This is a vintage US Army Wool Field Shirt. There is no internal label but based on the style and manufacturing of the shirt we estimate that it is from the 1950s, Korean War Era. Made in the USA.
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear and abrasion. There is a hand written name to the back neck. Freshly steamed and ready for its 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 and will not smell like new, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.
COLOUR: Olive Green
SIZE: No size label and this fits like S / M (UK Sizing) with a 41in full external chest and the overall fit - but it depends how loose you like to wear (please see below for all key measurements to check against a similar garment of your own to ensure a good fit).
FABRIC: 85% Wool, 15% Nylon
- Button front

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.
EXTERNAL MEASUREMENTS: Please check against a similar garment of your own that fits you well, measuring flat and fully zipped or buttoned up on a flat surface.
