welcome to best fake watches shop.

Third Reich hats

The hats offered on this page are new-made reproductions. Most are produced by a man in Germany who is a tailor/hat maker. He possesses the right vintage machines, materials and expertise to produce hats that are unsurpassed in quality…even by the originals themselves.

Most of the following hats have been custom ordered. Each is one-of-a-kind. The hat you would buy would be the hat which is in the photographs. I do not carry a stock of all sizes and branches-of-service.

These hats represent; for the most part, extremely expensive originals which have become cost prohibitive to the general collecting world. Yet they are offered here (as reproductions) priced higher than the Chinese/Pakistani made copies which are on the market but the quality of workmanship and materials makes them a world apart.

Here are some features which are common to all the hats offered here:

– The visors are made from genuine Vulkan fibre and have been cut and molded by the hat-maker himself. Hats with genuine Vulkan fiber visors are available NOWHERE else.

– The sweat shields are made from Genuine Celluloid. NOT plastic. Nobody produces celluloid any more and it’s industrial use has been completely over-taken by modern materials. The manufacturer of this hat has contracted  a supply to be made exclusively for himself. Hats with genuine celluloid sweat shields are available NOWHERE else.

– All materials used in these hats as well as the threads which bind them together do NOT react to UV light.

They are the better than anything that is available anywhere on the internet. As far as I know, I am the only one who is offering them.

 Item 157 Algemeine SS officer’s peaked hat

This hat represents a private purchase type rather than one which would have been acquired through the SS Kleiderkasse and thus bears the maker identification inside the lining rather than the simple SS in a circle. It is constructed from a fine grade Black gabardine wool with a black gabardine felt cap band.  The visor is made from Vulkanfibre exactly as originals. (there are NO plastic components in this hat.)

 Item 114 Regimental standard, pioneer

I made the below photos while visiting the Red army Museum in Moscow in 2010. They show the pile of standards and banners captured by the Red Army in 1945; displayed under glass.

 

This is a very impressive reproduction of a banner for a Pioneer regiment. 32 X 22 inches. The detail of the embroidery rivals originals for quality and weight. At a glance, this banner might pass for an original if not for the exception of the fringe which; although very fine, is just a bit thicker than originals. I have compared this side by side with an original and the similarity is striking. Makes a perfect accent piece for any collection. $400.00
