The anatomy of the Schirmmutze

Article about: Ben is a wonderful collector scholar, as we all know. I have a very serious adult job, which consumes a lot of my time, and I cannot translate all of this. I will leave the burden to others,

    Hi Dave, you are correct. The soutach may be rayon and like the cotton lining be a less attractive dinner than the woolen body of the cap.

    An interesting pic.

    Cheers, Ade.

    That reinforcement strip looks like waxed linen or canvas, which i suppose would make sense to be used as a stiffener

    I imagine a lot of people will now be fondling their caps as a result of this pic

    A recently available piece from Bruce Hermann. Ben, would you be willing to elaborate on what we see here as a quick lesson? I know I would greatly appreciate a description of the components.

    Regards,

    There is no need to show wrecked caps to ascertain how they were made. The pieces, raw material, and process are described here as contained in this book. The process and chronology are described in this book ca. 1935.

    I also got the Peek & Cloppenburg uniform making book from 1942, which also does huge damage to the archaeology paradigm as operates on the marron dorkimer website. It is a history of military tailoring and its modernization, which is also in the UM thingies. This reality is the center of gravity here, not some list derived from looking at 250 or 350 extant caps in North America.
    I added this some time ago, and it is the basis of my understanding, but Ben can add from his rich experience.
    damit, basta.

    How did I miss this thread? Excellent reference. Has anyone tried to label the cap in the first pic?
