    Askari Schutztruppe Colonial Tarboosh Fez

    All comments welcome. Weave is not the typical khaki drill. Colonial Eagle Wappen securely anchored with clasp and stitching. Neck guard attaches to fez/tarboosh with buttons (vs being sewn or attached with hooks). No sweatband as these would have been worn over/cover a fez.
