WWII German Army DAK Afrika Korps Tropical Uniform Motorcycle Overcoat Jacket - Sand Khaki Tan
This WWII motorcycle protective coat (Kradmantel) was introduced in 1934 and designed to be worn over the standard field uniform and equipment, so they were cut quite large. These coats were quite popular amongst troops for their stylish appearance and functionality. They were commonly worn by non-motorcycle personnel in spite of regulations. This model is made of a heavy canvas and features correct field grey buttons, back adjustment strap, zinc dish buttons and colored wool collar.

How to measure yourself for a WWI or WWII uniform
If your US fitted cap or EU hat size is not known, to determine your hat size, measure the circumference around your head, keeping the tape level and firm, across the temples and above the eyebrow ridges. Measure circumference of head just above top of ears. Wrap tape gently around head making certain tape lies midway on your occipital bone (that little bump in the middle of the back of your head). Don't pull the tape too tightly or your hat will fit that tightly. Measure 2 or 3 times to be accurate.
Chest (Across Nipples)
Measure yourself (LOOSELY) around the fullest part of your chest, with your hands by your side, and your chest expanded. Keeping the tape measure level. Have someone else do measuring for you.
Waist (Belly Button)
Measure yourself (LOOSELY) around the natural waistline (that is your belly button).
Inseam (Inside Leg)
Measure yourself from the crotch to where your trousers normally sit on your shoe.
