    I wonder how many times this poor tunic has been renovated….? Please look at the pockets. the shadow of the cuff title and the buttons - its the same tunic.
    I think I liked it better in this configuration

    On Miltary Antiques Stockholm, we can read:

    The tunic has a shade from a former sleeve eagle and the wolfsangel collar tab to. This tunic is in our opinion completely restored. Still the restoration is very well made with correct threads, sewing techniques and most important original insignias. All match very well together and the restoration work is professionally done.

    The Tunic is without a Doubt original, but complete restored, Pockets added, who knows when and that is End of Story for this Piece. All you can do is look what cost a SS Tunic in bad shape plus the Effects and then you see if the Price is good or not, more this Thing is not worth.

    Very interesting input about the pockets and the seams inside- Devils really are in the details.

    I think it would be easy to say in person buy comparing thread, traces of previous sewing lines, button holes and comparing pocket flap backing to lining.

    I also agree that wool weave is different but I have seen variations within this so-called Italian wool or nettle cloth, I’m not convinced all of this dark green rough wool cloth was even Italian in origin, but even if it was I bet variations existed
    Here is the picture showing previous stitching lines.

    I don't have a problem with the dealer's description which seems fair enough but I don't think there's a lot of evidence that this combination of insignia was worn much if at all. IMHO, if the tunic is original then this is worth the sum of it's parts, and not more.

    Sorry, but those pockets are not original to this tunic. On the pictures of the lining you can clearly see where the previous seams of the original pockets ran. The buttonholes are completely different from those on the button tab of the tunic, they don't even look like they were made with a proper machine. The fabric of the pockets also doesn't look like original italian wool, judging by the weave, it looks like reproduction wool. Yes, producers very rarely made wool uniforms from different wool shades, but they never had such a stark contrast and they were never made from two completely different fabrics. So I'm 99% sure that those pockets are restored.

    Mismatched pockets and or flaps are for sure known as are sleeves and panels. It should also be considered that when new the mismatched pieces probably looked very close to the body in color but the two fabrics faded at different rates. The color under the title bears this comment out to some degree.

    Hi guys, im a bit confused about the comments.
    First question, clear and simple. IMO yes fairly common to see different cloth types used on later war produced SS tunics.

    Everything is in the sale description. Totally restored tunic, clear ghost shade from previous cuff title. The shade is also photographed.

    The seller thought the tunic was untouched and was originally bought from another well known dealer. Good restoration job but far from perfect which we detected.
    Told the seller and described in the description.

    ”Hand inspection” What needs a hand inspection?
    ”I wonder about everything about the tunic” What???

    Just to put it simple. Original ss tunic, original insignias. Restored to the tunic. Cuff title missing. Clear signs of previous one.

    Uniforms were recycled for repair to extend their use.
    May even be a shadow of a cuff title there.
    Will need a hands on inspection.

    When I look at the tunic it looks like the insignias on the arm are sewn too high …?

    Not only you Tunic itself is good, but total restored. Who know what this was when it was made, maybe Netherland....maybe XYZ. But the Dealer clearly write that the Tunic is complete restored. Here is the Link:
