Tom, a good Luftwaffe Lt Oberst pilots Gala/mess tunic...they are not producing fake BW tunics (as yet !) Miltec, Sturm and some other manufacturers are producing some flecktarn and moleskin items for the private purchase market, and are sold as such, to both the military and private sectors, such is demand, I would not call them fakes/repros, more like current production. I do not collect these types of items, prefering BW original issue or KKB items.
Prost ! Steve.
