Luftwaffe Tropical Side Cap

What's my Size?

A true Luftwaffe tropical Side-cap

The Luftwaffe tropical schiffchen (Tropen Fliegermütze) is made from tan cotton twill fabric. The cap eagle embroidered using gray 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 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)
