Original 1950s Khaki Cotton Drill Shirt
An original khaki coloured cotton drill shirt dating from the 1950s and in exellent condition.
It is hard to pinpoint the exact origin of this shirt although it clearly dates from the 1950s. The buttons could suggest it is of European origina as could the large, slayed spearpoint collar shape. The full button front is typical of the 1950s and the heavy cotton drill material is also common to find during this period. It is quite possible that this shirt was tailored to an individuals specific request, hence the pleated patch pockets and scaloped pocket flaps.

Chest - 22"
Inside arm - 18 1/4""
Outside arm - 22 1/2"

The shirt is in very good condition for its age and shows only very limited signs of wear and age. Please study the pictures before purchasing.
