I'm getting an MTP uniform together (trousers, ubacs and smock)

 

I've got a shirt and wonder what peoples thoughts are on mixing an MTP shirt with DPM trousers (until I get the rest)

Do whatever you want, even the real guys sometimes mix camo. I used to mix DPM trousers with an MTP UBACS (got a full set of Polish K93 now).

 

Cant say they're the best matching camos ever, but I wouldn't worry about it too much.

One thing I've always noticed from my time in exercises and on operations in various landscapes

 

Foliage tends to get lighter in colour as it grows towards the sky

 

I know soldiers tend to mix uniforms depending where they are

Wear what you like. If anyone else doesn't like it, that's their problem. I will happily mix things up from time to time, I quite often wear an OD vest with black combat pants and black top when doing CQB, because it is practical and the camo doesn't matter much.

 

Yes some people will freak out when they see that kind of thing going on and start lecturing on it, but using odd uniforms and what is to hand is common in real conflicts: Kriegsmarine submariners in WW2 famously wore abandoned British Army Battledress blouses and pants left behind when the BEF bailed out of Dunkirk, and that was not simply a different colour, it was the enemy's uniform, although in fairness, it was very similar to the proper Kriegsmarine submariner's jacket.

 

Interesting MTP/DPM comparison vids:
