Comprehensive Guide to East German Sizes

The East Germans used a variety of sizing systems to measure their uniforms and uniform components. These systems differed considerably from those used in the U.S.A. and Britain, as well as by the West German armed forces. The charts below should prove useful to collectors as they try to make size comparisons.
