Tropical set

Article about: Yes, There are - but generally in Italy or Southern France. You could use 'puttees' and gebirgsjager boots? Regards, Mark New Zealand

    Default Tropical set

    Hello all,

    I'd appreciate thoughts on this wonderful tropical set. It comes with field blouse under shirt, tie and trousers. It looks good to me but second opinions always help! Thanks

    All looks fine.

    The tunic was made in Berlin.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hello,
    Yes all look original and in very good condition.
    The shirt looks like a french M35 shirt of which many examples were worn by DAK troops.
    If you dont own tropical boots, IMO straight trousers would be preferable than tropical breeches...
    Thanks

    Thank you for the added information. Why do you say that about the trousers? Unfortunately I do not have boots.

    Hello,
    you're welcome...
    Breeches were designed to be worn with high tropical boots. They might be a bit short to be worn with tropical or leather ankle boots...and wearing them with Marschstiefel would look weird (i'm sure someone has a photo...).
    My tropical Panzergrenadier (circa late 42/early 43) wears straight tropical trousers with mountain boots/mountain puttees).
    And the shirt is definitely french
    Thanks

    Thank you. I see what you mean now. Are there examples of tropical troops wearing plain standard issue black knee high boots?
