    Nice, Nick. Can you please tell me why some have the parallel black stripes and some don't?

    Nice catch. I like the tropical stuff for some reason.

    Tempted to buy this book:

    AFRIKA CORPS
    A pictorial study of Tropical cloth caps, uniforms & insignia of the German army in North Africa 1940-1943 by Daniel Fisher.


    If anybody can recommend it, pls let me know.

    (OT mention of book. Nick, let me know if you want it deleted, so as not to 'pollute' your thread)

    Nice Nick!
    I saw this for sale as well. When I bought mine, the seller had two left, so I bought them both.
    To answer Tom's question, I do not believe that I have seen a tropical example without the black stitching.
    Congrats,
    Ralph.

    Tom, does your example have two rows of stitching along the edge of the chevron? I believe that one row was to hold the fold and the second to fasted to the cloth. On the tropical examples, the black stitching holds the fold and the white is to fasten to the background cloth.
    Ralph.

    "Update"
    I just went and checked my examples and found that the black stitching is incorporated right into the chevron as it wraps around at the end and goes under the fold.

    Ralph, mine is not a tropical chevron, merely posted to show difference. I was always under the impression that the black stripe was part of the weave.
