This is so sad, this man probably loves his uniform and loves to show it for people.
He is really proud of it and then it's just crap... I feel for this old man.
But if you are naive and dont want to take your time to study, you going to end up like this man.
When I see this video, I understand how thankful I should be to people here on the forum that are willing to teach.

The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
Quoting FB "I have never seen an authentic black uniform with "Das Reich" as a cuff title."
They should exist with the regimental titles Deutschland, Germania or Der Fuhrer.

Bob is right as ever. Another odd thread which leads nowhere and filled with the normal confusion that attends SS material in its sickening falsity.

The real things are very rare, and some of us struggle to deal with the differentiation between the authentic and the fake.
This enterprise of sifting the good from the bad and all the incessant name calling holds ever less appeal for me, but in this case, I could not be silent.
Maybe some persons are happy enough to have a copy of something and to luxuriate in the good tall yarn about it. The message is the medium, as it were.
Maybe that is the point, and all the effort I have devoted to details of authenticity and such are wholly beside the point.

SS Officers Uniform, Appointed for a Sturmbannfuhrer of the 3rd Totenkopfverbande "Thuringen", Label
It seems that the very same uniform appears on this site, but with different insignia. Note the bag lower pockets, the same medal loop holes, the collar style and the short, dragging sleeves.
