issued to the British Special Forces, SAS (Special Air Service) , SBS (Special Boat Service) and the SOE (Special Operation Executive) in the early 40s and featured two pleated chest pockets along with two lower bellow pockets, a drawstring hood, hem and waist. Manufactured in a wind proof printed brown and green splintered camouflage fabric and oversized in shape for obvious practical reasons. During the later years of the war it was also the garment of choice for many snipers from regular British regiments.
Post war it was superseded by a full zip version but with the same pocket configuration and was subsequently produced in different colour ways such as white , black and olive green for different operational situations and in the 1960’s came the distinctive camouflage known as DPM (Disruptive Pattern Material)
Daiki’s version for Engineered Garments is reminiscent of the post war “SAS Smock”, full zipped and with many of the design elements of the original like the pocket configurations and drawcords. There are two rear pockets which are a feature often found on many of his jacket and coat over the last twenty years. It is finished with a lightly padded lining with two additional internal pockets.
