    You need a 50 or possibly a 52, with a M designation if you want standard arm length.

    I found this one:

    http://www.ebay.de/itm/Gut-erhaltene-Militarjacke-NVA-Jacke-Winterjacke-/301010467012?pt=Militaria&hash=item46159f38c4

    Dunno if you can negotiate with the seller to ship to the UK. He also requires bank transfer for payment, which isn't a problem for me but likely is a no-go for you. I could give it a shot if you like.

    The fake fur collar seems to be missing from most of the ones I've seen lately. This is a bit of a problem because the collars are sized to the jacket. There's always a bunch for sale, but not a great selection of sizes.

    Unfortunately the majority of what I see out there are 44 through 48 or the Mil-Tec fakes. As for the latter, beware of ANYTHING that is brand new in big sizes that doesn't show an NVA or MdI stamp. The Mil-Tec fakes are absolutely impossible to discern from the real kit except for the stamp. At least they were kind enough to not fake that part of it.

    Thanks Steve.

    Just spent an hour or so on Ebay.de and found a few jackets and collars but most for some bizarre reason wont ship to the UK.

    Not a priority just thought it would be nice to have one for the winter.

    Thanks
