Tunic is fabricated from black wool, the shoulders adorned with shoulder straps that are sewn in place, the straps in black wool and trimmed in pink piping, with a reinforced button hole and a pebbled gray finished zinc button at the shoulder end. There is a white embroidered Panzer breast eagle sewn in place on the right breast, along with two stacked horizontal loops on the left breast for the placement of an award. Panzer collar tabs on both protruding collar ends, each is fabricated with black wool uppers and trimmed in pink piping, each with a magnetic silvered metal Panzer skull insignia affixed. The left lapel has an East Medal ribbon fed through the reinforced button hole and sewn in place, while the upper left sleeve has a fine silvered aluminum wire two stripe Obergefreiter rank chevron sewn in place. There are three small and four large buttons at the front on the far right side, facing an equal number of reinforced button holes at the left side opening, the smaller ones on the outside, the larger ones on the inside. There are also two small buttons at the right side opening, along with a hook and eye at the collar opening. Inside, there are gray cotton vertical panels extending from the armpits to the bottom seam, with two black cotton ties sewn at the midway point, each panel flanked by a narrow strip of gray cotton with large hooks. The right side with a top entry pocket sewn upon the vertical panel, a side entry pocket on the left side panel, the left panel stamped in black ink at the top "92" with "43" over "60" at the left, "42" over "66" at the right and "B 40" below, an "M" hand stitched on the left edge of the panel near the armpit, hand written in blue ink "14623" on the pocket, stamped in black ink "31093" and hand written in blue ink "31093" below the pocket. There is an 85 mm long gray cotton strap sewn in place in the collar for hanging the tunic on a hook, the tunic measuring 420 mm across the shoulders x 570 mm in length. The britches are in a matching black wool to that of the tunic. It has a four button fly with a large hook and eye fixture at the waist for a secure fit.

The rear is single-vented at the waist and comes with an adjustable buckle and strap, to aid in a snug fit at the waistline. Threading remains on both tips of the venting, the original buttons having been lost to time. The crotch has a reinforced gray cotton patch for lasting durability. The legs are flared in the thighs, with the pants themselves reaching down to the mid-calf. Both pant leg cuffs are vented with six buttons each and corresponding reinforced stitching on the button holes. The waist area is lined with a 115 mm wide vertically striped rayon panel, stamped in red ink with an "N" inside a circle on the panel above the right rear pocket, with a black rayon label with white embroidered characters sewn below the circled "N", the label inscribed "Vom Reichsführer befohlene Ausführung" (Ordered by Execution of the Reichsführer) and marked with the SS Runes at the left and the RZM (Reichszeugmeisterei) insignia at the right.
