    And splinter is IMO "mostly" green, so the moniker still applies.

      That would only be a valid conclusion if you also had a green 3rd model, and the combined total of green 2nd and 3rd models were less than the total of the splinter models. Since we don't have green 3rd models you can't present the data that way.

      Green step-ins are considered more representative than splinter step-ins, based on the results so far. And, also selected more frequently than 3rd model splinters.

If I think about the quintessential image, in my mind's eye I see an FJ with SD helmet, splinter smock (with rolled up sleeves), MP40 and magazine pouch, P08 holster, para trousers and front lacing boots - classic for Italy, France, Holland, etc.! But that is just me.
        Agreed. Spot on assessment for me also ( apart from the rolled up sleeves) .

          I like the rolled sleeves. Very southern Italian as Mike says. Off thread a bit, but love those netted helmets in Italy too.

          Each to his own, but Splinter smocks will always be dearest to my heart........

            A great photo illustrating just what Mike is talking about, classic Fj and IMHO one of the greatest looking of all combat uniforms.

              John is right, have to agree, FJ splinters are the best looking and represent Italy, Normandy and after. Im a fan as I finally nabbed one of my own at the last SOS.
