German WW2 Officers jacket query
I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I'm a new collector of German millitaria and have purchased this jacket but need some help to identify whether it is an original WW2 jacket (and armband) or a repro. I have attached some images
The seller is also selling the matching german officers hat and some british WW2 jackets but I still have some doubts.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Halloween gone bad! Get your money back!
oh my.. As others have stated, go back and demand a refund.
Absolutely hilarious that anyone would spend money on such rubbish...I suggest investing some time and effort in studying the subject which you intend to collect, friend...
Welcome to the Forum. As others have said, this is a non period tunic with reproduction insignia mounted in a ridiculous pattern that never existed. The cap is also not 3rd Reich period. If you are considering collecting this material, it is wise to always post pictures of an intended puchase before laying out your hard earned cash. Of utmost importance is buy some reference books and learn what you are looking at. This hobby is complex and complicated. Self education is very important. The Forum and our members are here to help. However, that will stop if they do not see an effort on the part of the poster to learn. There is a lot of bad stuff and crooked people in the collecting of militaria-especially 3rd Reich. Good luck and once again, welcome!

Welcome to the forum, what you have here is a West German Uniform with repro insignia added to it to increase value
As stated Junk tunic post war issue Appears BW (West German) dress, parade tunic with insignia added can't see insignia well enough to comment but based on tunic good chance it is modern made Cap same thing. This is a quick easy way to dress up BW tunics and caps better off left alone as some of them are becomming collectible in their own rights. Addition of TR insignia to them has been going on for years. As stated by Knowledgable collectors return it if possible. timothy
One of the strangest and poorly construed fakes i have ever seen.
I think this should be adde to the " best of the worst" thread. Truly gruesome .
