    About this item

    An original WW2 United States Army Second Pattern Herringbone Twill jacket in used condition.

    This pattern of jacket was introduced to replace the first pattern example and saw service throughout the rest of the war. The jacket is made from the herringbone twill material used for all US Army workwear during the Second World War and is fitted with metal 13 star buttons throughout. The jacket features large pockets to the chest which are the most obvious piece of design found on the second pattern jacket. The cuffs can be fastened around the wearer's wrists in two positions and two more 13 star buttons are located to the rear of the collar. To the right sleeve a Technical Sergeant rank badge is fitted which is embroidered on felt.

    The original size tag is no longer present although it was most likely originally labelled as a 34R or a 34S. It will easily fit a modern 36" chest and when laid flat the jacket measures - 

    Chest - 21 1/2"
    Inside arm - 20"
    Outside arm - 22"
    Shoulders - 18 1/4"
    Length - 28"

    The jacket is in good condition with some signs of wear and use. It has some repairs and some of the buttons have been changed which really adds to the character of the jacket. It displays well and is still very wearable but please study the pictures carefully before purchasing. 

    A good original WW2 fatigue jacket!
