    Default Need opinions on this Luftwaffe Flight Tunic...

    Hi all. Someone contacted me about this tunic and I'd like to get some opinions on it. The photos aren't great, but they do show the different elements of the tunic fairly well, including the underside of the collar. I've compared this with some of the others in my collection and the interior looks correct, the pockets look good, the eagle looks good (proper stitching), but the one thing I question is the stitching of the underside of the collar. When compared to others that I have, it looks different, but perhaps this one simply has a different stitch pattern than others?

    Thoughts??

    From the bad pictures provided, i see no red flags. The stitches under the collar are not the same on every tunic. Many makers had their own way of sewing them.

    It must be really small as it's a size "88". It will be difficult to be displayed.

    Thanks for the feedback, and for the info regarding the collar stitching. That was my biggest concern.

    Despite the small size the tunic looks pretty good and with the correct additions it would look even better.

    Thanks Bochmann. Is the tunic missing something? What additions are you referring to?

    Sorry, the "missing" items here would be the rest of the uniform together with the belt,equipment and the like.

    I would have answered this sooner but I logged off just after my post yesterday.
