Luftwaffe Tropical Side Cap

Sold out.

A true copy of the Luftwaffe tropical Side-cap

Our Luftwaffe tropical sidecap (Tropen Fliegermütze) is made from tan cotton twill fabric. The cap eagle embroidered using grey thread is folded to avoid fraying and hand-stitched to the cap. The tri-colour cockade is wrapped around stiff backing, standing out from the cap, and not sewn flat onto the cap like most other reproductions. Just like the originals.

As with most Luftwaffe tropical headgear, the lining of the cap is made from lightweight tan cotton. 

Size Guideline: Go one 1cm over your standard cap size for the best fit.

Historical Information about the Luftwaffe tropical Side-cap (Fliegermütze)

The Luftwaffe tropical side cap (Tropen-Fliegermütze) was the only headgear issued in quantity and to all personnel wearing tropical uniforms. The shape and pattern follow that continental Fliegermütze, which was sometimes referred to as Luftwaffe schiffchen because it resembled the shape of a boat.
