Cotton was not not easily available within the Third Reich early of the war. The blockade by the allies affected importation of Cotton from South America and it was only until the Wehrmacht advanced into Russia that there could be good supply of Cotton.But as the borders of the Reich were closing in on Germany, cotton was at a premium and by 1944 it was only available from Surplus stocks in France and Italy. It was at this time that Summer HBT uniforms started were needed for the Summer periods. As the war progressed, the HBT mix was very linen dominant and later on, these were made entirely from linen.

 

Although the Luftwaffe had their HBT tunics in Blue-Gray, by 1943, an order was issued that only green fabric was to be produced, and effectively, reed green was produced for both Luftwaffe and Heer Summer Combat Uniforms.
