    There are various images of Himmler and his entourage with the black leather overcoat with the light grey facings.
    Maybe I sound somewhat stupid, but could it be possible the white lapels are in lieu to what was done with the regular great-coat
    for the "hot shots"?

    Odd photo--piping on tunic does not match visor; odd Karneval-style neck medal; extra ribbon bar, etc--may be a case of dress-up:

    Also, note that the man appears to wearing makeup (look at the eye/eyebrow area in particular). In my opinion, a theater costume composed of original items (except for the neck cross).

    Looks like an arm eagle on the side of the cap in the foreground, not the usual triangular eagles of the rest?
    Why are these men wearing collar piping?

    They aren't wearing collar piping, but I suppose you mean collar patch piping.

    There is nothing unusual about it; this is the black-and-aluminum piping worn by privates and NCOs, which was officially abolished in August 1940.

    From the types of field caps, field blouses and shoulder boards, it is clear that this is an early-war photograph. (The EK2 ribbons tell us it can't be pre-war.)

    HPL2008 is right. There is no collar piping, but just the collar-patch piping.
