Reproduction Waffen SS M42 Tarnjacke in blurred edge pattern camouflage. These pullover smocks are fully reversible, with custom woven and printed fabric, treated with Teflon water repellent finish.

The M42 first appears in WWII photos during the battle at Kursk in July 1943 (in very small numbers.) By the Summer of 1944, they are the most prevalent pattern seen. The "M42" or "Type II" (both names being collector inventions) featured improvements over the earlier designs of Tarnjacken. The waistline was raised several inches with two cargo pockets placed just below it, and sets of loops were added around the shoulders to hold foliage.

Like our other SS camouflage items, we copied authentic WWII examples, not other reproductions. Our smocks are the only ones that are as large as the real ones. The body is 58-60" around, sleeves are over 74" cuff to cuff and 20" in circumference. This is why they will easily fit up to 50" chest sizes. Yes, the WWII smocks were this big- if you're small they do fit like a garbage sack- just look in original photos to confirm this to be historically correct.

The Original Smock

Washing: We recommend hand wash or machine on "hand washables" setting, and hang dry. Machines and driers tend to leave highlights where the wrinkles rub on the sides of the tumbler.

Sizing: Size L is the same as originals. HUGE. They will fit 34-50" chests. We also have a Size XL for even buffer physiques.
