SS Ladies Evening Jacket?
I'm not thinking of buying this item, but thought I'd post it as I'm interested to hear other people's opinions. What I've read about the SS over the years would not lead me to believe that such a garment would exist and I've never seen such a thing before and so I'd tend to think that it is a fantasy lash up - am I wrong? The construction is quite odd with the apparent use of SS civilian lapel pins as fasteners.
I've never visited the website before today but it was mentioned in another recent thread as the source of some bad SS cap badges.

Couple of good items. Most of it is junk IMO! Watch out here!
The tuxedo badge is a hideous fake. I'd like to see a closer picture of the 'Austrian party badge,' because genuine ones are extremely rare if it's what I think it is. In other words, that is almost certainly fake, too, not to mention that it would predate the RZM by some years.
Do they really think anyone would buy this based on the images supplied. I dread to think what they are asking for it. I have no idea if such an item existed but I doubt it and to me it looks to be a put together job comprising a number of items that might or might not be real.
its just an opinion.
Very, very silly thing. I did not want to say so elsewhere, but the site has indistinct images of what is plainly a heap of junk.
No, you're not.
A laughable piece, although quite creative in a crazed, Frankensteinian sort of way.
The continuation of Kitsch by other means.

(Come to think of it, I would buy that one.)
