SS visor arrived yesterday

Article about: Hi guys. I am new to this forum and hope that I can learn over here and also share my collection. I collect WH, SS and British airborne. Here photo's of my last acquisition, an Italian cloth

    From what I've learn't from Italian collectors over the years, there is a subtle difference between the fabric shown here and the type they generally consider "100% Italian" and known to them specifically.

    The subject deserves it's own thread and would cover much ground but as yet, I've found that the interest isn't there yet.

    Hi, Always nice to see original ss caps, and welcome to the forum.

    cheers

    ...and we have more original SS caps on our site by dint of some very hard work as well as huge expenditure of treasure.

    There is a sticky here from our lost Slovak who tried to analyze the variety of textiles used in SS peaked caps.

    As excellent as that thread was, it only describes this cloth as "Italian".
    From numerous discussions with my rather feisty friend Manny and which make perfect sense, thousands of types of fabric weave were produced during the period, not all that are obviously not German are definitely Italian either..

    I see items (uniforms mostly) on obscure dealers sites made from Italian cloth. I have mostly avoided them. (Foolishly?)

    Nice cap though, great condition!

    Lots of fakes in "Italian" cloth Pat, that's why.

    These are Kleiderkasse vintage . . . and likely, "Italian" variety cloth.
