Original 1950s French Army Green Wool V-Neck Sweater - Size 5 40

Original 1950s French Army Green Wool V-Neck Sweater - Size 5 40"

Code: 54837


An original 1950s French Army Wool Pullover V-Neck Jumper in a size 5 which will fit a 40" chest.

This pattern of jumper closely follows the pattern used by the French Army during the Second World War. It is cut short in the body to suit being worn with high waisted trousers. This makes it ideal for someone who wears this style or a re-enactor interested in WW2.

These jumpers are made from a khaki green wool typical of the period. They are new old stock items which have come straight from French Army Surplus. 

The shade of green can vary slightly to that shown in the picture as can the labels. 

These jumpers stretch out with wear. I have been wearing 2 different examples for 4-5 years now and they have stretched under the arms, across the chest to fit my body. Whilst they may seem tight to begin with I suggest buying the size you wear as labelled on the jumper. This size measures at 19" across the chest but will pull out to a larger size with wear.

Condition is new old stock but may need washing as they have been in storage for many years. These jumpers have never been worn but are a vintage item from the 1950s.

Each jumper is slightly different and may have signs of age etc. You will be sent one jumper similar to those pictured from my stock.

A great original period jumper which would look great with both modern and vintage clothes!
