    Munchener....it looks at first glance to be a Bundeswehr summer tunic, the Sandfarben tunic, authorised for wear since 1959 in countries with a hot climate, however upon closer examination, it does not conform to the style/cut of such a tunic, its bottom pockets should be boxed as the breast pockets are, I have not seen that method of shoulder strap attachment....some (type 1) Sandfarben tunics did have removable buttons, held on with an "S" ring, but that type of tunic had french cuffs, this one doesnt....the tunic should have a makers label inside, with a date, can you confirm, and if so post photograph...I will reserve judgement until then.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Munchener, here is an original early Bundeswehr type 1 Sandfarben tunic and its makers label, although similiar to yours it is not the same....I am thinking yours could be French.
    Prost ! Steve.

    An odd one, with the tunnels for the shoulder straps looking like those from an SS sahariana tunic, but the rest looking vaguely KM or Bundesmarine, though not right, so may be French or ? Doesn't look right for WWII Km issue, but I don't know what it is.

    Hello. I looked at your tunic and I believe it to be Post war Italian. The method if attaching the shoulder boards is the same as mu original Italian tropical tunics. Basically it's a similar cut to the mid to late 1930's Italian tropical tunic.
