    I noticed that the brown SS service shirt is a quite long piece of apparel. I don't understand this. What is the purpose of the seemingly unusual length of the shirt? Wouldn't this have been unpractical?

    Shirts were generally of a somewhat longer cut back in those days compared to today, but good-quality shirts are always of a generous length, simply because it prevents the bottom of the shirt from riding upwards and slipping out of the trousers' waistband.

    A logical answer!......
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    and the breeches had a so called Nierenschutz, that is, they rode much higher than the lousy things called pants today.

    Clothing was cut with generous fabric to it.

    There were several different shirts, in fact, as this list indicates: the popeline shirt with removable collar, the patent Indathren dyed cotton shirt, the sport shirt with the long skirt; and the classic SA short brown shirt with the Bobi Haken. I own all varieties of this long shirt worn under the tunic, but none with the RZM/SS label.
    damit, basta.

    Perhaps sometimes this was not always the case.

    The presence of Anna Semenovich would appear to be sufficient to neutralize all trouser security protocols.

    In need of a good pressing and some starch but it will do for an example.
    Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Kommunist.
    Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat.
    Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter.
    Als sie die Juden holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Jude.
    Als sie mich holten, gab es keinen mehr, der protestieren konnte.
