Enough Trial and Error.
Why should finding a collar tab in the correct size and thickness be such a hassle? After 7 pairs of collar tabs, I decided to pursue a new range based on dimension from the original ones. The result is a large collection of the infamous tabs, that fit perfectly the Fliegerbluse and Greatcoat.

We are impatient when waiting for an order. We also understand that delivery times around Christmas are at the worst. We understand perfectly.
And because we do, we are making the extra effort to get all orders out of the door as soon as possible, usually within 12 hours of ordering. Shipping times are also excellent, with 4 days delivery from time-of-order to doorstep.
When I started this project, the target was to challenge the existing products that were available to re-enactors and take them to a new level of authenticity. By studying original examples, and not other reproductions, the products on Luftwaffe Supplies are always converging to original quality, pattern, look and feel.
One of the processeses that was improved recently is the Visor caps. In fact, we are so happy with them, that we designed a special Visor cap maker label that one can find inside these caps.
We have almost all sizes of Flieger and officer caps in stock. Other piping on order.

... so I'm taking some time off.
Therefore, temporarily, I will not be able to dispatch the packets within 24 hours.
Service will resume on 7th October. All communication will be continued on that day.
When I'm back, I've got some more new items to show you :)
As a re-enactor, my interest and that of many others, has always been about putting the right impression for the period I am portraying. Studies and research is constantly ongoing, coupled with the acquisition and evaluation of original uniforms and equipment. The market today offers a wide array of product but it's difficult to inspect. There's more items than we can ever hope to check out, but when choosing a supplier to go to, it's usually down to the one who's open and transparent about the products, well inform and focused on the topic.
However, experience teaches, and when trying to source some new equipment, it's still quite often a shot in the dark with many suppliers. The images on the product pages are not always detailed enough and usually just from one high-level perspective. No historical background is usually given and purchases for many of us are based upon instinct, hoping that once the package arrives, we receive a product that is close to our expectations as possible.
It should not be like that. Re-enactors and collectors must know exactly what they're getting and feel confident that they will always get their value for money. They go by the saying "Buy once, Buy well", thus the equipment must be authentic, based on original pieces and accompanied by detailed information about the construction and the period use of the item. This has always been the founding ideology of the "Luftwaffe Supplies" project.
It has been a year since this dream of mine became a reality. I am very proud of the products offered on this website. These uniforms and equipment are often compared to original, with side by side shots. We believe that our products must be either of high-quality with European-standard quality checks, or they don't feature at all. Our uniform runs are in small batches, allowing us to carefully inspect every individual item and make micro arrangements where necessary, based on your feedback.
I am a reenactor, and I know how it feels to wait for products being delivered from outside your country. Especially if it's a late order for an event happening next week!
With the orders for July and August, delivery times were still a stunning 4-5 day working day to the UK and countries inside the European Union. All orders are shipped within 24 hours so that you will receive your items in time for that upcoming event!
Typical Delivery times from Order to delivery (in working days):
EU Members: 4-5 days
Other European States: 11-12 days
United States and Australia: 12-18 days
Some have asked for it, while others have been waiting for it ... for some years.
We were asking your very same questions. How come these were never reproduced for the re-enactment and collecting community, in good deatail? The reason we could thing of is that nobody would want to risk making a thousand batches of these uniforms, for the few of us who truly want to to get it right and appreciate the this kind of garments.
The wait is over. We will soon enjoy the proper Summer denim (HBT) uniform of the Luftwaffe, for continental Europe. Have been used extensively by Fallschirmjager, Field Divisions and Herman Goering Troops, this uniform has seen service in Italy, France, Normandy and the Eastern Front.
We have the right pattern and the material for a very small amount. We ask those who are interested in a batch to subscribe to the newsletter to be alerted when I will be taking official pre-orders. You can also drop a message to reserve your slot. Be aware, we only have material for 15 sets.
