L004473 OFFICER'S BREECHES. (Stiefelhose für Offiziere)

BACKGROUND: Unmounted Officers were permitted to wear breeches similar in style to the riding breeches worn by mounted EM/NCO’s. Officers breeches were the prescribed or optional type of pants for wear with the Service Dress, the Undress Uniform, the Reporting and the Parade dress uniforms. Officer and certain senior NCO ranks were responsible for purchasing their own uniforms and as a result were allotted a clothing allowance through the Luftwaffe’s Kleiderkasse, (Air-Force 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, Luftwaffe blue/grey, course wool/rayon blend construction breeches feature a vertical, four button French fly with an additional button positioned on the waistband. One of the fly buttons is missing. Name tag has been removed. One small hole to the front top, but otherwise very nice. I would guess late war construction because of the course wool used. The breeches are roughly size 32" waist.
