Insanely rare piece. The top of the top for SS camo collectors, for sure.

There's nothing custom, one off, or tailored about this. Besides the Meyer and Möhnke gang, these suits were initially issued to SS GJR 11 RH in 1943 in Karelia. Photos show a series of guys wearing these suits, tarnmuetzen with veils, and gummistiefel meeting with Dietl. There are also several other photos of them in wear with Nord, from personal albums. Incredibly rare prototype of printing camouflage on wool fabric.

Admittedly, I also think it's an awesome looking uniform, radically different from anything else

I remember we already had an in depth discussion on this model tunic in both camo and field gray wool. But for the life of me I can't remember the title of the thread. If someone can find it please post it here so some of the other members can read up and be in the know.

When a picture of the grey version showed up it was a revelation

An awesome set of camouflage! ! !

I would be damned proud to command a crack Company of Waffen SS Panzer grenadiers or Fallschirmjägers wearing said camouflage uniforms and webbed equipment with automatic weapons and sniper rifles.

For those who think this is a clown suit, I respectfully suggest you read up on the use and development of camouflage clothing by the Waffen SS. They were thirty years in advance of other nations.

Hi,

for the sake of the discussion, here are a "few" better pictures of the uniform set, taken from the Beaver book and the Rock Island Auction website, pictures courtesy of them.

See You

Vince

A custom made garment that possibly was greatly altered from a standard one.

New to collecting ss camo? And or lived under a rock the past decades?

I have said before
The Blured edge pattern is the most complex of the war
When I began learning about camouflage it baffled me
But when you see sunlight on the ground through a summer leafed tree it becomes obvious as that is the effect
The art of the defused print is amazing

The first be pieces I had printed on an oak underlay were picklated
Then on a smock were a murky print
Others were half tone
Yet more were misty
Then the winter prints were slushy
Then you could count the small dots in the half shades


Great complex artist design print entirely based in nature

Hi,

here are two screenshots of the video which link was given by HORYIOSHI in the previous topic.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBtwY0gatpY

It shows Wilhelm Monhke with a similar camo tunic to the one weared by Kurt Meyer.

See You

Vince

Who ever it was that sewed the waistband on was having a bad day.
It's about as straight as a banana!
