The basic uniform of the Luftwaffe consisted of a blue-grey, single-breasted, open-collared jacket with four pockets and flaps; white shirt and black necktie; blue-grey trousers; black leather boots; and a blue-grey peaked cap, side cap or Model 1935 Stahlhelm. Ranks were indicated by collar patches, along with Army-style shoulder boards.
The flying suit typically consisted of a beige jumpsuit, leather flying helmet and thick fur-lined boots. Black leather jackets were also worn by fighter pilots. The eagle insignia was different from the rest of the Wehrmacht: its wings curved upward and the swastika did not have a circle around it.

Famous quotes containing the word uniform:
“Ive always been impressed by the different paths babies take in their physical development on the way to walking. Its rare to see a behavior that starts out with such wide natural variation, yet becomes so uniform after only a few months.”
