The New Hugo Boss Look


In 1934, Hitler's SS had a new uniform designed for them by leading fashion guru, Hugo Boss.  The new look was 'black' and at the time, the striking SS uniform was the one everyone wanted to be seen wearing, particularly members of the German royal households.

 

This Allgemeine-SS black visor cap epitomises the Hugo Boss look.

 

Item description: Allgemeine-SS peak visor cap  for sale. The SS-Allgemeine officer visor cap originally belonging to SS-Hauptsturmführer Dr. Otto Monckmeier. Bearing all the attributes of a cap made in the later 1930s,  it has the typically high-fronted saddle-shape, along with both the nickel-silver M1936 eagle, swastika and skull badges.

The  Allgemeine-SS peak visor cap is made from the highest quality black wool doeskin cloth, with white piping and black velvet capband. The eagle, swastika and skull badge insignia are both neatly positioned and firm.
