But first, photos from my city where I grew up, learned, live and work (then and now)

One of all original tunics from my  collection, was published in "Feldbluse" book.



That is a period M43 Feldbluse being dissected, unfortunately without breast pockets and with lot of repairs and holes. One of customers ordered same size reproduction tunic as my old disassembled original Feldbluse.



Another M43 Feldbluse, this time very small, 86cms in chest, without lining, breast pockets, buttons and lining, many moth holes and rust stains. It was never used and still with paper tag from depot inside lower pocket.



After  a pattern are ready, they are traced directly onto cloth with chalk(Same as during WWII) and cut by fabric cutter.
One or sometimes two tunics are cut in same time, below M43 Italian wool Feldbluse:

Working on M41 WH Feldbluse:


Markings for buttonholes sometimes are still visible on tunics.


M43 Feldbluse made of Italian wool, and M43 Feldmütze made of 100% original fabrics, insignia, buttons etc. I  was used this set in 2019 in the biggest EU reenactment event "Montys men 2019" in UK. ( 3 days and nights of  heavy use)

M43 Feldmütze visor stiffener and die for clicker press, was made based on disassembled original cardboard from damaged salty M43 cap. German used split leather and cardboard in their M43 field caps. My original cardboard internal stiffener was broken, because of heavy wear and use.


Unfortunately sometimes it is hard to find fabrics that match original stuff, so they need to be custom made, like this lining for pre and early war uniforms, caps and insignia.



Some errors spotted, bellow: German original mint M43 Feldblusen...
