Well if your anal about how many dots there are then no, I have a set but you cant really see the dots as there a mess.

I'm on the look for some new Dot this year, and from what ive read/seen SM's is very good.

the dot colour thing is driving me completely round the bend. I've looked and looked at everything available, yes some is so obviously sub standard but I am struggeling to see 5 colours in any, even sm's. Is there anyone who can post a clear and definitive guide, maybe with coparetive pics to clearly show the five ? My sanity is in your hands! K. Koniger. Totenkopf ss

perhaps I'm colour blind then ? All I can see is the base pinky beige, the mint, the dark green and the cocoa. Is there a slightly but almost indecernable lighter beige ?

ok so it's a 3rd green, still finding it hard to see though, and as ATF remark it is not always easy, I guess I'm not alone. has anyone seen Mr. Underwood's current stock close up or bought a set, if so are the famous five all visible?

I was wondering about the RAU suit. The SOF is a SM Wholesale product. I guess there's no cheap way round it, although cheaper from SOF than direct from SM

Nope, no seasonal variations, though quite a wide variety of shades were issued at various times. Mostly the brown and tan changed and the dark green sometimes looks almost black.
