Elsenau used only German made 100% wool fabric, , by a mill that made it during the War. It looks and feels like the real, also it matched colour and thicknes with original tunics. It's absolutely the best thing on the uniform market.
Same with Italian made rayon lining, custom dyed thread, buttons painted with correct shades of feldgrau and blaugrau... etc.

Patterns was copied from disassembled original tunics and German documents.


All small details are present like: bias tapes, and reinforcements fabrics between wool and lining in place of eyeletholes, buttonhole panel

sa



Buttonholes – thats the weakest point of all reproduction tunics. Elsenau makes correct buttonholes - cut before, then embroidered it.
Check below differences between original buttonhole and China made

Comparison between Elsenau Militaria made and original feldblusen

Elsenau is on facebook.
They are very pricey and a long wait.
If you want very nice ( not the best) but very nice reproduction tunics, you should visit schusters.ru , pantherstore or nestof.pl
