ID:	305439The private purchase tunic of a Gauleiter. An interesting aside on these uniforms is that I have never found a RZM tag in either the tunic or trousers of any examples of this uniform.

ID:	305494An example of the white double breasted tunic belonging to an Ortsgruppenleiter holding the pay grade of Hauptgemeineschafteiter. It is likely that few Ortsgruppenleiter had the financial resources to purchase the brown double breasted tunic let alone a white example. This tunic is private purchase and named to Felix Aldeneder, Ortsgruppenleiter of Altenhof, Muntz District, Mecklenburg Vor Pommern.

    If any member has one of these tunics, please add it to this thread.

    Bob, the absolute pinnacle of any PL collection. People do not realize just how rare these double-breasted tunics are--it is hard to even find period pictures of them in wear.

    Heres my one and only double breasted which I am happy to have along with the tunic are the original black trousers - tunic is for Kreis Level, Ober-Berichsleiter(Senior Zone Leader) and the Brassard reflects "Kriesleiter" -
