Product Description
 

Reproduction M43 German tunic made from herringbone twill cloth. Although several models of HBT uniforms existed for most of the War, they were relatively uncommon until 1943-44. Made in the dark "reed green" color cloth, externally these Feldblusen are nearly identical to the wool versions aside from only having two belt hook stations rather than four. Inside, the lining is only used as reinforcements to back the pocket flaps, armpits and so forth. The rectangular pocket at the hem for the first aid dressing is also present. One unique feature of these uniforms are the removable buttons- those on the pockets and placket are attached to "S" rings rather than stitched on.

These are a Heer (Army) uniform. No evidence has been found to show Waffen SS troops using this particular model of tunic. However, they are often seen wearing the simpler, "drill" tunics in the field. The Luftwaffe had their own version of these.

For the social media historians who have never
seen real, WWII original reed-green uniforms, yes,
our color is very much correct. Sorry.

As with most of our garments, these are exclusive to ATF. No other company has these particular reproductions. Our tunics were made directly from one of my unissued originals, and we took care to include all the details and duplicate the cut which most companies fail to do. WWII "Drillich" fabric was linen or a cotton/ linen blend, and relatively thick, similar to denim. Our cloth is like that from 1943-45, a tough, durable material- not the paper towel weight found on many other reproductions. The contractor really hit the rayon lining dead-on. The color and weight are perfect.

Fit: Same as wool tunics. Our sleeves are the correct diameter- they don't fit like condoms as some other reproductions do. At this time, we only have regular length available.

These are machine washable. The best method is to button the front, flip the tunic inside out, then wash cold. Hang dry. The S-rings are cute and clever, but can be a genuine bastard to use. (Turning the garment inside out minimizes the paint chipping.)
