The inner pocket button hook seems to me to be made of synthetic material. I am not an expert on these items at all. Can anybody identify this jacket? It is dark blue. It has no stamps or maker marks what so ever. Btw, he at sometime sew on Wehrmacht buttons....

    I would not swear to it, as the color of the picture isn't the best (not your fault, just the way it is), but it looks to me to be an East German enlisted dress uniform jacket. It is certainly possible that some Soviet personnel ended up being issued DDR gear, but...

    The buttons more than the color, and the general cut cause me to lean toward German, and the general shade causes me to say probably DDR.
