    The first issue of greatcoats had a dark Feldgrau collar. In September 1935 this colour was substituted with dark emerald green. In 1940 the colour was changed to Feldgrau and it remained that way since then.

    All greatcoats were made of woollen cloth; they had turned-up cuffs, two rows of six buttons, two pockets with straight flaps and an adjustable strap with two buttons on the back. The lining only came down to the waist and it was made of brownish grey cotton or grey or brownish grey synthetic silk.
