An original blue end on end cotton collarless shirt made by 'Van Heusen' in the 1950s which is in deadstock, unworn condition and is still in its original packaging.  

This pattern of shirt was worn by officers in the RAF as well as by the police and Fire Service. End on end cotton shirts were used by both throughout the Second World War with this example being a later, 1950s version with a full buttoning front. It features a neckband collar to which a detachable collar can be fitted. The chest features patch pockets.

Inside the neck of the shirt the original label is still present and bears the maker's name 'Van Heusen' as well as the words 'made in England'. The collar size is marked directly to the neckband and reads 16 1/2".

I have not removed the shirt from the packaging and therefore cannot supply measurements. A 16 1/2" neckband will be a medium to large size. 

The shirt is in unworn condition as it is still in its factory packaging. This is a pre-owned, vintage item however so please take time to study the pictures before purchasing. 

A nice original 1950s shirt in good unused condition.
