    Swedish, at a glance and are found fairly cheaply and I assume you mean for the Heer.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I would buy a replica rather than a postwar tunic. But Jerry is right. All depends on your budget.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I would opt for a repro. too.
    But the Swedish M/39 and M39-58 is as close as it gets to a German WWII uniform.
    Alas the price of an original M/39 has risen dramatically because people are buying them to make cheap German re-enactor uniforms

    Well to be honest I don't know.

    But I managed to find a cheap M/39-58 uniform here: www.militarlagret.se

    195 SEK = about 28 USD

    The only difference between a M/39 and a M/39-58 is the two back pockets.
    They are very easy to remove, since they are applied post war to all the remaining M/39 uniforms.

    I don't know what a repro uniform cost, but the M/39 might be the cheaper alternative.
