This M43 cap is made from original WWII production Italian camouflage cloth. After Italy’s withdraw from the war, stocks of Italian camouflage were seized by the Germans and fashioned into caps and uniforms for their own use. Much of this kit went to SS units, and was worn during the Normandy invasion. This particular cap is size 59, and was made here in the U.S. by an expert cap maker who is a long time collector of original German WWII caps. All the details are here, and you’ll never find a better reproduction. Perfect for a reenactor or collector.
