    I have some qualms about the hat.
    It appears to be a standard civilian hat with a DAF Fest badge placed on it.
    The DAF was under the auspices of the RZM, and were marked as such.

    There are some Fest visors in this thread which show the appropriate markings and RZM tags:

    Thank you for the reply. Does the tunic and pants look ok?

    They also should have RZM labels. Without them, it is likely only the buttons and the tailor tag are authentic.

    Bob, I noticed that there is a label on the inside of the tunic that has the DAF symbol on it. Have you seen any early versions that didn't have the RZM labels?

    That is the tailor tag I referring to. It has nothing to do with RZM labeling. I would be uncomfortable with anything with out a RZM label. Please remember the DAF was organized after the Nazis took power. Thus the need for the labels.

    as such this thread started, but it is not just for leaders only.
    All DAF members were allowed to wear it!

    To me it looks as the cap is not DAF at all. Look at the visor.
    DAF visors do not have the "decoration" over it! The tunic
    closes wrong, the lapels are wrong.
    There is no RZM tag in the inside required, but a label is hung
    to it (see the end of the manufacturers regulation from 1936:
    Anhängemarke).
