An original British made three button undershirt made by 'St. Michael' in the early 1960s.
This style of shirt was very popular with men throughout the whole first half of the 20th century and formed a key part of many wardrobes. This example is a cotton, wool, rayon, nylon blend which replaced the early all wool style although the design is the same as was used for many years. Three buttons fasten the front finishing at the wide, reasonably low neckline. The sleeves feature knitted cuffs designed to hug the wearer whilst allowing for movement.
The original label is still present inside the shirt and states the maker's name as 'St. Michael' who are better known as Marks & Spencers today. It states the style as 'heavyweight' and the size as large.
When laid flat the shirt measures -
Chest - 21 1/2"
Length - 26"
Shoulders - 22"
This example is in new old stock condition and has never been worn. It is still a vintage item so may have small issues consummate with age.
A very nice, wearable vintage item!
