An original British Army Windproof Cadet Smock in a larger size 4. 

Officially designated 'Smock Windproof Green Cadet Forces (AD), these smocks were based on the Blacks standard anorak and saw extensive use throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Made from a green coloured, tight weave cotton; this smock features a large pocket to the centre of the chest which seals with velcro, two lower patch pockets which fasten with buttons a white nylon drawstring to the waist and another to the hood. The hood features a short zip and plain, chrome plated zip puller. To the rear of the smock the numbers '264' have been stenciled in black. 

Inside the smock the original label is still present. It is quite faded but the title can just be made out as can the size of 4. 

When laid flat the smock measures - 

Chest - 23 1/2"
Inside arm - 21"
Outside arm - 26 1/2"
Length - 32"
Shoulders - 21 1/2"

The overall condition of the smock is good with some signs of wear and use. It is still very wearable with no major flaws or issues but please take time to study the pictures and bear in mind that this is a vintage, pre-worn item. 

A nice example of this pattern of smock in a good size. These are quickly becoming very sought-after!
