    Hello,
    Better photos of the Feldbluse would be helpful, with natural light if possible.
    Thanks

    Proper liner cloth but indeed strange construction

    The eagle is a well known fake, so this could cast doubts on the tunic, not really my area of knowledge though, so I wont pass comment.

    And the backing colour of the eagle is wrong.

    Hi Jerry.I hadn't noticed that the eagle had flaws, you are probably right.The tunic was bought on an auction without the breast eagle I had to sew one myself.I am think of posting a picture of a framed template I 've made with various kinds of Army (Heer) eagles.Needeless to say that your mind-and other mates of course shall be valuable and most appreciated! Thank you.

    That would be interesting to see, I have had similar thoughts and I am trying to gather an example of each type to illustrate the evolution of Heer bevo eagles.

    Hello,
    To be perfectly honest, i don't like very much the construction, the lining, close not not cigar, the fact the lining under the collar is the same than inside the tunic, Litzen and Tresse are most probably postwar applied. The major problem is the tabs for retaining the hooks meant to support the belt...are they factory made?, were they modified?...in 1940 when this tunic was supposed to be accepted, there was no tab yet, they appeared later, in 1942...in 1940 there still was the system including two long cloth straps over the shoulders...and your tunic seems to have the slits for using the cloth straps suspenders and the tabs ???
    It should be one system or another, not both on the same Feldbluse...the white thread used inside is also a concern...the shoulderstraps as well...sorry.
    That's why better photos are needed, it's always hard to give an opinion without handling the items, so nice and clear photos are very useful.
    Thanks

    The "Lago Hessen" stamp had me wondering if this tunic was made by the US re-enactment supplier Hessen? I have looked at some of his tunics, but could not find an exact match re the lining. Just a though.

    I can only say this tunic would not be for me.

    Cheers, Ade.
