$ 38.8
In Stock

Shirt of cold gray-green colour, with pockets. Cotton breathable fabric, knit weave, as it should be on the classic German military shirts. The pockets has simple rectangular shape, without a fold, and similar simple rectangular flap. This is the latest version of the pockets, finally simplified, which appeared not earlier than 1944. There is no crease on the chest either to simplify production and save material. The shirt is sewn on the same patterns as our gray knit shirts without pockets. There are steel four-hole "dish" buttons, painted in the color of the fabric.

Features of the original shirt are well copied: the shape and size of the pockets, long back, pointed ends of the collar. Factory quality, made on professional equipment at the sewing enterprise. The sleeve of this particular model is assembled into the cuff by a simple pucker (it's less beautiful, but faster to make, which was important for the production of the end of the war). Earlier models had some accurate folds instead. Production "Replica", made in Russia.

How to choose size?

You should take another shirt that fits you well. Lay it flat to the floor and make measurements using flexible ruler. The first, shoulder width (along the horisontal shoulder seam where shoulder straps should be, and behind the neck). This measurement is a key measurement, others depend on it. We give you also sleeve lenght and neck around for the information.

Historical reference.

The shirt with pockets appeared in 1943, and from that moment on, soldiers received a good alternative to a field jacket for use on breaks (on vacation, when making positions or eating). It was possible to keep things in your pockets that should always be at hand: documents, cigarettes and even a personal ID-tag (although it was officially restricted to keep the tag in a pocket).

Germany with the beginning of the war went into economy mode. They revised items of clothing and equipment that could be cheaper without losing functionality. Aluminum fittings were replaced with steel, horn buttons for cardboard and plastic. The colors also “floated”: if the main uniform (jacket, trousers, headdress) still remained within the color of “Feldgrau” (gray-green), then secondary elements, in particular shirts, could sew from any dark material.
