  1. Chris, it’s almost identical to yours. I’m not sure how many colors Prussia used for the Litewka. Also, I don’t know how many NCOs and officers may have ordered private made Litewka in field gray. 
    I know there’s a photos of a field gray Wurttemberg Dragoon Litewka from a feldwebel turned offizierstellvertreter in FELDZUG 1914 or 15 BY MICHAEL BALDWIN.

    It dont looks as a M1915 Bluse , appears as lightweight and it dont have the rear skirts upper buttons neither the lateral hooks,, with the Bluse the Leib hussars used a special type of Shoulder Cords dark red and yellow interwoven with trefoil shape .

    You’re correct on multiple points.  I think the cut of the tunic is exactly that of the litewka and the insignia used is for the litewka.  
     

    Attached are a couple more examples that I found. It’s very interesting to learn about more styles of dress. I’ve not spent a lot of time on cavalry style dress and almost no time on pre-war uniforms.
