There's an interesting article in Der Erste Zug about the correct fit for a tunic:



Most people buy too big. The jacket should be a snug fit and the cuffs should stop at the wristbone. You could argue that the undernourished state of the average Landser towards the end of the war and the "what we got is what you get" attitude of quartermasters would make a baggy tunic OK but if you want a parade ground look it's worth reading.

Aye the Jäger idea is obviously playing second fiddle to the Infanterie, which is understandable. Whilst I still have my Jäger-badged tunic, if a certain somebody makes me do it, I may well convert it to a Pionier one.

Heh... and I did notice that one "Jäger" is actually a Gebirgsjäger! :wink:

Very good article... which is now going to force me to go and try on all my tunics to check the fit! :roll:

The only tunic which fits me correctly is my pirschen one. My sturm is too big. I now wish I hadn't read that article. :cry:

Nah I'll skim over that article, I'm a million miles away from 20 years old, skinny and deprived of food. Aside from accentuating height, that cut accentuates the gut, so I'll stick to oversize and blame the QMS :wink:

Hello, I have purchased an M40 tunic and trousers with a Ski cap from Stoneliegh the other weekend and ended up watching 'Where Eagles Dare' last night, just wondering if people are still protraying the Jager look and if so, can I join you, this is my first dab in to German loadouts. :good:

Hi Paul, I'm not sure if there are more than one or two who portray Jäger now. Nothing to stop you doing it, of course, but the majority of us do Infanterie.

Either way, best advice is to get some BeVo generic Litzen (collar tabs), so you can portray any unit - just a change of shoulderboards required, in most cases.

Cool, I've got a set of Inf shoulderboards with it anyway, I'm going to build up to it anyway, Just need to sort out webbing and get my helmet finished with a proper chin strap and a cover to hide the repair marks

Cheers

Cool. If you're going for a helmet cover, splinter pattern is best.
