This is a vintage 1940s WWII Era US Military issue olive green Herringbone Twill (HBT) set of coveralls, with 13 star metal buttons, plenty of pockets for all your kit and a button through front. Made in the USA.
Used and in overall good vintage condition considering the age, with heavy signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration. There are some marks to the lower right leg (as worn) as well as a tiny hole to the lower left leg and marks to the lower right cuff. Freshly steamed and ready for a new owner.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
