Original 1950s British Army Officers Jungle Green Aertex Shirt - LARGE
A nice original Jungle Green shirt which belonged to an Officer serving with the British Army and dating from the 1950s.
The shirt is made from cellular cotton, often referred to as 'Aertex' which is a lightweight, breathable fabric which is ideally suited for wear in hot climates. It features a fully buttoning front and two pleated patch pockets to the chest. The epaulettes have stitched holes which would have had a regimental titles and officers rank affixed to it originally. The layout of these would suggest the original owner was of a high rank.
The shirt is a large size which will fit around a 44" chest depending on desired fit. When laid flat it measures -
Chest - 25"
Length at front - 33 1/2"
Length at back - 37
Shoulders - 18 1/2"
The shirt is in good condition with only limited signs of wear and use. It may have small issues consummate with age and wear but overall it displays very well indeed.
A nice original shirt in a hard to find large size!
