German Military jumpers
I've seen a few people on TV wearing them and I've also seen people wearing them here. (don't know why since its really hot out)

Anyway, anyone know where I can buy one?

How about this one? from http://west.loadup.com/military/surplus/54164.html


NEW ITEMS : German Mil.-issue Commando Sweater, Olive Drab


"And it has all the bells and whistles that the German troops wear. Shoulder and elbow patches are durable. Velcro® closure epaulets. That's what they use to hold their berets. You can use them to secure your scarf so it doesn't blow off in the blustery winds. May or may not have German flag insignia on each arm."

Cool sweater...I agree that they look better on slim types, the picture of the man above wearing it who has broad shoulders looks like it's not a very flattering shape and like any old jumper. I imagine these would go quite well with some orange overdye jeans and a pair of original german military sneakers to match!

Celine, there's an army surplus store on blv St laurent, and they probably carry those..... Just get off the St Laurent Subway, turn right when you get out and it's on the left side of the street...... About a block or so from the metro.

I haven't seen anyone wear them here though.....

The British has also got commando sweaters that are very similar-almost alike,really. And yes indeed,they are very cool. I think the most popular militaria piece of the German army are those heavy cotton,buttoned combat shirt's with the flags and epaulets. I love German military uniforms though. They are the best,if you ask me...in terms of style.
