    Yes, I made a pre-tied tie out of it by sewing a knot and adding an elastic string.

    It is perfect for Summer, as it is extremely light-weight.

    From the Schneidermeister magazine 1938. Note the elasticated waist and the buttoned pocket just like Fastunis white sports suit.
    The caption seems to point out it was some kind of an official pattern for a sport suits of a NS organisation.

    PS: Of course this doesn't have to mean it is from the same pattern but they did choose a popular model to make it "official".

    Does the text make any mention of what color/fabric the "uniform suit" was going to be?

    Ca. 1928-1932. The fabric is thick, smooth and slightly shiny. It doesn't appear to be linen, but rather flax. (Edit: I think it is nettle fabric.)
    Size is a 38-40 short.






    Wonderful...I'll take one is 42"S!
