An original men's collared shirt made in France in the 1940s.

This style of shirt was popular in Europe during the 1930s and 1940s. It features a spearpoint collar as was popular during this period and a half-placket front. It is made from cotton and features a checked pattern of sky blue and cream. The sleeves end in a double cuff which are intended to be worn with cufflinks. Inside the shirt the original label is still present and is bright and legible. It bears the maker's name of 'BE BE' which was founded in 1877.

The shirt will fit someone with around a 38 chest depending on desired fit. When laid flat it measures -

Chest - 22"
Inside arm - 24"
Outside arm - 26"
Shoulders - 17 1/4"
Collar - 15 1/2"

It is important to remember that the cuff is intended to be worn doubled back. When worn like this 2 1/4" need to be detracted from the stated sleeve length. 

The shirt is in good condition with limited signs of wear and age. There are no serious flaws or damage but it is a vintage item so please study the pictures carefully before purchasing and bear in mind that it is a vintage, pre-worn item which may have small flaws commensurate with age. 

A nice original German shirt which is typical of the era and in a great colourway.
