help building SS M36 uniform

Post by titanium »

A few years ago, I purchased a very nice reenactors reproduction officer's wool M36 SS uniform. No insignias or patches. Recently I've wanted to finish the uniform, but I've really no idea where to begin. I just don't want to end up pairing the wrong shoulder tabs with the wrong collar tabs and etc. Any links, picture references, or helpful info in this area would be helpful! Thanks!

I'm a clean slate. I feel like I'm building a character of sorts, but I suppose I could just choose any since I am not fashioning it after a specific historical figure... I will need to research more and post.

The hat that came with it does have the eagle up top and totenkopf below already.

The hat has standard SS symbols , the same for all SS units . You need to be very specific in what you want to do , after all , doing a " generic " SS officer is pretty much impossible I'd say . Find a division you feel you're interested in ( for me it's Prinz Eugen and Handschar ) , research that division , look at original pictures of that division , go from there . Buy the best quality stuff , buy it once .
