There's a Heer panzer officer photographed in a custom made SS camo tunic and many images (taken from film) of Hermann Göring troops in Sicily wearing oak smocks. Many examples will no doubt have existed but been ditched before they could be captured wearing such 'unfashionable' attire at the end of the war.

You're thinking of Adelbert Schulz, right?

Here are three images of him:

He wasn't SS before or during the war, he was a policeman. He would probably have had the company tailor knock it up for him from donor 'Plane Tree' zeltbahn material or a tank overall.
