L001669 SHORT SLEEVE TROPICAL SHIRT. (Tropenhemd)

BACKGROUND: The Luftwaffe tropical shirt was introduced, along with other tropical clothing and equipment items, in late 1940 and was originally developed for wear for personnel serving in North Africa. The design of the shirt was based on the standard continental shirt but in a different color and material. Originally the shirts were the pullover style with a four button front plaquet but later issue shirts were altered to the full button up front.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Restored early pattern, light weight, cotton construction, short sleeve shirt with a lay down collar. The shirt features a four button, vertical front closure plaquet and two pleated, patch, breast pockets with subtly scalloped button down flaps. Breast eagle has been restored. Shirt has numerous repairs, some wartime and others post war done. The shirt is roughly size 36" chest. Rough, but priced accordingly.
