A great late war 1944 set which would have been for for "Reichsverteidigung" campaigns over Germany in 1944/45. Hard to find!
 
Pilot's leather flight jacket with fine purple fur collar. Original attached label which is size "Ia" and Reichsbetriebsnummer stamped as well as "1944" dated. Fine silk lining with a cloth inner pocket. When turning around you can read something like "Uffz Post" written to it. Very hard to read but this is definitely the pilot's name.
Removed breast eagle. Clear traces. Original attached buttons and "RiRi" zippers. One has the handle missing. Connection for electrically heating. 
Very soft leather! Moth damage to the fur collar.
Size. Condition 2.
 
Straight leather trousers. Three connection for electrical heating. Original attached label which is size "III" and Reichsbetriebsnummer stamped as well as "1944" dated.
Fine silk lining. All buttons are complete and look absolutely original attached. So do the zippers. The bottom leg zippers look to have replaced handles, one does look slightly damaged.
The leather is still very soft and there is no damage. A nicely worn set!
Waist: 96cm
Length: 110cm
Condition 2.
