Original army jackets model 1932, sewn after the war (1970-s), suitable for reenactment. The Telogrejka is a great thing for daily use outside the city; it is warm, light and comfortable winter clothes. Dimensions are given in growth-numbers (Soviet system). The larger the number, the larger the size (volume) of the product.
Do not confuse these quilted jackets with those in military shops of wider assortment and souvenir stores! They sell copies sewn in our time from modern fabric: both in composition and in the way of weaving. But we offer things made in the USSR according to pre-war patterns.
Jackets are new, not used, from a stock.
Why are these jackets called Telogreyka?
Word Telogreyka consists of 2 Russian words: telo (тело — body) and gret' (греть — to warm). I think now it's very clear to understand!
We have one jacket of size 2, where the baize (soft fluffy fabric) is used as a lining. Check before buying whether there are any.
Fluffy baize lining (rare).
As can be seen in the photo, the fabric on different jackets can be lighter or darker, the color and material of the lining can be different, different stamps can stand (or be absent). Specify in the order all the features of the jackets, if they are important to you. We can also send a photo of your jacket exactly — for approval before sending. We are always in touch!
How to choose size?
The size of the pants fits the size of the jacket, that is, the jacket and pants are worth buying the same size. You can choose the size remotely. It is important that the jacket fits the shoulder width and the breast first. No need to measure yourself naked! Measure yourself in the clothes over which you are going to wear the padded jacket. The recommended chest size in the table is given so that the quilted jacket sits tight (as it should be so that the fighter has a gent look). If you want to wear your quilted jacket loosely, choose the next size that suits your chest circumference. Then you can check the length of the sleeve. If it is not enough for you, take the next size, shoulders are wider there and the sleeve will come out longer.
Soviet soldiers in full sets of cottonwool quilted jackets and pants. The collars of the field blouses of commanders were out so that the rank could be seen.
You will need a flexible meter or at least a rope. Measure similar winter jacket that suits you. Measurements:
• Chest around — the circumference of the torso over clothing (the maximum that will fit into the quilted jacket);
• Shoulder width — along the shoulder seams and behind the collar (no need to measure with a ruler in a straight line, this is wrong);
• Back length — from the collar down in a straight line;
• Sleeve length — from the shoulder seam down in a straight line.
|Size (growth) of jacket ||European size||Обхват груди||Shoulder width||Back length||Sleeve length|
|2||48 = S||98||46||68||61|
|3||50 = M||100|
|4||52 = L||104||49||72||64|
|5||54 = XL||108|
|6||56 = 2XL||112|
You should choose the size near "Add to cart" button. If the required size is not there, then it is now (already) out of stock. Sizes larger than the 4 are extremely rare. If you see this size on sale, then this is most likely a new-made item, and not the original quilted jacket produced by the USSR.
How to care for the product?
The soldiers at the front did not have the opportunity to wash winter suits (especially in the washing machine). Washing cottonwool jacket in a washing machine is an extreme measure. First you just need to wash it with a sponge or a soft brush and soap or detergent for natural fabrics in those places where it is dirty (usually elbows, cuffs). You can wash off the detergent with a jet of water (shower in the bathroom, for example). Washing jacket is the removal of dirt from external surfaces. Since it has cottonwool inside, there is nothing to wash inside; moreover, after getting wet, the cottonwool can shrink and the jacket will no longer be so plump and warm.
You also need to remember that the Soviet uniform of the mid-twentieth century was made with emphasis on mass, reliability and affordability, and not on beauty and quality. In the case of this, this means that the color of the fabric does not hold well. If they are rubbed heavily with water, then the fabric will brighten in these places. The same thing happens if you crawl in this jacket in the snow for a long time — your elbows turn white (the paint will be wiped off the fabric). No need to think that these jackets are any bad. Just modern synthetic fabrics are much more durable and reliable. You can not compare a vintage product and a product created using modern technology! Imagine a comparison of a car of the mid-twentieth century and a modern one on the road — agree, an unfair and useless comparison? Old-style uniforms have their advantages and disadvantages over modern ones, and this must be taken into account when wearing and when caring for it.
