Long cut telogrieka with fall collar. This example is in nice condition, with only and easily repaired seam separation of about 1 inch in the rear of the left sleeve union. Black exterior with a dark grey interior, 4 button front closure, and made with no cuff buttons. There is one external, patch pocket. This type of Telogrieka has been debated on various forums, but in my opinion (and I think facts support this) this garment was issued to German POWs by their Soviet captors. Numerous Budesarchiv photos show POWs returning home in large number, with many wearing such clothing. Known in Germany as a “Heimkehrerjacke” or “Homecommer’s Jacket” for that very reason. Was this the exclusive issue of such a telogrieka? Such is really unknown.
