This is a vintage United States Army Khaki Cotton Twill Shirt with shoulder epaulettes, embroidered military specialist arm badges. The internal print dates this to the 1950s Korean War Era.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition considering it is almost 70 years old, with general signs of wear and abrasion throughout. There is some writing on the back neck collar as well as the back inside hem. The left arm (as worn) also has a small 3mm hole next to the embroidered arm patch as well as some fraying. Freshly laundered 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.
