ZIB does not sell the Panther smock. ZIB sent a Panther-smock to his manufacturer in Asia as a basis to produce the low-cost ZIB-smock.
They really did a good job - only the buttons are a bit different...

Allmost all manufacturers of cheap repro uniforms and equipment do it this way - the do not copy originals, they copy good repros.
Only a few manufacturers really cut original uniforms into pieces to make the "perfect" repro - for example "At The Front". But this is a very expensive method - and the customer have to pay for this - which most are not willing to do...

Yes i agree, have thought this for quite a while, especially when looking at repro SS smocks, the Asian
manufacturerers appear to be "copying copies" hence the differences in print/colour from the real thing,
now i only get my SS smocks from SMW which in my opinion due to their screen printing methods which
was done originally appear to get a very close reproduction :wink:
