German / Finnish fireman's wool tunic #3
A German made tunic used by the Finnish firemen. Most-very-fockin'-likely wartime manufacture with Wehrmacht size markings and everything, along with SA-Int stamps on the other side.
To the best of our knowledge the Finns ordered black-ish tunics for firemen before/around the war years. Unfortunately we couldn't find any clear dates, but there's a very crisply clear Wehrmacht size notation and Finnish army SA-Int property marks, along with Finn size 50 C, which means Medium, BUT this is more like a EU 46 / Small. Measured chest circumference of the garment itself is 96 cm, waist circumference 90 cm, sleeve length from the shoulder seam 60 cm.
In superb shape. The first aid bandage pocket button is missing and there's just some little wear inside the collar. The cuff buttons have been removed and the cuff split is just sewn together. This seems to be some official Finnish modification. The condition is so good you'd never guess this tunic was made so long ago.
We got just a handful of these, and will sell a couple of them.

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
