K005981 KAISERLISCHE/REICHSMARINE TROPICAL SHIRT.
1920's or early 1930's German private purchase tan cotton tropical shirt for the Reichsmarine (I think). German cotton rectangular makers label in the collar states it is guaranteed Egyptian cotton. Long sleeve shirt with two pockets, green buttons, and small green Reichsmarine (or maybe older Kaiserliche Marine) buttons and cotton loops for shoulder straps (that had narrow tongues) on the shoulders. This shirt is extremely heavily sun-faded; it was once a mustard color like that used in issue colonial uniforms (i.e., Kolonial Amt issued) for colonial troops (Schutztruppe). The only hint of the original mustard color now is down inside the pockets (photo). Possibly even pre-WW1 vintage officer's private purchase. An unusual shirt in that it buttons down the front the whole way while, except dress shirts for formal events, most German shirts of this period only buttoned half way down the front. Chest size 36".
