1940s Vintage Khaki Shirt
1930s-40s Military special combat shirt in khaki with added details to protect in case of gas attack. All cotton. Large chest pockets. a windflap or doubled panel on the chest and added gussets to the sleeve cuff are the additional protection that was provided along with two buttons on the underside back of the collar for fastening a gas mask hood. The extra long tuck in style hem has side gusset panels. We also think these shirts would have been beneficial in a desert zone to keep out sand. Another interesting design detail is the surprisingly stylish curve of the collar. very generously cut sleeves. Has a small square muslin spec tag on the hem which is no longer readable. Excellent vintage condition. Neck 15" Chest 40" Sleeve 35" Excellent vintage condition.
