    Original WW2 First Pattern US Army HBT Jacket

    Original WW2 First Pattern US Army HBT Jacket

    Item details

    An original early Second World War first pattern American HBT Jacket in great condition

    This early pattern of US Herringbone Twill jacket was used throughout the Second World War by The US Army, The USAAF and more. It features the distinctive double buttons and waist adjusters to the waistband which are synonymous with this pattern. Metal 'doughnut' buttons are fitted throughout. To the front of the jacket are two pleated breast pockets and the cuffs function, fastening with metal doughnut buttons. 

    The jacket is a large size which will suit up to a 42" chest but will fit smaller. Based on the measurements I think it would have originally been labeled as a 40R When laid flat it measures - 

    Chest - 23"
    Inside arm - 20 1/2"
    Outside arm - 23 1/2"
    Shoulders - 18 1/2"
    Length - 26 1/2"

    The condition of the jacket is very good overall as can be seen in the pictures. There is a mark to the inside of the collar and a few more to the sleeves. It is still very wearable but please take time to study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that this is a vintage, pre-worn jacket which has some issues commensurate with his. 

    This early jacket could be ideal for a re-enactor due to its large size but would also make a nice addition to any WW2 collection.
