SS M42 Tunic

Now available in three different lengths. See below for details.

New generation of reproduction WWII German Feldblusen, made by our contractor using "Texled" patterns. These uniforms are not available from any other vendor! The patterns and grading were made using both original uniforms and wartime German specifications and sizing tables- and I own them- they are here in my office, not fantasies.
The fit and finish is superior to the other imported Feldblusen- No sky high belt hook holes, no suit coat shoulders, no pockets placed in helter-skelter fashion. The fabrics are copied from original swatches- no more olive green wool, pink lining, or "mystery cloth". The shell is 80/20 wool and the lining acetate. The belt hook holes are the correct size so hooks will actually fit through them. For some mind-numbingly exciting reading, see the "How German Tunics were Sized" page.

SS Model 1942 Feldbluse: The "M42" (model numbers are collector inventions, not WWII German terms) service tunic was manufactured from 1942-45 and issued to all units of the Waffen SS until the end of the War. They feature simplified patch pockets, rayon lining, belt hook hangars, split cuffs, first aid dressing pocket, and hook and eye at the collar. The SS M42 had different specifications than that of the Heer- namely a wider collar, 5 button front, longer lining, shorter skirt, different belt hook hangars and 8 belt hook eyelets rather than 12. Markings are the correct SS number series, not Heer.

Color: These are the distinctly grayer shade typical of mid-late War uniforms. Our M43 Keilhosen (ATF) are the same color as these uniforms. It is very close to our "605" shade used for our Texled caps.

M40 tunics shown. This style similar.

We now have Shorts, Regulars and Longs. Many reproductions are ridiculously long for most people. Particularly those 5'8" and less often look like they are wearing a greatcoat, with sleeves to their fingertips. In WWII, German tunics came in literally dozens of size combinations- we learned their sizing system intimately while making our Texled uniforms. The German military based their jacket lengths on one's torso measure- the kurze Taille. This is the distance from the base of the collar to the narrowest part of the waist, where the belt hook holes (and hence the belt) will fall. Each size nominally corresponds to a range of heights. Below is a table with our sizing. Like the Germans in WWII, chest/ tunic size does not effect the length. In other words, a Small short has the same torso and sleeve lengths as an XXL Short.


Length Height Range *Torso Length **Sleeve Length
Short 5'4"-5'8" 40cm 59cm
Regular 5'9"-6'0" 44cm 64cm
Long 6'1"-6'4" 46cm 69cm
*Torso Length = base of collar to the level of the center belt hook hole (the total length of the back is about 25cm more)
**Sleeve Length = shoulder seam (where the sleeve attaches) to the cuff
