This is a vintage circa 1950s United States Army Khaki Cotton Twill Shirt with shoulder epaulettes and 1 military embroidered arm patch. The patch identifies the previous owner as part of the 102nd infantry division, also referred to as “Ozark”, a unit of the US army in WW2.
Used and in good vintage condition considering it is circa 70 years old, with general signs of wear, abrasion, discolouration and some small marks to the back of the shirt. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.

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.
