That’s where these military overseas caps started out, on Deutsch köpfe. Slightly shorter than the U.S. garrison cap, and with a jaunty curve, front to back, they’re in dark blue-gray with orange piping and a German army insignia on the front. We’ll pick a pair in (2) different sizes 58-63, which is approx 7-1/4 to 7-7/8 on American heads, but the envelope design gives them some size leeway.
Add the glitter of bright, brass-tone aluminum buttons, 9/16" dia, to tops, jeans, purses, backpacks. The buttons are new and convex, with a stationary 1/8" sewing loop on the back, and an embossed star and small hammer and sickle design on the front. All right, so they were from the Soviet military (circa late 1970s). The design is very discreet. And we weren't the ones who had to tear down a wall, so you can consider these the spoils of a cold war. (Lots and lots of spoils. Left-leaning artists who want to cover a giant canvas or Soviet statue with them should call for a volume discount.)
Genuine U.S. military surplus athletic supporter, unused, never issued, brand new, still in the box, we swear on our mother's combat boots. This military supporter does date from approximately the Korean War era, but some things never change. Size medium, with a 3" wide waist-band.
Must be a bunch of cold kopfs on German parade grounds, because we've got a boatload of these Deutche military berets. Wool, with leather trim and very small holes for mounting unit badges, they've been on a few heads, so they might have a touch of authentic Deutcheschmutz. Red in color and most in Euro sizes 58 (7-1/4") to 61 (7-5/8") but they're meant to be a snug fit.
With Austrian troops climbing ev'ry mountain and wearing these fatigue caps. In dark olive drab, with little vent holes and that Austrian army target-like red and white circle logo on the peak. Pre-worn in Austria for your convenience. In Euro size 54/55, which is US small, 6-3/4 to 6-7/8.
These French military field suspenders are olive drab canvas and are marked “PARIS 1978” inside the yoke. (And the yokes on you.) In an H-shape, they have 1-7/8” wide x 10-3/4” long straps on the front, narrowing to 3/4” wide adjustable straps for another 6-1/2” with clips on the end. The back has a pair of 7/8” wide x 27” long straps with hook-and-loop fabric on the back to close on itself. Front straps have a D-ring each for French grenades that we don’t carry.
The digital boonies call for a digital boonie hat. Ours is cotton with adjustable chin straps and a headband divided into a dozen sections so you can clip stuff onto it. New, from Mil-Spec™. We’ll pick one in a size from 7 to 7-3/4.
One size definitely fits all in this mega-oversized German and NATO winter and ski-troop camo poncho. High quality white cotton with a staggered spruce camo pattern. Full length, with a hood and side ties, it measures 56" across and 36" from the collar down. Made to be worn over a full complement of military gear. We like it for winter hunting with bow, gun or camera, or just for a handy apres-bath cover-up. Brand new, never issued.
