The hard kepi is a ridiculous piece of headgear. Nobody ever looked good in it. Even the Foreign Legion look better in almost any other hat they have ever worn.
I fully agree...

So what were the feldgrau uniforms; devoid of insignia, as worn by Goebbels: https://www.google.com/search?q=goebbel ... US1H5h974M

And Hess to do with then?

Hess wore his gray uniform for a very short time around the time of the French Surrender. His visor hat though was still the standard party light brown color. Goebbels also wore a gray Reichsministers double breasted uniform for his state visit to Poland/GeneralGovernment. Again he also wore a standard party visor. Except for this visit he never wore it again. So both of these uniforms could be considered Reichsministers uniforms. Both wore a shoulder eagle instead of any sleeve Ministers "horseshoe" insignias.
