DESCRIPTION

Outstanding example of an SS-VT or Waffen SS tunic and breeches for an SS Obersturmführer of Regiment 'Deutschland'. The uniform is tailored of a high quality wool or wool and linen twill fabric in grey-green. The tunic is a 'Rock' design, with upper pleated patch pockets, lower slash pockets, and 2 buttons at the rear waist. The pattern is almost exactly like the black SS tunics except for the extra buttons and stand-and-fall collar. Machine sewn collar tabs with the unit tab being a superbly hand embroidered bullion SS runic tab and the rank tab having 3 pips and 1 double Tresse stripe. Both are edged with bullion twist silver piping. The subdued shoulderboards are removable with one pip each, white Waffenfarbe, and black wool underlay. The sleeve eagle is also beautifully hand embroidered of aluminum bullion and is hand stitched to the sleeve. A flat wire cuff title 'Deutschland' is stitched to the sleeve just above the cuff end. To the other sleeve an 'Old Fighter' chevron is stitched. There are ribbons for the 1939 Iron Cross II. Class and the Eastern Front medal sewn through the button hole and loops for two badges. The tunic is partially lined with the same grey-green twill. There are some rust spots to the interior lower pocketing as may be seen in the photographs. The breeches are a perfect match to the tunic and are of matching high quality tailoring.  They feature side and rear pockets, side adjustment straps, a round reinforcement to the seat area, and button closures at the calf  I can find no markings inside the tunic or breeches but both were worn as they show normal wear and very light soiling. An elegant and wonderfully tailored uniform that is rare to find, and rarer still to find a matching set!
