    Default Repro SS hat - How good or bad is it?

    I am not in the market for one, I know next to nothing about them, except from what I have read in various threads here, BUT! I bought a torch from this Chinese site, and it's great! Absolutely no complaints, so I thought I'd have a quick look through his other articles and found this. I'm just interested what the experten here think of it? Admittedly there is only two photos, but I was wondering how good the Chinese are getting these days?

    I like the "M32 model used by elite troops" patter. Totally wrong description of what is a poor reproduction cap IMO for $100 plus.

    Good spot to look for repros, all Janke made, is Extra Classe - The online shop for Michael Janke caps & uniforms

    With those reenactment photos there, he should also list the hat as REPRO

    I donīt even think that an "M 32" existed.

    Very true, it is a collector-invented term.

    Now I know where the non existant M32 term came from. Recentlly, we have had two threads using this term in relation to reproduction black uniforms. Without detailed pictures of the Chinese cap, it is impossible to say how accurate the copy is.

    Now I can get a made to measure black SS officers greatcoat for $140AU! Again, I have no idea how good or bad these uniforms are, but you sure could get yourself suited up for a fancy dress party or a reenactment at a pretty reasonable price.
