    Field/Tailor Made Camo Items

    I've decided to start a new thread of my own on Field made tunics, shirts, Trousers, Caps instead of continuing to post on another members thread in the Fallschirmjaeger forum.

    Here is a new pickup and I have several others on the way to me. Feel free to post or re-post any of your field made camo pics and items that you own as I will probably do the same.

      Oz....Thank you for saying that as it is much appreciated. I would like to point out and emphasize that the intent of this thread is to post original photos of Field made camo and Field made items that collectors actually own and possess.

      I do not want to take away from another thread that was started by Jeroen wo2 on Field Made Items with the subject title of "Post your Field made Photos". I see a difference between the two threads as many of the photos being posted on Jeroen's thread are taken from other sources....websites, books, Archive photos and of course some original photos owned by collectors mixed in and also do not include actual field made Camo items.

            Here is a recent photo that I won on Ebay....unfortunately this photo never made it out of the Bundespost that the seller took it to as it was stolen from that post office under registered letter RG642334385DE. Seller lives in Massbach Kreis Bad Kissingen and he is returning the money I paid for the photo as it was done by bank transfer. If anyone sees it for sale anywhere else please let me know.

              Shame ! a very nice photo ! Thieves at post offices all over the world are getting out of hand ! Many of them know militaria is valuable and also know who the dealers are from their area. Tom

                THis will certainly turn out to be an awesome thread. I am adding my photo which shows what has been suggested as men wearing what are LW ground troop smocks that are tucked in or cut off.

                I cannot imagine they are tucked in as that would be a butt-load of material to tuck into the trousers and it would bunch up in strange places. These have to be either modified smocks or field/tailor made from scratch.

                In the close up you can see some great details of the eagle, buttons and shoulder boards. Note the wool and camo type boards.

                  Bill,
                  Sorry about the loss of the photo. I am going through that with a Holland shipped item.

                    Oz....The thing that really torques me off is that the photo never even made it out of the post office where it was taken to be posted...so thieves are really getting bold. It was registered and stolen at the same post office. Many of my photos sent by registered mail (over 30 or so) from Germany have disappeared in the "black hole" between Frankfurt and New York since I returned back to the US in January 2012. Several never made it out of customs in NYC. Which really puzzles me as they are only photos? I never had a problem once they made it out of New York enroute to me.

                      Oz and I apparently competed against each other as I won the other two photos out of this small group.

                      Here are some closeups of the same LWFD soldiers...The Jackets may have been modified but not sure as they are wearing Jump trousers which are quite roomy...one thing they are not are field made LWFD Jackets. My photo shows a bit more detail on the HBT Camo shoulder straps.

                          I don't think it is a field division jacket reworked. The collar on this jacket is not as wide compared to the field division jacket which leads me to believe it is a field made piece in Zeltbahn done by a unit tailor.
