H000780 PANZERJÄGER EM’S "M35 DRESS TUNIC. (Waffenrock M35)
BACKGROUND: The M35 dress tunic was introduced for wear by all ranks on June 29TH 1935 as the walking out, parade and ceremonial dress with the piped, stone grey long pants. The design of the M35 dress tunic was based on the Imperial German army’s service tunic but was a different color and generally of much higher quality. Originally all personnel were issued two M35 dress tunics but manufacture was discontinued in late 1939 or early 1940 and was to be reinstated at the successful conclusion of the war. Regulations of March 21ST 1940 stated that the M35 dress tunics that were no longer suitable for dress wear were to be modified and reissued to personnel of the replacement and reserve units for every day wear. Officers and certain senior NCO ranks were responsible for purchasing their own uniforms and as a result were allotted a clothing allowance through the army’s Kleiderkasse, (Clothing Account), system. The Officers and certain senior NCO’s could choose to purchase their uniforms from the armed forces clothing depots or to privately purchase garments of higher quality. Although enlisted personnel were issued their uniforms from government supplies they were also permitted to purchase privately tailored uniforms although the price may have been restrictive.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Private purchase, field-grey wool construction M35 dress tunic features a vertical, eight button front closure with single metal hook and eye positioned at the forward neckline and a lay down, blue/green badge cloth collar. All insignia and buttons look to be original period stitching. Very nice pair of "Panzerjäger" shoulder straps. Of Note: The chain stitched Gothic "P" indicated, Panzerjäger, which literally translated means "Armor hunter", but figuratively indicated "Anti-tank" personnel. Nice unit markings. Buttons are a combination of original and replaced stitching which is common on a worn item. The tunic is roughly a size 28" chest. Shows the expect light age and usage but overall very nice tunic.
