Gday,

Im having issues finding a qaulity M37 Crusher cap for my Joachim peiper look.
The ones Im finding online the brims are too large or too low, or the cap is still as a board.
Does anyone have a good crusher look hat the same as peiper would have had that can point me in the right direction.

Would be appreciated guys

Otherwise this will be the one I will probably buy

Andrews pretty spot on with his caps, message him with your concerns and requirements I'm sure he'll sort you out

As John says, James Brown is the man all my caps are from him, and all his caps are made to order by Janke who is the very best!

Most of these cap don't come already "crushed", perhaps thats why
you have had difficulty finding one, you have to remove the stiffener
and crown wire first in most caps to achieve the "crusher look", this
was how it was done originally as well

Funny you should say that ! Having spoken with Herr Brown ( Extra Klasse ) , Herr Janke is doing me a Reichswehr cap - not cheap ( £150 ) , but I have several others of his , and they are very, very good 8)
