Third Reich - Heer General's breeches

Description

Nicely worn Wehrmacht Heer General's breeches. A fine privately purchased example with white cotton lining. The original tailor's name tag is still in place but washed out and very hard to read. Furthermore, there are is "TEARLE" and "GB 2022" written to the liner. Most probably postwar inventory notes.

All buttons are complete and period time attached. When looking to the reverse, you can see that the trousers were made smaller once. Old seams are visible. That certainly happened period time.

The red General piping to both sides were correctly attached by machine.

Original cords and loops in place.

Moth damage. Condition 2-

Waist: 92cm. Length: 106cm.
