Please read here about the proper fit of the jacket.

With the introduction of the SS M-1937 field uniform, the LAH and Verfüngstruppe adopted the Army's field-gray color for the first time. The entire uniform was almost completely copied from the Army's M-1936 uniform. Trousers were identical to Army M-36 pattern and the blouse was also of the same pattern, except for the four button front (which could be worn open with a tie or closed), the field-gray collar, the internally hung lower pockets with slanting flaps, and the shallow top pocket flaps (which resurfaced later on some M42 style SS blouses). The blouse also incorporated the Army's new internal canvas load bearing suspenders, eliminating the need for the wide webbing suspenders previously used on the earth gray field uniform. Accordingly, the two belt hooks, one on each side, used on the earth-gray M34 field blouse were replaced with four.

This uniform, alongside the earth-gray M34 field uniform, was the predominant uniform worn by the troops of the new LAH and Verfügungstruppe (later Das Reich) Divisions from the invasion of Poland through the end of the early stages of the campaign in Russia (1939-1941). The new Totenkopf and Polizei Divisions were mostly dressed in Army M36 uniforms. In 1940, the SS pattern changed to an exact copy of the M36 Army style with patch pockets and dark green collar.

The M34 earth-gray uniforms were ordered to be pulled out of field service in mid-1941, but field-gray M37 patterns continued in battle until all stocks were exhausted, with some examples turning up in amazingly late war photos, especially since this blouse was no longer produced after early 1940.

Lost Battalions SS M37 field blouse is made with all the details of the original with nothing forgotten.

We decided to remove this jacket from our catalog due to low sales but the interest still existed and we have made a few since its removal on a "custom order" basis. Unlike our other jackets that we manufacture here in quantity, this jacket will be made "one off" from the exsisting patterns we have here. The turn around time is 6 months from the time the order is entered in the system and there are no returns or exchanges on this item once the jacket it cut.

The jacket includes internal suspenders, an enlisted sleeve eagle, enlisted collar tabs, and enlisted infantry-piped shoulder straps. All insignia is sewn on here. Please contact us about any additional insignia options.
