I still think it is more than just brightness. There is too much green, and it isn't even a "fleck" or spotted pattern, it looks like blobs or splotches on a child's painting smock.

Well as for the colors you can tone them up/down, change them or whatever. Animal customs has done two jerseys for me and I asked for color changes from the templates and they did whatever I asked for.

I wonder if they would be receptive to an email saying "So I'd like your 'Flecktarn' jersey but, you know, in actual Flectarn please".

If you say it like that, then probably not.

If you want something better, then spend less time whining and more time making a vector file.

I have no interest in a new Flecktarn jersey (I have a Flecktarn BDU and a Foxwood from Kohn). I was pointing out that the jersey they are selling is a poor knockoff of Flecktarn. If someone wants to buy it because they like it, more power to them.

Honestly I like the animal version, it is a little bright but I think in the summers around here it might just work. Maybe I'll darken the green a little but I think it's a good option versus a bdu jacket.

^Try CADPAT. It is great for lighter green foliage, especially when there are lots of leafy trees and shrubs about. I have always found Flecktarn great in the fall and if you are playing in darker or muddier terrain.

Idkfa.... Then why are you here? :thumbdown:

Just to complain about what is available, even though you have no interest in buying anything like it? And then to recommend other camouflaged patterns?

Just general discussion. I stopped looking for Flecktarn jerseys a while ago because no one actually produced anything that is adequate. Flecktarn is by far my favourite pattern, I switched because of the difficulty in finding it. I perhaps spoke too quickly about not wanting a Flecktarn jersey; if a high quality material in true Flecktarn pattern were available, I would certainly buy it. And I did come off as argumentative, I will refrain from taking my frustrations out, it isn't helping the OP.

I was going to suggest https://www.flecktarn.co.uk/ but the OP is interested in a jersey rather than combat shirts or BDUs. Is it possible that this supplier may have enough authentic material to sell so that a run of Flecktarn jerseys could be produced?

And the comment about CADPAT was off topic, apologies for that.
