Vintage M-47 Korean War Cotton HBT Twill US Army Shirt

Second Sunrise

Regular price $99.00 Sale

A great exampel of a vintage M-47 US Army shirt. Part of the basic work utility uniform that was issued for the US Army back in 1947.

The fabric is a nicely worn cotton herringbone twill, a fabric that got its name because the texture resembles the skeleton of a herring. This weaving technique is most commonly used in wool textiles and for more dressed up suits, but during the 40s and 50s it was also used in the military garments as in this case. The cotton herringbone fabric is referred to as the "HBT twill".

This shirt is vintage and has been used a lot but it is in great condition for it's age, with some small stains and wear. Someone has decided to cut the sleeves off it and made it into a short sleeve shirt instead.
