Luftwaffe evening dress uniform for a medical Oberst is tailored of fine quality wool with matching trousers and blue-grey vest. Augsburg tailor's label.  Hand embroidered bullion breast eagle. Shoulderboards with dark blue underlay, 2 gilt pips and gilt caduceus on each. There is an Army pattern aiguilette buttoned under the shoulder board which should be removed and replaced with the correct Luftwaffe pattern. The jacket retains its chained button closure. Trousers are tailored of matching wool with aluminum bullion Tresse side stripes. There are a few moth nips to the trousers as can be seen in the images. Both the white vest for formal evening wear and matching blue-grey vest for informal evening wear are present. There are some yellowed edge areas from being worn. Accompanying the set is a proper style black bow tie and a set of formal black suspenders. Overall the set shows that it was worn but, except as noted, displays no other damage. Excellent ensemble.
