Hello Robert,

I would say the wool kepis are harder to find than the cotton twill, although SA kepis are always somewhat difficult to find compared to other period headgear.

Actually, corduroy breeches were authorized to be worn by the SA, NSKK, and NSDAP (at least) during the RZM period, so these are usually labeled. I've seen several matching corduroy SA tunics over...

More thoughts on this man's uniform--the spring clips on the ends of the suspenders appear to be the early style and he's wearing the box buckle which was phased out in 1933 in favor of the open...
