German WW2 Waffen SS M40 officer side cap field grey wool - Erel by Robert Lubstein
- Product Code: BSTWSSFZ
OFFIZIER FELDMUTZE M40
The best M40 side cap reproduction on the market, made in Germany by Erel of Robert Lubstein the famous headwear in Berlin, carried on by his heirs. We can said that this is not a replica but the contemporary production made with the same material, with the same methodologies and the same models that the company used before and during the Third Reich.
The M40 side cap made in feldgrau cloth was adopted by the units of the Waffen SS from the 1940 on the model already adopted by the Luftwaffe. Both the troop and the NCOs and the officers used the same type of cap, with the difference that for the officers a thin silver cord surrounded the edge of the ear flap. For the officers, when they did not fit a troop cap, used to privately procure the cloth from affiliated private tailors or HKK warehouses with slightly higher quality products. Exactly like at Erel where you could buy a sachet in excellent feldgrau cloth to be used in the field completed by the friezes that the officer most preferred as model and material.
