I gave up on my LB Tunic. Being 6 fett tall . Way to short for me . At the end I was not even wearing the tunic hooks anymore... Got me a ATF Texled . Deffenitly the way to go . If you can still get one...

I believe that the hooks were too high for even the soldiers wearing them during the war...hence the re-adoption of the Y-Straps. But several photos show the problems that were mentioned before over and over again. If I could show them then it would be clear. I think Ed had the right idea, their army only accommodated so many sizes and lengths. Hence the need to have the soldiers themselves adapt the jackets to their own size via tailors, both Wehrmacht and private.
