Light tunic for a soldier of the Wehrmacht model 1942. Herringbone fabric, field gray. It is part of  the set (along with pants and cap).

A distinctive feature of the 1942 model is the absence of folds in the pockets, but at the same time the pentagonal flaps are the same as before. Since 1943, they have also been removed, made straight.

Historical reference.

First "Drillich" uniform was white and intended for work and exercises in barracks to preserve the "main" cloth form. Since February 1940 they started to produce HBT fabric in reed-green color for camouflage purpose.

The "Drillich" uniform was worn during marches and occasionally in combat. "Light" uniform showed itself practical and convenient, and at the beginning of 1942 the army decided to develop "summer" suits on the model 1942 suit base (pocket flaps were pointed). This form was worn with all insignia, as well as cloth one. Later model 1943 HBT suits appeared (simple rectangular pocket flaps).

Such suits along with caps encountered less often than the main (cloth) uniform. And cotton models 1944 never appeared, because the economy of the Reich was not up to "spare" suits by that time...
