German WW2 Model 1940 Feldbluse.
The M40 or 1940 Model wool feldbluse tunic was worn by both the Waffen SS and the German Army (Heer) only the later tunics varied in style between the SS and Army.
By 1940 the German Army had started to change the design of the wool uniform in an effort to speed up production time and to cut production costs. Some of the more elaborate designs of the tunic where dropped the most obvious one being the green wool collars.
The M40 tunic was worn throughout Europe and can be seen in use on the Russian front. During the war some soldiers modified the M40 tunic by adding green wool onto the collars to make them look like the earlier M36 tunics, this could have been for several reason maybe to replicate the soldiers previous tunic, to make them look more like a veteran or just because they like the look of the green collar. The M40 was used by the Waffen SS and the Heer, just the insignia was different.
This M40 tunic only comes with a set of Heer Infantry shoulder boards so you can add your own insignia and if you need a waffen SS tunic you would need to change the shoulder boards also.
This quality M40 Waffen replica wool tunic has the original features including:
