The cap is made by Lubstein on contract for issue to troops, as you deduce.
It had to go from Alt Moabit to Potsdam, probably via the quartermaster for Berlin.
Here is the Heeresbekleidungsamt in Bernau as it appears today, or yesterday.
It was erected in 1939 ff for the needs of the wartime army.
The bw image is of the Alex in the 1930s, or so, where Lubstein ended up, also as part of its mobilization posture made easier by aryanization.
Alex was the garment district, and after 1938, its Jewish population was ethnically cleansed and the property of these persons seized by the regime.

Friedrich, thanks for those posts. I agree, something with use and history is preferable! Here is the jacket I will match it up with for display. The early date is a good match. NH
Very nice. I think the two things fit very nicely. I am not a Feldbluse person, but that one is tailor made, is it not? It is gabardine, but that is picco bello.

Very nice, poetic Lederbesatz, wie aus dem Bilderbuch!
