Combo of Tropical and Continental Set Up

Hi guys, here is my new display.

Tropical hat, woolen wrap, schlauchschal around the neck and tropical straight trousers.

I wasn't sure what kind of belt to use. Webbed or leather? I went with the latter coz it seamed better IMO.

Cheers
Chris

Re: Combo of Tropical and Continental Set Up

Hi Seba, i don't get notifications on this thread despite being subscribed on it hmm

The wrap is clean but has several repairs. Because it's black they are not very visible.

I have marked a few in this photo where the light is falling directly on it thus makes the repairs more visible.

Re: Combo of Tropical and Continental Set Up

My guess is that the repairs were done as part of the restoration job, meaning post war but i have no problem with that either. Preserving history is important.
