Made In Berlin  

A Deputy Reichsleiter Overcoat For Sale With Berlin Tailors Label and

Rock Star Provenance

 

The Deputy Reichsleiter overcoat tailored in fine 'political brown' doeskin with  Deputy Reichsleiter collar patch insignia for Hauptbefehlsleiter, and 'Leiter Eine Ober-amtes' brassard with 22.00 mm [wide] oakleaf borders. The lapels with typical yellow piping. The overcoat with  gold-coloured buttons with eagle & swastika motif, gold-coloured silk lining, machine-woven Berlin tailor-label to the left inside pocket, single-[buttoned] back vent and French cuffs.

Condition report: The Deputy Reichsleiter overcoat in excellent overall condition: the collar patch insignia and armband, fresh. Some mothing, particularly to the cuff edges and hem. The buttons commensurate with age and a complete set.

Sartorial notes: The overcoat tailored from premium wool doeskin [possibly merino], the nap being particularly 'close'  to enable a fluid cut, and optimise hydrophobic characteristics. The  tailoring style and technique[s] typical for the period in general, and Berlin in particular. Size to fit 40 inch [medium-large], chest thereabouts.

Rank notes: Reichsleiter [National Leader or Reich leader] was the second highest political rank of the N.S.D.A.P. and immediately below the office of Fuhrer. The rank was held by approximately 20 individuals: Deputy Reichsleiter, as the term implies, reported  directly to the higher office. 

Provenance: Acquired by English rock, blues and soul singer, Chris Farlowe, while touring the USA [1970s]. Two collections thereafter.
