    Default Early brown SS shirt

    Hello to all

    That's something I would like to get one day, an early brown SS shirt with the black kepi if possible...

    Question : Was there a unique variant ? It seems not, I have a book mentioning they had black buttons on them but when I was in Munich the one shown in the museum had some silver buttons...

    Do some of you have a complete one (or more) on bust (or not) to show ? If so, please don't hesitate to post your pictures

    An example of an officer's shirt with the proper black leather buttons. Genuine examples of the SS brownshirt are extremely rare and often faked from old SA shirts. The one you mention in the museum is likely not correct unless it is a very early variant. This shirt belonged to a man named Fritz Kulse. He evidently only used this shirt for less than a year as he no longer was attached to Abschnitt XVI after his first year. He also never was promoted higher than his first rank orf sturmfuhrer

    Thanks a lot for these pictures Bob
    Do you have a picture of the armband ?

    I don't have enough detailed books to compare early SS and early SA shirts. Are there a lot of differences ?

    The difference is just the buttons. I do not have an image of the cotton armband in my pictures.

    Great uniform display, Horst, but I have to ask-why is the flag behind the mannequins covered in plastic? We were always told that plastic was anathema for long term storage of cloth items. (The facial expression of his buddy the bugler is priceless,btw! )
