The Wehrmacht is about to unveil its September 1939 men’s collection, and this year the focus is on simplicity of form, light fabrics and neutral colors. Here is a glimpse of what you will soon be seeing on the runway in Paris… unless the Allies can prevent it!
Gliding silently like a shadow through the undergrowth, here comes the most sharply dressed sharpshooter on the Western Front. Notice the practical pockets in the front of the windbluse for ammo (and snacks), and the exclusion of all unnecessary accessories. The Recon soldier travels light, trading firepower and supplies for stealth and speed. No shiny helmet to give him away in the moonlight, but an M43 field cap, or bergmütze.
It’s a shame you probably won’t get the chance to really look at this stylish new uniform before its wearer puts an 8mm bullet between your eyes.
