A very interesting tropical uniform grouping manufactured in 1944/45 . The tunic is a classic M43 design. It was manufactured from tropical coth of Italian origin and comes with fully originally attached insignia. Late war machine-embroidered breast eagle which was "zick-zack" attached by machine. The machine-woven collar tabs were machine-attached as well. It looks that the collar tabs and the breast eagle were attached with the same thread. 
The yellow piped shoulder boards are very special. Not only,  because one is "43" dated but also because they look to be manufactured from the water-resistant material used for life vests. The piping was made from silk. The color is more for "Kavallerie" than for "Nachrichtentruppe". 

Fine brownish silk lining. Large size markings as well as a "977" factory marking.

All buttons are complete and originally attached. Buttons show full factory color.

Medium size. Condition 1. No signs of wear and age. One small hole to the neck (just below the collar).

Excellent straight trousers manufactured from the same tropical khaki cloth. "M44" as well as size marked grey-purple cotton lining. Complete with all buttons and the belt.
Impossible to upgrade.

Waist: XXcm Length: XXcm

A very rare matching uniform grouping documenting late war "non textbook" uniform history! Excellent condition.
