An original 1940s Women's physical training sports shirt in orange and brown.
This shirt is typical of those worn for sporting activities during the 1940s and may well have been made for the military. It is made from a striking yellow-orange waffle pique honeycomb cotton fabric and features contrasting brown collar and cuffs.
When laid flat the shirt measures -
Chest - 18 1/2"
Shoulders - 16"
Collar - 15 1/2"
The shirt is in worn condition with some marks and various fades. Structurally it is sound and still wearable but please take time to study the pictures and bear in mind that this is a pre-worn item which has some staining etc.
A nice original mid century sports top in a great cloth and in a striking colourway.
