First Appearance (WWI Uniform)
Germany wore this uniform at the beginning of Hetalia: Chapter 1, when he was searching to fight the heir to the Roman Empire, Italy. He wears a button-down jacket, riding pants tucked into boots, and a wide belt with shoulder straps attached to it (that tuck under the epaulets of his jacket).
The meeting of Germany and Italy was retold in Prologue of the first published volume, though Germany's WWI uniform stayed the same. In both versions, this uniform is quickly abandoned after Italy's capture.
In the only colored webcomic image featuring this uniform, it is shown to be steel blue and with a black collar. In the anime adaptation, the color of the uniform was changed to green.

- Prologue (Hetalia: Axis Powers volume 1)
- Episodes 1 and 2 of the anime.
In the lead-up to the second World War, Germany began to dress in a green SS (Waffen division) uniform, and wore an Iron Cross necklace underneath the collar of it. He is shown to wear this uniform in other WWII-era strips.
In the anime adaptation, the Iron Cross was removed and the color of the uniform was changed to teal, presumably to downplay the SS connections. However, when the Axis training sequences were shown in the anime, Germany was shown to be wearing green.

- Episode 03
When training, Germany wears a black shirt, his usual green breeches and a cap. This same outfit is also shown in the island segments in the anime, though the breeches and cap are changed to teal like the rest of his uniform.
Appearances (Training Clothes)
African War Front (Fighter Pilot)
In a 2009 sketch, Himaruya drew Germany's African War Front uniform in detail, depicting him as wearing one of a fighter pilot.
He wears a tan short-sleeved button-down shirt, tan shorts, and a pair of short tan boots. He also wears a black hat, gloves, and has a shoulder strap over his right shoulder.
Eastern Front (Officer)
A sketch by Himaruya (in the series of select Axis Powers in WWII uniforms) depicts Germany wearing this uniform, which consists of a long green coat (with black cuffs, collar, and gloves), shoulder straps attached to his belt, and black boots. He continues to wear the Iron Cross under his collar.
Common Clothes (WWI)
When he had to pay back France after WWI, Germany was shown to wear a long-sleeved shirt, vest, and long trousers.
When shown at world meetings (such as in the chapter Meeting Of The World), Germany wears a deep brown suit with a matching tie and white dress shirt.
In the Academy Hetalia Christmas chapter of the published manga (as well as the anime episode), the teenage Germany wears a deep blue blazer with a tan sweater vest and white dress shirt underneath it, as well as a black tie and blue plaid pants. He also wears a pair of glasses.
He wears the same outfit in Gakuen Hetalia Portable. He is also shown to wear a brown suit and tie for his formal clothes, and a black tank top and green pants (sans glasses) for his casual clothes.
In the story :) In The World, Germany wore a long winter coat with a black turtleneck and trousers underneath. He was also shown to wear his training cap with the outfit.
In the anime adaptation of the story, he instead wore his training clothes, as the setting was altered for the story to take place on a tropical island (rather than a winter setting). But in the 2010 Hetalia calendar, an illustration done by Masaaki Kannan depicts the Axis and Allies in the winter outfits they wore in the original manga telling. Germany's coat and cap are revealed to be colored teal, like the anime version of his military uniform.
