Officers M38 Heer Feldmutze in field grey complete with insignia and panzer waffenfarbe soutache.
This is reproduction of an unusual variation of the panzer M38 cap, in that it is in field grey instead of the standard black colour. Originals in field grey are hard to find.
This is different to the enlisted mans cap as it has silver aluminium trim around the crown and on the front of the cap also the insignia differs as the bevo badges are made with aluminium silver thread.
The standard German Army Infantry field cap at the beginning of WW2 was the M38 field cap or side cap. It was first worn in 1935 by the German Army and was eventually replaced in 1943 by the M43 Feldmutze.
The Officers M38 feldmutze is sometimes referred to as the M35, M38, feldmutze, field cap or side cap.
This quality field cap is made in Germany by EREL and has the pink inverted chevron which is called a soutache and denotes the branch of service of the wearer in this case pink for panzer. It also has the correct two piece Bevo insignia professionally sewn on the front which is the Army eagle and swastika and the cockade so it is ready to wear.
Made by EREL in Germany.
The Robert Lubstein company is better know by its brand EREL. In WW2 the EREL factory was contracted to make hats for the German military and you can still find original war time hats with the EREL mark inside them today. In fact many reference books show original war time hats made by EREL and in these books you can clearly see the EREL brand marks inside them.
Amazingly the EREL company is still making hats in Germany today! so what is better than having a reproduction German hat made by one of the original hat makers in WW2. These EREL caps are made with high quality fabrics just like the war time hats you cant really have any better.
As these hats are made in Germany, under current German laws they are not allowed to sell them with insignia on them. So we have high quality insignia made and we then have a tailor in the UK to expertly sewn the insignia on.
So with this cap you are getting a high quality hat and high quality badges.
