Re: tropical shoulder straps

Ciao Marco.
So far so good. Can you take a close up also on the backing of the tongues?

Re: tropical shoulder straps

Ciao amico. The fabric on the tongues is odd. Not the linen weave i would expect to see. I have seen this fabric again on other fakes. Need to search tomorrow in my archive. I must have saved them somewhere. I would stay away if i were you.

Re: tropical shoulder straps

The first tell is the whitish fibres in the wool - I've yet to see German tropical wool with that in the mix, but the tongue should be shirt material in 'early' sets like this, and no, I'm not getting excited either sad
