Default Kriegsmarine White Jumper

Hi all:
In most pictures I've seen of KM personnel, they're wearing blue jumpers with white stripes (usually under a coat). Can anyone tell me when the white jumpers with dark stripes were worn? Also, were they ever worn with the blue, waist-lenth coats (with double rows of gilt buttons)?

Ernst, the walking out dress whites were worn from 20 April through 30 September by order (MV 37, No 186) dated 4 July 1937. The blue or white shirt, or jumper, were both worn with the parade dress jacket you mention & many pictures exist showing all possible combinations of blue & white hats & shirts being worn with the parade jacket. It seems to have been up to the discrection of the commanding officer of that particular ship or duty station.
