    As an update, in the same shop that I found this jacket and the Italian camo jumpsuit, I found this Luftwaffe Pilots Jacket, marked simply as "European Flight Jacket". I post it to show that this is a total fake, and this casts my two zeltbahn pieces in a worse light now. Lesson learned about fieldmade items and items without provenance!

    P.S. A quick google search told me that the RIES zipper company was founded in 1949!

    I think a former re-enactor sold his kit to the store.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yes, I think this clinches it for me. Are the boards on this jacket fake as well though? Or are they DDR? I haven't ever handled period epaulets and these looked ok to me. Not going to go out and buy it, just curious for future reference.
    Thanks,
    Eddie

    Look at it this way, at least the store staff are not claiming/marking them up as "original"!
