Original 1960s British Jungle Green Aertex Shirt

Code: 51910


An original British Jungle Green shirt dating from the 1960s and in good condition.

The shirt is made from cellular cotton which is often referred to as 'Aertex'. It is a lightweight, breathable fabric ideally suited to the tropics and was popular with the British military during WW2 as well as in the post-war years.

The shirt features a full button front, pleated chest pockets, epaulettes and long sleeves. The original label is present to the inside of the neck but has sadly been washed out. The original owners name has been marked above the collar and reads ''Loveys'.

When laid flat the shirt measures -

Chest - 23"
Inside arm - 21"
Outside arm - 23 1/2"
Shoulders - 17 3/4"
Length at front - 33"
Length at back - 36"

The shirt is in very good condition with only limited signs of wear and use. There are two lines running down the rear of the shirt, most likely where pleats have been removed. Please note however that this is pre-worn vintage item and may have small issues consummate with this.

A nice original 1960s shirt made in that great cellular cotton material!
