    Clothing tags indicate a 1944 manufacture, there are marks to indicate a ribbon bar was attached above left breast, it shows wear, a couple of buttons replaced.

    I don't believe in my wildest dreams it's an original SS worn outfit with original insignia, but I really don't know abouut this leather uniform.

    Thanking You

    I believe that you have have a Kreigsmarine leather jacket and trousers, whether it's original or not I don't know. They were used by Panzer troops though, which maybe why somebody stuck the fake SS insignia on it.

    Looks like you have 3 choices- you could remove all of the insignia and use it as Kriegsmarine, or remove all of the insignia and replace it with original SS insignia (not cheap) or remove all of the insignia but put an original SS tunic under the leather with matching shoulder straps only on the coat.

    The choice is yours and there are a lot pictures of these things in wear, but it is a pity that someone added the horrible fake stuff to what looks like an original jacket.
