Response to Current Tanzanian Uniforms
Thanks very much for the update. Very interesting about how our design has had a minor influence for another country's design. I wonder why the Tanzanian decided to use standard sized buttons?
The slotted buttons appear to be very popular. The Russians use them for the Spetnatz DPM type uniform and in French these buttons are called les bouton canadiens (the Canadian buttons)
I always was under the impression that our combat uniform buttons came from Britian.
