Authentic German WWII Officer 'Oberleutnant' Trench coat

This genuine private purchase early-war 'oberleutnant' highest ranking German officer brown leather trench coat from circa 1940 is a remarkable piece of history. A premium-quality item showcasing the era's attention to detail and craftsmanship in a small to medium size (approx UK 38-40).

History of the German Army

During WWII, officers were responsible for purchasing their uniforms, and this great coat exemplifies the type of private purchase items officers would seek out. While regulations dictated standard-issue garments, German officers often opted for privately purchased leather jackets like this one, as evidenced by period photographs and similar to the ones worn by German U-boat captains designed by Hugo Boss in the 1930s.

Crafted with multi-panel dark brown horsehide leather, this WW2 German Officers Trench Coat is an impeccable example of creative excellence. The full moleskin lining, long-length design, a lay-down and stand-up collar, and a double buckle fastening to the front further enhance the overall look. An internal body belt helps keep the coat snug to the body, while two side pockets with flap covers and interior pockets provide ample storage. The straight-cut sleeves are finished with epaulette-style cuffs for a classic, streamlined appeal.
