Original Early 1980s German Military HBT Workwear Jacket (2)
An original German military chore jacket dating from the early 1980s.
This military work jacket is made from a poly/cotton mix herringbone twill material and is cut in a classic style meaning it could easily pass as an earlier piece. It is a four pocket tunic style jacket with patch pockets to the chest as well as the lower portion. The front and pockets fasten with large metal dish buttons and the elbows feature large reinforcement patches. The rear of the jacket features an elasticated section to the waist giving the jacket extra shape.
Inside the tunic is an interior pocket which fastens with a two position tab and button. A label is present to it although it has been washed out leaving no visibile details. There is a size tag to the nexk which reads '50'.
The tunic will fit around a 42" chest depending on desired fit and when laid flat measures -
Chest - 22 1/2"
Inside arm - 18 1/4"
Outside arm - 25 1/4"
Length - 29"
Shoulders - 18"
The jacket is in good condition with only limited signs of wear and use. It is very wearable but please bear in mind that this is a vintage item so may have other small issues commensurate with age.
Altogether a nice vintage work jacket with some great details - and buttons!
