I have always liked the Hugo Boss designed black uniforms of the SS., with the great leather coats

Further back, perhaps the Light Brigade. I like red

I have always liked the well-plumed Bersaglieri, especially when they're doing their running musical march:


Sinister rather than cool is perhaps the best word for SS and Gestapo uniforms and regalia; the dark regressive cultic aspect of the Nazi movement comes to the fore in them. They have a strong appeal for a particular kind of fetishist.
