Left Litze

Here is an early Litze as intended for the left side of the collar.
It came from a roll that was found recently.

Re: Left Litze

The actual color of the stripes on early Litzen is copper brown. Unfortunately cameras cannot take the real color which is not correctly depicted in any of the above photos.

Re: Left Litze

Yeap, i got the strap too (at last) tongue

regarding Litzen. I agree about the shades, fading etc but i have noticed that 1st and early made 2nd pattern tunics have these examples with copper/brown stripes rather than the gold ones.

Here are some examples from 1st pattern tunics.

Re: Left Litze

Yeah that would be great Dermot.

Marco thanks for your contribution.

Today i was browsing my tunics and noticed that one of my second patterns which has factory applied Litzen has the stripes in greenish color.

So it makes me wonder, has anyone seen on a tunic Litzen with golden stripes?
