Interesting Rough SS Armband
I recently acquired this rough SS armband with an SS RZM Tag. The armband is interesting because of how it got so worn, I'm guessing just from not being taken care of and maybe a few moths got into it too.
No matter what shape these are in, they always make a statement. I believe FB still has quite the collection of these, still on the uniform.
This one is far from the uniform but maybe one day I'll put one in the collection.

Uh oh.....! It's the return of the much dreaded Horizontal Ribs!
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
Also, wouldn't moths attack the wool instead of the trim? Could this have been artificially aged?
The moths are good concerning Geometry.A circle,two triangles and two rectangles.
Well, I don't think moths got at the rayon and ripped it up I think that was just from poor care.
So, Let the debate begin? I think its good, but what about you guys?
Here is a photo of my other "bastard child"
As the horizontal ribbing in the black stripes is not very common, it was likely a variant used by a single manufacturer. An original and well used armband. The crittrers certainly ate well for a time.
LIFE'S LOSERS NEVER LEARN FROM THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS.
Well, I don't know how I keep getting these in my collection but I will keep looking.
