$49.99

Reproduction WWII German Umbral sunglasses. Vintage look and feel with modern durability and protection. These sunglasses adhere to all FDA requirements.

This style of sunglasses is most closely associated with the Luftwaffe, although I have seen period ads which also promoted them to other branches. These replicate the original sample from my collection as closely as possible. The only two differences of note are the hinges for the frames which are of a more durable modern design and the color of the acetate turned out a little bit lighter and a bit more red than I anticipated. You can see the color difference in the photos comparing the repro to the original. The sunglasses feature a side shade blended into the acetate frames to help block side glare. This side feature is more "striped" whereas the original is a solid color. The arms wrap around the ears, but do so a bit more comfortably than the wire frames of the era. Marked D.R.P.ang on the inside arm.

This is a very stylish pair of sunglasses that really stands out and would be just as good for everyday use as for reenacting. The style of the glasses and the fit is like the original; they are relatively sleek compared with the bulky modern glasses people are used to these days. 

Dimensions (approximate): 5" across and 4 7/8" between the arms, arm length to the hook of the earpiece is 4".

These are designer quality sunglasses custom made to our specifications. They are copied from an original pair and made exclusively for War's End Shop (Kriegsende Militaria). The actual suggested retail was several hundred dollars and they do feel like expensive sunglasses. You can really treat yourself without spending designer sunglasses money. See my other listings for more reproduction WWII (US & German) sunglasses.

NOTE: As mentioned above, these are more RED than they might appear in some photos. The color is a very dark red, not as brown as I had wanted. It is a dark red, but still red none-the-less.


I DO COMBINE SHIPPING! I tried to have it set up to automatically combine shipping costs, but that doesn't always work. If you feel it is not correctly combining shipping, please write in the order notes "combine shipping" or something of that nature when you order (not as a separate message). The note in the order flags it for me so it is easier for me to keep track and refund accordingly. I know there should be a simpler way of doing this, but I haven't figured it out, so this is my best option at the moment.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: I must declare FULL VALUE on customs forms. This means you may have to pay customs fees upon arrival.
