here is a real good paying attention to detail hand sewn job looks like.
you can see how flat the insignia is, and place perfectly, and the interlocking stitching on the underneath.
Do you see any sew marks on the front of the collar tabs, NONE AT ALL....
You can also see the sew job on the collar cord, sewn perfectly, but you see no stitching on the front part of the silver collar cord.
Hi, I just saw this thread now.
In my opinion, the cloth insignia are ok (the "raute" and the gebietsdreieck). The enameled pin should be closely inspected and so the BDM jacke. It looks ok though but the buttons have been probably replaced and - as already said - the insignia reapplied. The black foulard looks a bit too shiny , like it is sintetic fabric.
The price seems too good , especially with that triangle (which is for boys and not for girls), so I agree with those who wrote before: you should have the chance to inspect it and get a return policy from seller.
well 3 years on an the OP should be very happy with himself if he bought this kletter, the prices of the Ausland triangles is now through the roof!
