Description

​Extreme rare Kriegsmarine U-Boat crew uniform ensemble( U-Boot Päckchen), garment for work and service in the U-boat. Cotton tunic and trousers. As shown in original period pictures this uniform can be worn with insignia or without. Mostly inside the boat the jackets were used  without insignia due small free spaces and chance to be hooked by something with the shoulder straps.  The tunic, however has traces from  shoulder straps, loops and buttons. It could be easily restored by the wish of new owner, but we prefer to sell it as it was found. Both the tunic and the trousers belonged to the same crewmate and has the same name labels: Schultz P-J. Some people think that this uniforms shown in the pictures are British battledress uniforms used by German's U-boat crews, but they are mistaken.  This example of the garment is for sure made in Germany during ww2 from period correct German cotton cloth. All details (sewing technologies, cuts) and buttons confirm that it's 3rd Reich period  production. The tunic and the trousers have been well worn and have some minor repairs. All buttons are intact and we've found in the breast pocket two spare buttons. In the left pocket we found a ticket to the local military base concert:  "Lager 2, Vorst, Konzert and date 28 DEZ 1943 year". No markings.Size of this incredible uniform is around 50 european, and fit to 175-180 cm long man, breast is around 100 cm, cuff 62 cm
