History and product  details

Development the  SS panzer  jackets  started in  1949. Before  this  SS units  were issued  with the Army  version. Modifications  were  complete  by early  1941.  The  SS  panzer  wrap  featured  a more  rounded  collar  and a vertical front opening. Also it  featured  a single  panel to the  reverse.  These   changes  to the Heer  version  were   quite  noticeable  and gave  the  SS panzer  jackets  a distinctive  look.  The  wrap   featured   black  plastic  buttons  to the  collar which enabled  the  wrap  to be button  up  and closed  at the top via a metal eyelet. The lining were partially lined  with  grey cotton  twill. But Later  in the  war  this  was  replaced  with  black rayon, a type of artificial silk  because  of war shortages.

There  were a few manufacture  variations  made  during  the  war  but  the pattern  remained  basically  th same . Interestingly  the  Field  grey  SS  assault  gunners  wrap preceded  the Black panzer  wrap. Collar  insignia  was   standard  SS  runic   collar  tabs in cotton, some  very early  issue  were surrounded  by  rose pink piping. The SS  emblem(  eagle  and  swastika)  was  stitched  to the left  sleeve. This  was  the grey thread   variety. Black wool  shoulder boards(Schulterklappen) with  rose  pink piping  complete the  jacket.
